Hoops crash to Braga

28 July 2010 10:31
Celtic are on the brink of crashing out of this season's Champions League after gifting Braga a 3-0 win in their third qualifying round first leg. A controversial first-half penalty from Alan - awarded after Ki Sung-Yeung was adjudged to have handled - a debut goal from Uwa Elderson Echiejile, and a stunning free-kick from substitute Matheus ensured the Hoops' miserable European away record continued under Neil Lennon. Celtic failed to muster a single shot on target in sweltering conditions at the AXA Stadium, with their opponents comfortably holding sway in what was both sides' first competitive match of the season.
