The Kings definitely dominated the game from the start, but the Shamrocks looked more dangerous in their attacks. Courtois had to intervene decisively twice in the first 20 minutes, and on 21′ McGregor shot ominously from 20 metres, the Belgian remained motionless but the ball hit the side post.
The situation for the tournament champion took a turn for the worse when Benzema limped off with a right knee injury. In the 30th minute, he was replaced by Eden Hazard and went straight to the dressing room for an examination.
CELTIC: Hart, Taylor, Jens, Gyakumakis, Abada, Hota, Carter-Vickers, O’Reilly, Hatate, McGregor, Juranovic
REAL M: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Chuameni, Kroos, Modric, Valverde, Vinicius, Benzema
