  1. Post update

    So, well done to Celtic. They and Dinamo Zagreb put on a good display in Glasgow tonight. We'll be back on Friday night with coverage of Kilmarnock's game against Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership. All the best.

  2. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    "We have a good chance now [of reaching his target of 10 points in Group D]. We are looking forward now to playing Astra. Craig Gordon is a very good goalkeeper. He is very calm. I am very happy. Europe is very exciting to play in."

  3. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    "It was an important game. We wanted to get control of the group. When you see the second half they had the better chances but in the first half we had the better chances but it was even with the ball. In the second half we got tired. We couldn't keep up the pressure. I'm very pleased with the team spirit but we need better passing. Craig was unbelievable. He made vital saves."

  4. Post update

    We should hear from the Celtic manager Ronny Deila any moment.

  5. Post update

    BBC Scotland football pundit Murdo MacLeod

    "They [Dinamo Zagreb] were great to watch - their energy, their touch, it was just their finishing. You felt they were a good side. It's a great three points and a great European victory."

  6. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Chick Young

    "I loved the way Dinamo Zagreb, as soon as they got a goalkick, just started the play right away. I thought it was a great football match."

    Andrew, Richhill: "Great win for Celtic tonight, 4 points from the first 2 games is a massive step towards qualification for the knockout stages."

  8. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Tom English

    "Three absolutely critical points for Celtic. I can't believe there was only one goal in this match,. There must have been 12 or 13 really decent chances. Craig Gordon has got them four points with his saves in both matches [in Group D so far]. When you've got a brilliant goalkeeper, is it fair to say you were lucky? I think Celtic will say they got away with that one. There was a great atmosphere. It was a really good game and the result was in doubt until the end. Some Europa League games can be a bit flat but there was a real edge to this match."

  9. Post update

    Full time in the other Group D match: Astra Giurgiu 1-2 SV Red Bull Salzburg. That means the Austrians and Celtic both have four points, while Dinamo Zagreb remain on three, with Astra yet to get off the mark. It's a double -header against the Romanians next for Ronny Deila's side.

  10. FULL-TIME

    Celtic 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb

  11. Post update

    Clever play by Leigh Griffiths as Celtic break down the right and, rather than go for goal and risk losing possession, he wins a corner but slowing the play right do-o-own.

  12. Post update

    Bearded, pony-tailed Jo Inge Berget has replaced Celtic team-mate Aleksandar Tonev for these last few minutes.

  13. Post update

    We're into the first of three minutes of added time.

  14. Post update

    Former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner

    "Celtic have just got to get hold of the ball somehow. [Leigh] Griffiths has got to be thinking how he can take the ball up to the other end of the pitch."

  15. Post update

    Two minutes to go.

  16. YELLOW CARD

    Jason Denayer brings down Henriquez on the edge of the box out on the left - and is booked - but Celtic goalie Craig Gordon plucks the resultant cross into the box from Marcelo Brozovic like a maiden aunt picking apples in her orchard.

  17. Post update

    El Arbi Hillel Soudani gets into an advanced position for the Croatians and hits a left-foot shot at goal but Craig Gordon smothers it. A minute later the Algerian spins 10 yards out but his shot is wayward. The Croatians will feel they deserve a point but they just cannot find a way past the home keeper.

  18. Post update

    Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal plays a one-two at the edge of the box and finds himself in on goal, but under pressure and unable to get a shot away.

  19. Post update

    Less than 15 minutes to go. I'm amazed this has stayed 1-0! Here comes Leigh Griffiths as a sub for Wakaso Mubarak. He could find space as Dinamo Zagreb push for a leveller. Mind you, they've been attacking for the whole match.

  20. YELLOW CARD

    Leonardo Sigali goes into the referee's book for a sliding challenge on Anthony Stokes that was so late it attracted library fines.

  21. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "Celtic replacing their attacking midfielder with the much more defensively-minded Beram Kayal tells you everything you need to know about how this match is going right now."

  22. Post update

    Sportsound commentator Liam McLeod informs listeners that Dinamo Zagreb played in the Champions League in two of the last three seasons but didn't win a group game.

  23. Post update

    Celtic's Anthony Stokes takes on Marcelo Brozovic and Josip Pivaric at Celtic Park.

    Celtic's Anthony Stokes takes on Marcelo Brozovic and Josip Pivaric at Celtic Park.

  24. Post update

    Craig Gordon is at full stretch out to his right to turn away a drive by Marcelo Brozovic for a corner. Celtic were ripped apart there. Ronny Deila brings Beram Kayal on to replace Kris Commons.

  25. Post update

    Keeper Craig Gordon is very quickly off his line to gather a through ball down the inside left channel. He's had a good game.

  26. Post update

    Pinto heads the ball out to concede a corner for Dinamo, and striker Anthony Stokes hits it disappointingly low and wayward.

  27. Post update

    Aleksandar Tonev and Wakaso Mubarak have been very quiet for Celtic. Ronny Deila will want them to get involved far more to relieve pressure on the defence.

  28. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "Celtic fans getting increasingly anxious as Dinamo dominate at the start of the second half. Not sure Craig Gordon and company can keep them at bay for another 30 minutes."

  29. Post update

    The Chilean Angelo Henriquez, on loan from Manchester United, comes on for Duj Cop. It's a gift for the headline writers if he scores.

  30. Post update

    The Croatians look the more dangerous side at the minute. Arijan Ademi heads over the bar as they crank up the pressure.

  31. Post update

    Eduardo has had three superb cracks at goal this evening - the most recent superbly saved by Craig Gordon after three Celtic defenders had gone out to the left back position to close down Soudani, who crossed for the unmarked Portuguese.

  32. Post update

    Scott Brown loses possession in midfield and Dinamo Zagreb attack in numbers and at pace. They work the ball from right to left but when a cutback would have created a better angle for a shot at goal, the ball is played straight to a Celtic defender.

  33. Post update

    I'm trying to figure out if that Dinamo Zagreb strip is black or a very dark blue. I think it's the latter. Very smart, in any case.

  34. Post update

    Celtic midfielder Kris Commons dinks a ball through Stefan Johansen who chests the ball forward and does to retain possession under pressure, but just as he enters the penalty box his moment of glory is thwarted by Leonardo Sigali.

  35. KICK-OFF

    Celtic begin the second half.

  36. Post update

    As things stand in Group D, Celtic and Red Bull Salzburg top the group on four points, while Dinamo Zagreb have three, with Astra Giurgiu still to break their duck. Ah, but we still have 45 minutes to go... And here come the teams for the second half.

  37. Post update

    BBC Scotland football pundit Murdo MacLeod

    "I think it's a game where Celtic need a second goal just to be comfortable. But this Dinamo side want to get forward. Eduardo's strikes, the one that hit the crossbar and the volley, were terrific."

  38. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Tom English

    "We're getting a lot of excitement here. It was a fantastic finish by Commons. I'm really surprised it's only 1-0. Celtic could have had two, Dinamo could have had three. Eduardo looks a real threat. He's firing in from all directions, this guy."

  39. HALF-TIME

    Celtic 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb

  40. Post update

    SV Red Bull Salzburg are now 2-1 ahead against Astra Giurgiu thanks to a goal from Jonathan Soriano.

  41. Post update

    Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk stings the palms of Dinamo Zagreb keeper Eduardo with a shot from outside the box and within 20 seconds Kris Commons weaves his way through the Croatians' defence but his slipped ball into the box for Anthony Stokes is released with his team-mate offside.

  42. Text us on 80295

    Jenni: "If you want to get out of the group stages in Europe you have to win your home matches. It's a tried and tested theory, a win tonight against Dinamo Zagreb is a must for Celtic."

  43. Post update

    Kevin Kampl has drawn the visitors level in Romania. In the other Group D tie, it's 1-1 between Astra Giurgiu and SV Red Bull Salzburg.

  44. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "This is a thoroughly engrossing match, with both sides committed to attack and playing the game at a high tempo. Wilson Eduardo has been so unlucky not to score as Dinamo Zagreb begin to turn the screw on the Celtic backline."

  45. GREAT SAVE!

    Oh, boy! I think we could do with a "great shot/great save" graphic. Eduardo directs a cracking angled volley at the Celtic goal from 14 yards but Craig Gordon makes a terrific save to keep his team in front.

  46. Post update

    Dinamo Zagreb flash two shots just wide of the target, first through Pinto from out on the right, then from Wilson Eduardo from 20 yards. At the other end, Aleksandar Tonev makes sure Eduardo doesn't have too much time to think about that horror pass a moment ago as he tests him from long range with a low shot but the keeper makes a comfortable save.

  47. Post update

    Josip Simunic passes the ball back to Eduardo in the Zagreb goal, who shimmies past Anthony Stokes in the six-yard box then, inexplicably, hits the ball straight to Kris Commons with the outside of his boot. The Celtic goalscorer must have been taken aback at the sudden generosity as he messes up a simple pass across goal to Stokes and a golden chance is gone.

  48. YELLOW CARD

    Domagoj Antolic stretches to reach the ball in midfield but is way off the pace and takes Kris Commons down instead. A straightforward booking.

  49. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "Celtic are playing well, without really threatening Eduardo's goal since Kris Commons' strike, but that Wilson Eduardo thunderbolt off the bar shows they probably need at least another goal to even begin to think about victory."

  50. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Eduardo makes a dash towards the Celtic box and before a green and white shirt can close him down he positively hammers a shot off the crossbar, with Craig Gordon at full stretch.

  51. Post update

    There's a really good pace to the game. More goals to come, you imagine. It may not be the Champions League but both sides are showing bags of appetite for the encounter.

  52. Post update

    Good battling play there by Scott Brown in midfield but his winning tackle and foray forward ends when Kris Commons is robbed of possession.

  54. Post update

    In Group D's other match Takayuki Seto is on target to give Astra Giurgiu a 1-0 lead against SV Red Bull Salzburg.

  56. Post update

    Wilson Eduardo has a peach of chance to level as he leaps unmarked between Efe Ambrose and Jason Denayer and heads over the bar. That's a warning to Celtic, surely.

  57. Post update

    Anthony Stokes is late with a challenge, allowing Dinamo Zagreb to build an attack, but it fizzles out and Celtic goalie Craig Gordon launches a long kick-out.

  58. Post update

    Celtic legend Billy McNeill

    Celtic favourite Billy McNeill is watching the game tonight. Doubtless, he'll have enjoyed that opening goal by Kris Commons.

  59. Post update

    The hugely experienced Josip Simunic is in the visitors' line-up tonight. He has won 103 caps for Croatia and, you may recall, was the player shown three yellow cards by English referee Graham Poll at a 2006 World Cup game.

  60. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "What a brilliant goal that is from Celtic and - as so often is the case - Kris Commons is the key contributor. His dummy on the edge of the box and understanding with Anthony Stokes were sublime and his finish low past the keeper unstoppable."

  61. Post update

    Aleksandar Tonev tries to make it a quick double for Celtic with a long-range hit with his left boot but it doesn't trouble Eduardo Carvalho in the Zagreb goal.

  62. GOAL

    Celtic 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb (Commons)

    Well, what a start for Celtic. Emilio Izaguirre cuts in from the left and plays a low ball to the outside of the box and it's dummied by Kris Commons. It rolls to Anthony Stokes who hits a first-time pass with the outside of his boot to Commons who smacks a left-foot shot into the goal. A beauty of a goal.

  63. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "Kick-off is upon us, with the stadium only about half-full, though that's still a pretty healthy 30,000-ish, but it does hammer home the fact that for the first time in several years, Glasgow is not hosting Champions League football. Let's see what type of game these two champions can produce in the second tier of European competition."

  64. Post update

    It's a fast-paced opening from Celtic on what looks like an excellent playing surface.

  65. KICK-OFF

    The Croatians get the match under way in Glasgow's east end.

  66. Post update

    Celtic will play a 4-2-3-1 formation this evening, with Anthony Stokes leading the line. Dinamo Zagreb will play their preferred 4-3-3 attacking formation.

  67. Post update

    OK, here come the teams. Celtic are in their traditional green and white hoops, Dinamo Zagreb are in black, and the referees are wearing an outfit most likely fashioned from caravan soft furnishing.

  68. Post update

    BBC Scotland football pundit Chick Young

    "We've got about 28,000-30,000 here tonight. I think the club have made a good effort. Three home games for £60 is good. It's not as intimidating as it usually is. It underlines that Celtic have failed to get into the Champions League. It's going to be close tonight. They have to progress from the group."

  69. Post update

    BBC Scotland football pundit Murdo MacLeod

    "[Kris] Commons and [Anthony] Stokes can work very well together but you've got to make sure they get enough of the ball."

  70. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "Celtic's Croatian opponents have been champions for the last nine seasons, which in itself suggests they're not a bad side. Angelo Henriquez - on loan from Manchester United - is on the bench but El Arabi Hilal Soudani, who scored a hat-trick in their first group match against the Romanians of Astra, starts on the right of a three-pronged attack."

  71. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "The good news for Celtic is that Kris Commons and Jason Denayer have recovered from injury for tonight's match and take their place in Ronny Deila's starting XI. The bad news is that Callum McGregor - one of their most dangerous players so far this season - is out altogether. He's replaced by Aleksandar Tonev. John Guidetti - who's ineligible - and the young defender Eoghan O'Connell are the other players to drop out."

  72. Post update

    Here's what Celtic captain Scott Brown had to say yesterday about tonight's game and the Europa League in general: "Obviously we want to go as far as possible. Our aim is to try to get out of the group and tomorrow is hopefully going to be one step closer to it.

    "This group is going to be hard, it's going to be tough for us, but I think we've got the players in the dressing room that can definitely do it.

    "We've seen the video of them and they look a strong team but we've got great players as well and we are really looking forward to it."

  73. Post update

    There's quarter of an hour to go until kick-off.

  74. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

    "There are suggestions the top tier at Celtic Park will remain closed this evening. It'll be interesting to see how that affects the atmosphere here because Celtic are so used to having the backing of a raucous home support on European nights. Will the Europa League ignite the passions in the way the Champions League has done in recent times? We shall see."

  75. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila is targeting 10 points in this group. That's what he reckons it will take to reach the knockout stages. Celtic have failed to win any of their last five European matches this season and were effectively knocked out of the Champions League qualifiers twice as a 6-1 aggregate defeat by Legia Warsaw was overturned by Uefa due to an administrative error by the Polish club. The Scottish champions eventually exited at the play-off stage to Slovenian side Maribor, then there was the draw in Austria a couple of weeks ago.

  76. Post update

    Ronny Deila has made three changes to his Celtic side. Attacking midfielder Kris Commons, defender Jason Denayer and winger Aleksandar Tonev are all restored to the starting line-up for the visit of the Croatians.

    Striker John Guidetti again misses out as he was not registered in time for the group stages of the competition and defender Eoghan O'Connell and midfielder Callum McGregor also drop out.
