Celtic FC have already climbed one massive hurdle in the 2012-13 Champions League by finishing second in their very tough group and qualifying for the knock-out phase. Their excellent group stage performance was, of course, highlighted by a stunning 2-1 victory over Catalan giants Barcelona at Celtic Park.

Mirko Vucinic opened the scoring with a belter from outside the box in the 20th minute, but shortly before halftime, Alessandro Matri scored the second and he did it without his boot.

As a soccer fan, the only thing worse than seeing your team lose is seeing it happen quickly in the beginning of the match without any chance of reversal. That is what happened when Juventus hosted AS Roma. The Wolves fought back but nothing seem to work out for them today.
Chelsea squandered a 2-0 lead at Stamford Bridge as they began the defence of their Champions League crown with a draw against Italian champions Juventus.
Brazilian Oscar put Roberto Di Matteo's side ahead when his deflected long-range strike deceived Gianluigi Buffon. He then made it 2-0 to the home side inside 35 minutes with a stunning, curling shot which flew into the top corner of the net.
It is fantastic to have the Champions League back, the best football on the planet. And not least to start with some excellent matches! Firstly, Real Madrid's hard-fought 3-2 victory against Manchester City, and secondly, today's match between the defending champions of Chelsea, and the Italian champions of Juventus.
FC Barcelona, Manchester United, Shakhtar Donestk, BATE Borisov, Bayern Munich, and CFR Cluj all won in the UEFA Champions League on September 19, 2012.
Chelsea 2-2 Juventus
An early Oscar brace wasn't enough as Juventus fought back to get a draw. Chelsea started out strong with the 2-0 lead but Juve showed why they are the reigning Serie A champions with a gritty comeback.

This is a red card offense in the sense that he made no attempt to play the ball, or at least aborted one mid-attempt. But Arturo Vidal really just looks like he was trying to hit the opponent with his ass. Or take a seat on his back somehow.
So what if the stars who play 90 minutes every weekend want a little bit of rest while everyone else has the chance?
