“Bended” Hibernian in the final and Celtic remained at +9


She may have struggled for 82 minutes, but the Celtic found two goals in the final against Hibernian and stayed top of the Scottish league, +9 ahead of second-placed Rangers.

The visitors made it difficult for the Celts and were lucky to open the scoring in the 39th minute with a well-timed penalty shot by Campbell. Thus, the two teams went into the break with 1-0 in favor of Hibernian.

However, in the second half, Angelos Postecoglou’s team reacted, as expected, and managed to turn the game around. In the 52nd minute, Zota from the white bullet brought the match to a tie, for 1-1. In the 82nd minute and after a lot of missed opportunities, the Celts found the long-awaited goal, with Hyun-gyu to redeem his team.
