Rogic & Celtic secure vital Champions League win

Socceroos midfielder Tom Rogic in action for Celtic in the UEFA Champions League

It is assumed that the tie offers Celtic, who lost 5-0 at home to PSG in their first Champions League fixture, the best chance to pick up points.

The Belgians have been in a bit of turmoil recently and have recently sacked their manager, however the Bhoys' less than stellar away record on their travels in Europe meant that a positive result was by no means a foregone conclusion.

Forward Leigh Griffiths netted in the 38th minute after an initially slow first half - scoring after a lengthy series of 28 passes between Celtic players that ended with Kieran Tierney whipping in a ideal cross for Griffiths to strike home.

Nigerian forward, Henry Onyekuru, and his teammates in Anderlecht will earn £35,000 each if they defeat Scottish Champions, Celtic in Wednesday's UEFA Champions League Group B game in Brussels.

Roberts doubled Celtic's lead on 51 minutes after pressing the ball and winning possession before cutting inside on his left foot and firing a shot on goal that was deflected into the net.

Whilst getting through the group remains a tough task given that Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also in the group, Celtic have put themselves in the box seat for third place, and a spot in the Europa League.

Sure, they are a very poor lot by Champions League standards, and they posed little threat to Celtic in Brussels.

"I think people recognise this is a good side that is developing well".

"We go back to past year, with our away form we grew in confidence", he said.

"As a team then we were very, very good defensively".

Rodgers became only the second Celtic manager to taste success away from home in the Champions League group stages, matching Neil Lennon's performance from five years ago when his side beat Spartak Moscow 3-2.

"It takes experience and time and it takes belief".

Let no-one question the brutality of the Champions League.
