(Video) Sequence of events that led to the confrontation between Celtic’s Mikael Lustig & Neymar last night

The Group C UEFA Champions League encounter between Celtic and Barcelona saw the Catalan giants run out 2-0 winners thanks to a Lionel Messi brace. The game ended on a sour note after Barca forward Neymar and Celtic defender Mikael Lustig got into a heated exchange as the game drew to an end.

Whilst it’s easy to side with either player here, it would be fair to say that both players were to blame for the confrontation. The Brazilian was eventually subbed off to a chorus of boos from the home crowd.

Luis Enrique was quick to play down the incident, calling it “just handbags”. However, a recent clip posted online shows that things could have possibly gone south real fast.
