Celtic boosted their UEFA Champions League hopes with a superb 3-0 win over Benfica in their Group F encounter at Parkhead.

Kenny Miller was the star of the show with two second half goals and substitute Stephen Pearson's late strike wrapped up a memorable win for the Scottish giants.

The win leaves Celtic in a commanding position to reach the next phase as they now sit second in Group F with six points.

Celtic were superb, and was probably one of the best results from last night's CL games. If Celtic win in Benfica then they are through! :D

What a performance!!

Sno looks like hes gonna be a class act! And What about Maloneys pass through to Miller for his second goal. Superb.

No one can say 'Oh its because Benfica where crap that Celtic where good!' because Benfica werent bad, Celtic where just too good.

Yeah, that's true, but I still feel like Fernando Santos (Benfica's coach) didn't do enough to try to reverse the game, after the 1-0... always afraid, always trying not to suffer goals, closing the midfield as much as he can, defending way near Benfica's area... GOD DAMME!!!!!

Why the hell this guy just tries to get ties when football is played for winning??? Doesn't he understand that it is way more probable to get a tie if you play to win, and way more probable to loose a match if you try to draw it????
