Commentary
  • 90'

    Mabena has a shot from miles out but it is high and wide.

  • 90'

    Three minutes will be added on.

  • 90'

    FULL TIME! 5-0. The final whistle has sounded and Celtic have cruised to victory. It was a sublime performance especially from the attackers. If this is the football on offer Celtic fans are in for a treat this season. Until next time...

  • 86'

    Both teams just seeing out time now as we wait for the final whistle.

  • 81'

    Sub for Celtic - Luthuli comes on for his debut and Mashikinya makes way.

  • 79'

    GOAL! CELTIC! FIKIZOLO! 5-0. Celtic just can't stop scoring as substitute Fikizolo scores. One-on-one with the keeper and finishes neatly.

  • 78'

    Yellow card for Mahashe

  • 77'

    Arrows continue to push for a consolation goal but Celtic are solid at the back.

  • 74'

    Sub for Celtic - Maloisane comes on for the goal-scoring debutant, Tchilimbou.

  • 73'

    Sub for Arrows - Makhubela makes way for Matloga.

  • 71'

    Celtic are toying with Arrows now. Arrows will just want this game to end now and get back home.

  • 67'

    Arrows score! But it is flagged for offside. It is an incorrect decision as Lamola didn't touch the ball. It's just not their day.

  • 63'

    CHANCE! Masuku brilliance once again. He cuts in from the left and backheels to Tchilimbou who hits it first time but Sibanda comes up with great diving save. This could have been 7 or 8 nil. Arrows are being torn apart.

  • 60'

    CHANCE! On the break Fikizolo plays a superb ball to Tchilimbou but he skies his first time shot. Celtic are playing some of the best football seen from them in recent years.

  • 58'

    Sub for Celtic - Fikizolo comes on for Potsane. Very good outing for Potsane today.

  • 56'

    GOAL! CELTIC! MAHASHE! 4-0. Celtic are running riot! Mahashe rises highest at the far post from a corner and bang into the top corner.

  • 55'

    Mabena with a great chance but his shot is blocked by Lunga. That would have been 4-0.

  • 51'

    Mabena has been superb today and has another shot at goal but this time Sibanda saves low to his right.

  • 50'

    Arrows have made their intentions clear early on as they are straight onto to the attack.

  • 46'

    KICK OFF! 3-0. The second half is underway and Celtic look well on their way to three points.

  • 45'

    Mutizwa has another great chance but this time Mabokgwane makes another fantastic save. Arrows are now dominating this match.

  • 45'

    There will be 3 minutes added on.

  • 45'

    GOAL! CELTIC! TCHILIMBOU! 3-0. Another brilliant goal by the hosts. On the counter Potsane plays a role again as he finds Mabena in the box but opposed to shooting he lays it off to Tchilimbou for a debut goal!

  • 45'

    HALF TIME! 3-0. What a half of football by Celtic. Two early goals, both assisted by Potsane. Arrows came back into the game and created chances but Mabokgwane made a few great saves. Late on, against the run of play, Tchilimbou scored his debut goal.

  • 44'

    Mutizwa is almost in as he tries to chip Mabokgwane but easily saved.

  • 42'

    It's not Venter but Sabelo that hits it. It is way to high though.

  • 41'

    Arrows win a free kick just outside the Celtic box. Can they make this position count...Venter steps up

  • 37'

    The pace of the game has slowed down somewhat which has allowed Arrows to get back into the game. Venter looking dangerous down the right.

  • 33'

    Venter cuts in from the right and hits a left-footed shot at goal. It deflects and Mabokgwane makes a superb save to keep Celtic 2-0 up. What a save!

  • 30'

    SUB: Mutizwa comes on for Dube. Mutizwa was last seasons top scorer for Arrows - clearly Komphela is looking to get a goal back before the break.

  • 29'

    Potsane is running the show today. He also has both assists for the two goals.

  • 25'

    Arrows starting to create some chances but Sabelo shoots high after Venter squared a neat pass to him.

  • 24'

    Makhubela has an opportunity but his header is well over the bar. Should really be doing better.

  • 21'

    Some good defence by Tani after Arrows created a half chance. Corner Arrows.

  • 18'

    Celtic continue to push forward in search of a third. Masuku is finding plenty of space between the lines. Arrows will need to make a few adjustments if they hope to compete in this match.

  • 13'

    GOAL! CELTIC! MASUKU! 2-0. Superb by the hosts! Potsane plays Masuku in and he cuts in and scores at the near post. What a cracking start.

  • 8'

    Masuku goes on a good run beating a couple of Arrows defenders but goes down just before he strikes the ball. Massive appeals for a penalty but it is waves away by the ref. Seems he tripped himself up.

  • 5'

    Arrows pushing forward looking for an equaliser but they can't find a way through. Rain has started to fall which will cool things a bit for the players.

  • 1'

    KICK OFF! 0-0. We are underway and Celtic push forward immediately.

  • 1'

    GOAL! CELTIC! MABENA! 1-0. A poor pass in midfield by Arrows and the ball is played through to Mabena. He takes a couple of touches before unleashing a low drive from outside the box and it finds the bottom corner. What a start!
