Celtic 2-1 RB Leipzig: Edouard strike earns victory and keeps Europa League knockout hopes alive

Odsonne Edouard tapped in Celtic’s winner just a minute after Leipzig had equalised

Celtic kept their hopes of reaching the Europa League last 32 alive with a dramatic victory over RB Leipzig at Celtic Park.

Knowing defeat could eliminate them with two games to go, Kieran Tierney put the hosts ahead early on.

Leipzig’s Jean-Kevin Augustin equalised with a header on 78 minutes but within 60 seconds Odsonne Edouard struck to give Brendan Rodgers’ men the win.

Celtic sit third in Group B, level with Leipzig, but trail on head-to-head.

The Scottish champions travel to Trondheim to face Rosenborg next on November 29, before finishing at home to Salzburg a fortnight later.

In a frenetic finish, Kevin Kampl struck the bar for the visitors and then blazed over when clean through on goal to ensure the Scottish side secured a vital victory.
