    Struggling Celtic sunk by Berg

    Celtic boss Tony Mowbray's pre-match words came back to haunt him as Marcus Berg handed Hamburg a 1-0 victory at Parkhead. More

  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Celtic
    • Hamburger SV
    • 93' FULL TIME. Celtic 0-1 Hamburg. Quality told in the end despite a spirited effort from the hosts.
    • 91' We're into injury time but it's Hamburg on the ball...
    • 89' Tesche comes on for Pitroipa...
    • 87' BIG MISS! Caldwell has a free header at the back post but once again he cannot climb high enough to head the ball down...
    • 86' PENALTY SHOUT! Caldwell goes down at a set piece but the ref waves away the protests...
    • 83' Pitroipa so nearly weaves his way past the Celtic defence again, Mowbray's men are beginning to look a defeated outfit...
    • 80' GREAT SAVE! McCourt's first touch sees him skip inside Trochowski and force a superb finger-tip save from Rost...
    • 77' Trochowski on for Jansen - this Trochowski is a decent player...
    • 76' Maloney off for McGinn, Brown off for McCourt
    • 75' Samaras' crossfield ball finds McGeady in acres, he centres for Brown but the midfielder can't keep his balance as Celtic Park lets out a collective groan...
    • 73' Robson fires wide as Celtic enjoy more attacking possession but look like doing nothing with it...
    • 70' Celtic are a shambles! For the umpteenth time tonight N'guemo finds a blue shirt, Pitroipa and Berg break and only Pitroipa's hesitation prevents another Hamburg goal...
    • 68' CHANCE! Samaras just cannot climb high enough as he beats Rost to Maloney's corner - the ball looping over...
    • 67' Glenn Loovens is coming on for Celtic - gamechanger...
    • 63' GOAL! Celtic 0-1 Hamburg! It's the £10m man Berg who smashes the ball into the bottom corner after Ze Roberto's perfect assists...where's Scott McDonald now you wonder...
    • 62' Scott McDonald taken off for Samaras! Interesting decision...
    • 61' Corner to Celtic as Brown so nearly creates a shooting chance for himself inside the area...
    • 60' Good work by N'guemo, who pulls out a Zizu-like dragback to set up a shooting chance, but the Celtic man is about as deadly as Steffan Freund in front of goal...
    • 58' Hamburg after growing into this...Elia and Pitroipa are beginning to see more ball...
    • 54' SO CLOSE! Maloney twists and turns and slides Wilson in behind the full back, Wilson centres but his cross is cut out right as McDonald waits to pounce from two yards...
    • 51' HIT THE BAR! Pitroipa dances past two Celtic defenders, cuts the ball back to the penalty spot, but Elia's strike cannons off the crossbar!...
    • 49' AWFUL HIT! McDonald's cross causes problems for the Hamburg defence, Brown tees up McGeady who strangely chooses to hit it left-footed when it was crying out for a right foot curler...
    • 47' Great start Celtic as McGeady and then Naylor deliver wicked balls across goal that Hamburg struggle to deal with...
    • 46' Second half underway...
    • 46' HALF TIME. 0-0. Total control by Celtic but no goal to show for it...
    • 44' WHAT A MISS! N'Guemo's header finds Maloney six yards out, all by himself, volleying as the ball drops over his shoulder but he gets it all wrong. Then, from the resulting corner, McDonald spins excellently but fires over...
    • 42' DIVE! McGeady runs at Rozenhal and as soon as the defender comes with a yard of the winger McGeady hits the deck. Shocking by the Celtic man...
    • 39' CLOSE! Dennis Aogo gets the nod ahead of Ze Roberto at the set piece so you know he must be good, and he drifts a curler just over with Boruc well beaten...
    • 37' Poor passes by N'guemo and Wilson end an extended period of pressure from Celtic. They're winning on points, but still there are very few chances in this game and certainly no sing of a knock-out blow. Dangerous free kick dead central for Hamburg...
    • 36' Surprising to see a number of empty seats at Celtic Park...
    • 33' CHANCE! Berg looks nowhere near the £10m man as he heads over when relatively unchallenged at the corner...
    • 31' McManus booked for an unintended foul on Pitroipa, who was in on goal to be fair to the referee. Dangerous free kick here...
    • 30' CHANCE! Pitroipa and Jansen both miss glorious chances from the left side of the Celtic box after good work from Ze Roberto and Jarolim...
    • 28' GOOD STUFF! Celtic break from deep via Barry Robson, the ball eventually finds Brown 25 yards out and his zipper of a shot needs to be carefully handled by Frank Rost in the Hamburg goal...
    • 26' Stray pass by Wilson ruins a good Celtic counter, I've seen that guy a few times and really do not rate him...
    • 24' Plenty of free kicks arriving for The Bhoys right now...
    • 21' Poor communication between Maloney and McDonald as the Australian attempts to run in behind the defence, only to see Maloney has rolled the ball behind him...
    • 19' Hamburg are trying to draw the sting out of this game...
    • 17' Nice work by McGeady opens the chance to let fly from 25 yards but Rozenhal gets his chest in the way - winding himself in the process...
    • 14' ANOTHER MISS! This time from Hamburg! Pitroipa gets to the byline, cuts back for Marcus Berg but the Swede drags the ball across goal when he really should have scored...(Samaras would have buried it)
    • 13' WHAT A MISS! Caldwell flicks on the corner and Brown is in acres at the back post. He lines up the half volley but slices it horribly wide!...
    • 12' N'guemo's passing accuracy is about as high as Andriy Voronin's goal ratio for Liverpool. Still the ball goes back and forth like a tennis match here, we await our first chance but Celtic have a corner...
    • 9' First chance for McGeady to run at his marker and, even though the cross is blocked, it looks like he has the beating of Demel...
    • 7' This has started like an Old Firm derby! Tackles, fouls, 100 miles per hour, all we need now is a red card...
    • 5' Some robust challenges early doors from Celtic, this one from Barry Robson, who incidentally has never been seen in the same room as David Moyes...
    • 2' First chance for Hamburg as N'guemo's sloppy pass allows Pitroipa to shoot from 25 yards. Interestingly, Scott Brown is the man chosen to support McDonald up front for Celtic...
    • 1' We are underway. The litmus test for Tony Mowbray begins...
    • - John L has expressed his frustration at Mowbray's starting XI. There are two keys to this match for me: 1) Can Celtic shackle Ze Roberto? 2) Can Scott McDonald hold the ball up against Mexes and co. I fear the answer to both is no...
    • - This is undoubtedly one of those unforgettable atmospheres at Celtic Park. Every fan knows how desperate the club is for victory tonight, and desperation breeds the type of passion in Celtic fans that very few other clubs can rival...
    • - Off topic, Everton are taking a fearful hammering in Benfica to rival Rangers' effort! The Blues are now 5-0 down in Portugal...
    • - Craig H has given his considered appraisal of tonight's game and is going 3-1 to Hamburg. I have to say, I'll be surprised if it's the green-and-white hoops who are celebrating at the full time whistle...
    • - Celtic really have it all to do in Group C, they're currently bottom and anything less than a victory tonight surely ends their campaign...
    • - So a one-man strike force for Celtic...good tactics by Mowbray or is he handing Hamburg the initiative?
    • - The teams are in from Celtic Park and there is a recall for Landry N'guemo...
    • - Celtic: Boruc, Naylor, McManus. Caldwell, N'guemo, McDonald, Brown, Wilson, Maloney, Robson, McGeady. SUBS: Zaluska, Hinkel, Samaras, McGinn, McCourt, Loovens, Killen
    • - Hamburg: Rost, Rozenhal, Mathijsen, Aogo, Jansen, Ze Roberto, Elia, Jarolim, Berg, Demel, Pitroipa. SUBS: Hesl, Tesche, Trochowski, Rincon, Tavares, Schulz, Tunay Torun
    • - Welcome to this evening's live minute-by-minute commentary from Celtic v Hamburg. It's no mistakes time for The Bhoys...
