Manchester City was expected to take care of business and continue its perfect season against Scottish champion Celtic, but Moussa Dembele is doing his best to help spring an upset.

The 20-year-old attacker scored in the third minute of the contest to give Celtic an early edge. City came back to equalize, before Celtic again took the lead, though once more Pep Guardiola’s side rallied. 

With the score tied 2-2 at the start of the second half, Dembele took a low cross that left him alone in front of goal, but his back toward the net. He managed to hit it on the volley, back still facing goal, past Claudio Bravo to reclaim the lead for Celtic.

But like the other two Celtic advantages, this one would not last either. Nolito scored eight minutes later to level the proceedings once more.
