Feyenoord booked a 2-1 defeat by Glasgow Celtic in their last Champions League Group E match on Wednesday night, making it three losses in a row in European competition.

The decisive goal was scored in injury time, leaving coach Arne Slot describing the evening as “very disappointing”. “If one team deserved to win, then we did,” he told reporters after the match.

The game did not affect Feyenoord’s standing in the group and the Rotterdammers will move down to the Europa League after the winter break.

On Tuesday evening PSV Eindhoven progressed to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time in eight years after a 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal.

On Thursday evening Ajax meet AEK Athens in their final Europa League draw. Neither side can reach the first knockout round and the Amsterdammers must beat the Greek side, currently third in Group B, to move down to the Conference League after the winter break.
