Quickfire Silva double gives RB Leipzig 3-1 win over Celtic

RB Leipzig secured their first Champions League points of the season after first-half goals from Andre Silva and Christopher Nkunku helped Leipzig beat Celtic 3-1 at home.

Nkunku sprinted twice – his first attempt was ruled offside after a VAR check but the Frenchman corrected in the 27th minute, poking the ball past advancing Joe Hart and from a tight angle Shoot home.

Celtic enjoyed a period of pressure after the goal was disallowed, but were unable to take the lead after being overtaken on the counter-attack, with Furuhashi nearly breaking the deadlock twice. The visitors got off to a perfect start to the second half, two minutes later when Furuhashi blocked Leipzig ‘s three defenders before passing the ball to Jota , who calmly finished the scoring.

In the 77th minute, after Celtic were cleared by Nkunku’s long diagonal pass, Silva calmly shot again past Hart, with Mohamed Simakan volleying the Portuguese on the cushion forward. Leipzig are third in Group F with 3 points, and Celtic are bottom with 1 point. The teams will meet again in Glasgow on Tuesday .
