|Match Pictures | Matches: 1976 - 1977 | 1976-1977 Pictures|
- A large number of British ex-pat Poles noisily support Wisla from the main stand and proudly wave Polish flags.
- Celtic's first Euro tie against Polish opposition.
ReviewCeltic start well with Doyle hitting the post and Wilson hitting the bar before MacDonald scored in 13 minutes after Edvldsson had headed a Doyle corner into his path.
As the half wore on Wisla found their feet and Latchford made a fine save before Edvaldsson was forced into clearing a Kmiecik shot of the line with Latchford beaten.
In 68 minutes Wisla equalised after another Latchford save when Kusto scored with a high curling shot.
The Poles' second goal was a nightmare for Bobby Lennox who was short with a pass back and allowed Wrobel to score easily after walking round Latchford.
Dalglish scored a good late goal with a low shot after Doyle set him up and this saved Celtic's blushes and gave them a bit of hope for the second leg.
Celtic badly missed the experienced pair of Pat Stanton and Joe Craig who were both ineligible to play.
