Ola John: Celebrating Benfica's opener against Celtic

The Portuguese outfit are now level on points with the Hoops in UEFA Champions League Group G after their 2-1 win over the Scottish champions at the Stadium of Light and they have the better head-to-head record.

However, Celtic appear to have the easier final game at home to Spartak Moscow when they will need to better Benfica's result in Spain.

Jesus said: "It was a great win for us. We didn't deserve to be drawing at half-time, they scored with a set-piece as we thought they might. But we played very well.

"Now we are playing on the biggest stage in the world against the biggest team in the world.

"But we have shown we are more of a team than Celtic and they beat Barcelona so nothing is impossible. If we have a bit of luck we can do it."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
