Gonzalo Higuain split two Celtic defenders and set up Joe Maria

Callejon who scored in the 22nd minute.

Karim Benzema added a goal in the 67th, steering a shot to the

far left corner of the net that beat goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska

on a stretcher after smashing his chin on the shoulder of Real

Madrid’s Nuri Sahin.
