Super Hoops 1-3 for last 16 after stunning Barca

CELTIC pulled off an amazing Champions League shock last night as goals from midfielder Victor Wanyama and teenage striker Tony Watt sealed a 2-1 victory over Barcelona in Glasgow.

Neil Lennon's men, who came so close to holding the Spanish giants at Camp Nou two weeks ago, landed odds of 19-2 at home, surviving a late Lionel Messi goal to take all three points.

Barcelona stay top of Group G but Lennon's men are second on seven points and Hills make them 1-3 to qualify for the last 16.

They are three points clear of nearest rivals Benfica, who beat Spartak Moscow 2-0 last night, and travel to Portugal in a fortnight.

Barca are still 5-2 favourites for the Champions League with Celtic available to back at 200-1.

The other two matches involving British clubs also produced plenty of excitement as Chelsea and Manchester United rewarded those who kept faith by landing huge in-play odds.

Defending champions Chelsea snatched a crucial 3-2 win over Shakhtar Donetsk at Stamford Bridge thanks to a 94th-minute winner from substitute Victor Moses just as they had hit 60 in-play on Betfair.

Qualification still isn't a done deal for the Blues, though they can fall back on a home clash with Nordjaelland on matchday six following their forthcoming trip to Juventus, who beat the minnows 4-0 last night.

Chelsea are 1-3 to progress with Hills and 16-1 to retain their European crown.

Manchester United required three goals in the last ten minutes from Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez to claim a 3-1 win at Braga.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side were 33-1 to turn the match around as they trailed to Alan's penalty early in the second half, but they were rejuvenated after a delay in the second half due to floodlight failure.

United became the first of the British sides to qualify for the last 16 after a fourth win from four matches and are 10-1 to reclaim the trophy they last won in 2008.

Bet365's Steve Freeth said it was a bad night for his firm. "Celtic were a good result on the coupon," he said, "but they didn't go unbacked in singles and we've finished well behind with no draws."

Match in Focus


Poland v Colombia

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Colombia are unbeaten in their last seven games against European teams
Expert verdict
It was hard to assess Colombia after their 2-1 loss to Japan because they were massively handicapped by playing the vast majority of the game with ten men. James Rodriguez may be ready to start the second game and can help the Colombians bounce back against Poland, who were poor in their opening defeat to Senegal.
