Celtic's bid to win through to the knockout stages of the Champions League will go to their last Group G fixture following a 2-1 defeat to Benfica at the Stadium of Light.
Ola John gave the home side the lead in the seventh minute before Georgios Samaras levelled in the 32nd minute from a Charlie Mulgrew corner.
Defender Ezequiel Garay restored Benfica's lead in the 72nd minute to ultimately, and deservedly, leave both sides on seven points after five games.
