Salzburg Shock For the first time in their history albeit a very short one, Red Bull Leipzig took on their sister club Red Bull Salzburg in the 'Red Bull Derby.' Leipzig, arguably the bigger of the two clubs were favourites for the game yet Salzburg took the 3 points via an 89th-minute winner from Fredrik Gulbrandsen. Munas Dabbur and Amadou Haidara put Salzburg 2-0 up yet Leipzig clawed their way back into the game with Konrad Laimer and Yussuf Poulsen both netting once. Hannes Wolf managed to find Gulbrandsen with just 1 minute to go and he was able to give the Australian Champions victory. British sides start brightly The two Scottish sides Celtic and Rangers both secured good results. Celtic beat Rosenborg 1-0 with Leigh Griffiths scoring late whilst Rangers managed to come from behind twice to draw with Villareal 2-2. Goals courtesy of Scott Arfield and Kyle Lafferty.
