The prestigious Champions League tournament had some great action in Week 2 including the electric Group C match between Celtic and Manchester City. Josep Guardiola’s 100% winning streak as new manager at Manchester City ended as Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic side led the scoring with City pegging back every time within minutes in an excellent performance all around ending in a 3-3 draw in Glasgow, Scotland on Wednesday.
Moussa Dembele opened the scoring for the outstanding Celtic side at 3 minutes, followed by an own goal by Raheem Sterling at 20 minutes that restored Celtic’s lead. Dembele made it a double with an acrobatic kick at 47 minutes.
Equalizers were scored by Manchester City’s Luis Fernandingo at 11 minutes, Raheem Sterling at 28 minutes, and Manuel Agudo Nolito at 55 minutes as City pegged back after after every Celtic goal providing superb entertainment along with great football for fans for both of the titan clubs.
Celtic demonstrated amazing talent and character, with the downside that they allowed City to score equalizers on three separate occasions unable to hold onto any of their leads and win the match. However they managed to earn a point against an unbeaten Pep Guardiola’s City. Borussia Monchengladbach lost 2-1 to Barcelona, putting Celtic third after Barca in first and Man City in second.

Josep Guardiola, Manchester City boss and Brendan Rodgers, Celtic manager
Scottish champions Celtic’s manager Brendan Rodgers was delighted with his side in spite of losing the lead three times against Manchester City in a 3-3 draw.
"I can't criticise the team, but there's always elements we can be better in. We were brilliant, the pressing and the energy. Every time we went forward we looked like we could score,” said Rodgers. "Apart from the Barcelona game these players have been operating at a high level this season. Now, to do it against that team, it was a magnificent performance. How we defend is what we've been working on. All my teams have played with that intent. We have players that are developing and evolving all the time. Tonight, how they played and performed was top class. That will give them confidence going forward."
