This summer saw important transfers and structural changes in European soccer clubs that promised a really interesting and unpredictable season. Celtic and CFR Cluj provided soccer fans from all over the world with one of the most interesting Champion League matches so far this week. The Romanians managed to defeat Celtic in a fierce match which ended with a final score of 3-4.  

The first halftime of the match saw only one goal which was scored in the 27th minute by Ciprian Deac. Celtic started the second halftime with more aggressive playing and James Forrest managed to equalize the score in the 51st minute. This was followed by a second goal in the 61st minute scored by Odsonne Edouard, giving Celtic the lead.

But the match was far from over and Billel Omrani managed to equalize the score again with his penalty score in the 74th minute, which was followed by another equalization by Celtic’s Ryan Christie in the 76th minute.

Then, Omrani gave the match a twist scoring a second goal in the 80th minute. This lead to a nerve wrenching continuation of the struggle which was finally over when George Tucudean scored the fourth goal for Cluj and threw Celtic out of the race for the Champions League Title.
