The game – Celtic were superior in the first stage, with more submissions. On minute 11, Jota fired into the area and bet on a low kick. Denes Dibusz was alert and blocked the attempt with a nice save.
At 23, Myrto Uzuni fired a shot from the edge of the area. Joe Hart saw the ball heading towards the goal and was slow to act, but managed to prevent it from entering. Until the moment before going to the locker rooms, the match continued with some chances created, but none of them had a successful aim.
The second half was also predominantly Celtic, but now with success. On minute 11, in an extraordinary throw by Jota, Kyogo Furuhashi came face to face with the goalkeeper and put the ball in the back of the net.
Five minutes later Celtic was awarded a penalty, but Callum McGregor wasted the penalty. With ten minutes to go, Ferencváros faltered defensively and David Turnbull found it with a tearful goal to extend the advantage and close the score.
