Celtic was humiliated by R Madrid who enjoyed victory in her first match in the new Champions League campaign.

After a goalless first half, RMA continued to apply pressure in the second period and were rewarded, with a goal from Vinicius Junior in the 56th minute. RMA looked to have the match under control when they scored again to grab the advantage, thanks to a goal from Luka Modric, 60 minutes in to establish a 2-0. Los Blancos then scored once more and increased their advantage thanks to a goal from Eden Hazard in the 77th minute to make it 3-0.

Substitutions for Celtic included Daizen Maeda, Aaron Mooy, David Turnbull, Kyogo Furuhashi and Sead Haksabanovic for Liel Abada, Matt O’Riley, Reo Hatate, Giorgos Giakoumakis and Jota, respectively. RMA brought on Eden Hazard, Antonio Rudiger, Eduardo Camavinga, Rodrygo and Marco Asensio, to replace Karim Benzema, Eder Militao, Aurelien Tchouameni, Vinicius Junior and Luka Modric.

There were bookings for Daizen Maeda from Celtic. For RMA, Ferland Mendy saw yellow.

In the second round of action in the Champions League Celtic will play against Shakhtar Donetsk away and RMA will play against RB Leipzig at home.
