Considering that Manchester City entered Wednesday's Champions League clash vs. Celtic as winners of all 10 of its matches across all competitions since Pep Guardiola took over, most figured it'd be a cakewalk for the Premier League leader against the Scottish power, but it has proven to be anything but that.

Moussa Dembele's second goal–an acrobatic, contorted volley–gave Celtic its third lead of the game a minute into the second half at Celtic Park, but Nolito leveled it up minutes later, and the two sides wound up settling for a point apiece after a 3-3 goalfest in Glasgow.

Dembele scored early in the first half, too, giving Celtic a lead three minutes in. Fernandinho equalized soon after in the 11th minute, but Kieran Tierney forced an own goal off Raheem Sterling to again put the Bhoys in front. 

Sterling made amends with a fantastic finish of his own, only for Dembele to restore the Celtic edge. Celtic couldn't make it stand up, though, with Nolito delivering to erase a third one-goal advantage.
