Half-Time Report: Three goals scored as Celtic lead Fenerbahce

Celtic lead Fenerbahce 2-1 at half time in their Europa League Group A clash at Celtic Park, with Leigh Griffiths and Kris Commons scoring for the Hoops.

Celtic have taken a 2-1 lead against Fenerbahce in their Europa League Group A clash at Celtic Park, with Leigh Griffiths and Kris Commons bagging the goals in the first half for the Hoops.

The hosts were first to threaten when, just three minutes in, Mikael Lustig crossed from the right and James Forrest's effort flew just wide of the bar.

Fenerbahce countered in the 10th minute through Ozan Tufan, who sent an incisive cross into the Hoops' box that had to be scrambled to safety for a corner, which came to nothing.

Despite this, Celtic continued to push forward and went on to open the scoring in the 28th minute, as a Commons corner fell to Griffiths, who bundled home after several attempts.

Just four minutes later Ronny Deila's charges doubled their lead, with Commons edging into space inside the box, latching on to a Forrest ball and slamming a shot into the top left corner.

Fenerbahce, however, pulled a goal back on the stroke of half time, courtesy of Fernandao making the most of an Efe Ambrose error in the Celtic backline to rifle home from the edge of the box.
