Barcelona made sure of first place in their group after a crushing 6-1 victory over Celtic on Wednesday! Tata Martino's side needed a point to be sure of first place, and Piqué gave them the lead midway through the first half after Forster saved a deflected shot from Alexis. Neymar set up Pedro for a second a few minutes later after Piqué had won the ball in midfield, and the Brazilian striker helped himself to a hat-trick in a twelve minute period either side of the break, his first goal in the competition coming after Montoya latched on to an Alexis lofted pass to slide the ball across the front of the goal. Two minutes in to the second half Neymar finished off a quick passing move with a shot wide of the visiting keeper, and ten minutes after that he rolled the ball through the legs of Ambrose before firing in a shot which Mathews deflected in to his own net. Substitute Tello got the sixth with a deflected shot after picking up an assist from Adriano, and Samaras headed a late consolation for the visitors near the end.
