Celtic secured an impressive 3-0 victory over Dundee on Saturday afternoon. Goals from David Turnbull, Kyogo Furuhashi, and Matt O’Riley helped the Hoops maintain their status as league leaders.

Of their Champions League Group E opponents, the Bhoys were one of two sides to taste victory over the weekend, the other being their opponents on Tuesday evening. Feyenoord ran riot on Saturday, defeating SC Heerenveen by a sizeable six goals to one.

The Dutch champions had six different scorers in the win which moved them up to second in the Eredivisie table. The other heavyweights of Group E, Lazio and Atletico Madrid, both failed to win, however.

Lazio made the trip to Turin to take on Juventus but lost 3-1 in the end. That result comes after Maurizio Sarri’s men won 2-1 away at champions Napoli last week, but as of now, that is their solitary competitive win this season so far.

Over in Spain, Atletico too had an away game. Valencia was the destination for them, however, they were undone and defeated 3-0. The visitors had the majority of possession but couldn’t do anything with it, and moved down to seventh in La Liga.

For Group E sides, it was a contrasting weekend. Celtic and Feyenoord both played some terrific football to secure vital wins while Lazio and Atleti were poor in away defeats. Something will give on Tuesday, though, for both sets of teams when they face off against each other.
