The full-time whistle goes, sealing Real Madrid’s passage into the next round as winners of Group F! Any Celtic resistance following a defiant first-half performance soon gave way to the dominance of Los Blancos, who really turned on the style in that second half. Asensio, Vinicius and Valverde all finished off flourishing attacking moves within 10 minutes of each other, taking the game far beyond Celtic’s limited reach. Jota did pull one back with a sublime free-kick, but that silver lining won’t hide the fact that Celtic were truly outclassed in this one, and crash out of Europe with their tails between their legs. Real do quite the opposite though, as the reigning European champions march onto the next stage, in full confidence of repeating last season’s triumph.

There wasn’t one stand-out player for Real, with the vast majority of their front six proving to be near-unstoppable, and Asensio was especially sublime on the right flank. He scored Real’s third, and managed two shots on target from five attempts. He also played five key passes, attempted six crosses, and won all his duels, as well as winning the ball four times, via three interceptions. Ascending.

A 5-1 victory sees Real finish the group stage in comfortable fashion, winning Group F by a point despite Leipzig’s win over Shakhtar. They’ll be the only representatives from La Liga in the Champions League knockout stages, with Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla all having crashed out. Celtic weren’t advancing to any stage of any competition, and finish rock-bottom of the group, with their two points a better return than only Viktoria Plzen and Glasgow rivals Rangers.
