Shakhtar boss Lucescu: Celtic lucky again

Shakhtar must now hope they win at home to Benfica on their last outing and that Milan beat Celtic, as the Ukrainians, having won their home game against Strachan's side 2-0 on Matchday 1, would touch off the Glasgow side on the head-to-head results, the first criterion for separation in the event of a tie on points.

"I hope Milan play a proper game," said Lucescu, hinting that the Italians, already qualified with 10 points, may not take the event seriously. "But I am very upset at tonight's result, because Celtic are a very lucky team. We played better and deserved to win the match.

"For 43 minutes tonight, Celtic had not a shot at goal and after the equaliser they had only two shots on goal and scored with one. Yes, we made a mistake at the winning goal, because some of our players thought the match was over. But Celtic could only have scored through us making a mistake."
