THE BALL – True class annihilates Celtic de Jota (see goals) (Champions League)

Real Madrid kicked off the defense of the European Football Championship title in the 1st round of the 2022/23 Champions League group stage on Tuesday in style, traveling to Glasgow to beat Celtic, by 3- 0, during a meeting of the 1st round of group F played at Celtic Park.

A victory justified by the class of the Merengues against a Celtic which counted in the Portuguese striker Jota one of the figures, and which after McGregor had hit the goal post defended in Real Madrid by the Belgian Courtois (21st), took quietly water for his mill, killing the local club with two goals in five minutes: the Brazilian Vinicius Júnior, served by the Uruguayan Valverde, opened the scoring (0-1) at 56 ‘, and the Croatian Luka Modric extends it to 0-2 in the 60s.

The score was closed in a beautiful collective game by the ‘merengues’, with Kroos clearing Carvajal on the right for this first-class center and the Belgian Eden Hazard – launched into the game by Ancelotti to replace the French Benzema, left injured ( 30′) – going 0-3 at 77′. Jota played 82 minutes, replaced by Haksabanovic in the Scottish team, guided by Australian Ange Postecoglou, leader of the Premier League of his country.

With this result, Real Madrid take the lead in Group F, alongside Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukraine), who beat RB Leipzig 4-1 in the other game of this round in the group: both have three points.
