Celtic earned themselves a very good win last night as we beat CFR Cluj 2-0 in the Europa League and, in the process, enacted some revenge.
The Romanians we know well from the Champions League qualifying rounds earlier on this season but it’s all about the group in the Europa League and it seems as though we’re in a better position than them right now.
Revenge has been earned, then, and after a good draw against Rennes in the first group game, I think we can be pleased with how this first third of this stage of the competition proper has gone.
Plenty of our players impressed, too, on what was a soaking wet night at Celtic Park with the Bhoys controlling much of the game and the away side offering very little threat.
Several of our players impressed, too, so let’s take a look at what fans had to say about Mohamed Elyounoussi’s part in the win…

He's been excellent in the second half.

THURSDAY NIGHT AND I LIKE THE WAY YOU MOVE, ELYOUNOUSSI

Very positive night for us. Jullien did everything apart from score, McGregor spraying the passes around, Bolingoli troubled them down the left all night and Elyounoussi was impressive too! No words left to describe Elhamed, love him! 1 point ahead at the top????????

Best performance in a Celtic jersey by a country mile from Mohamed Elyounoussi tonight. ????????

Given his reputation as a luxury player, Elyounoussi has made two or three genuinely outstanding tackles this half alone.

Elyounoussi has come good today. 2-0! Looks like 3 points and some well deserved revenge.
