Matt O’Reilly, Callum McGregor, and Leo Hatate were in charge of the midfield, while Jota, Kyogo Furuhashi, and Daizen Maeda sortied up front. Hyungyu Oh started from the bench.

An additional goal was scored three minutes later. Obileye tried to clear O’Reilly’s cross from the left, but Maeda headed in and took a two-goal lead.
Celtic scored the third goal in extra time in the first half and solidified their victory early.
Near the half-line of the opposing camp, the opposing defense made a clearing mistake, and Furuhashi, who followed, started counterattacking with the ball. After advancing into the penalty box, he shook the right net with a shot with his left foot.
Oh Hyeon-gyu, who joined Celtic on the 25th of last month, made his home debut as a substitute for Furuhashi in the 30th minute of the second half, when the game was already on the upswing.
In a situation where the opponent lost the will to fight, he concentrated on defense and Oh Hyun-gyu continued to attack with his teammates. However, there was not enough time to show something.
In the 45th minute of the second half, my colleague Avada attempted a low cross and Oh Hyun-kyu tried to stretch his foot, but unfortunately it did not reach it with a slight difference, leaving regret. The game ended just like that.
