Celtic, Sevilla and Basle qualify for Europa League last-32

Leigh Griffiths nets late winner for Celtic against Rosenborg

20/09/2018

Leigh Griffiths made the difference for Celtic in their Europa League opener, coming off the bench to score a late winner against Rosenborg.

Brendan Rodgers?? side laboured for much of the match, spurning the few opportunities that they created. But it wasn??t until the second half introduction of Griffiths from the bench that the Hoops made the breakthrough.

Frustration was building within the home support when Griffiths got on the end of a Dedryck Boyata knockdown from a Scott Brown lofted pass into the box, firing a header into the back of the Rosenborg net.

Red Bull Salzburg scored a late winner in the Red Bull derby against RB Leipzig to go top of the group after the opening round of Group B games, but Rodgers and his players will just be pleased to be off to a winning start and will have some questions to answer after this below-par performance.
