Celtic draw 1-1, Shakhtar Donetsk: Boyce hopes of Europa League consolation dashed

Celtic ‘s hopes of securing a place in the Europa League knockout stages were dashed after their 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk .

Seeing their side, who dominated the majority of the game in a 1-1 draw with Shakers in Warsaw but failed to take their chances, Celtic fans had reason to hope they could have done better at home. That hope only grew in the 34th minute of a cautious first half, when Sejad Haksabanovic roared down the left and passed to Lil Abada , who had an initial start. The shot was blocked and Georges Jakumakis scored on the follow-up.

Celtic largely contained Miners’ counter-attack threat before half-time, although visiting team’s main threat Mihailo Mudrick trailed on the left shortly after Georges Jakumakis’ opener And one-on-one with Joe Hart. Mudrick tried to dunk the ball off the Celtics goalie, but Hart stood tall and made a brilliant save.

Talking points

The Celtics failed to dominate. Angel Bol is showing promising signs in the Champions League. Celtic were particularly authoritative in the first half, but even taking into account Miners’ second-half counter-attack, the home side created more chances and ended up with 15 shots on target with eight.

Unfortunately, once again, they failed to convert their attacking efforts into a favorable score. It’s been a season of hard lessons in Europe for the Celtics, and this is no exception.

Player of the match

Mihailo Mudrick Mudlik has been admired by some of Europe’s top clubs for his impressive performances in the Champions League this season. It’s not hard to see why.

Even though the Miners found themselves limited in the first half, Mudrick kept threatening to struggle with the Celtics defense. He’s always the most likely to equalise, and would have an assist had it not been for Sikan’s nightmarish error.
