Celtic, Dynamo Kiev strengthen positions

Glasgow Celtic and Dynamo Kiev moved into commanding positions to reach the Champions League group stage after road wins Tuesday night in the first leg of the final round of qualifying.

Kris Commons scored on a volley in the second minute and Georgios Samaras got a goal on a header off a corner kick in the 75th, giving Celtic a 2-0 victory at Sweden’s Helsingborg as the Scottish champions look to reach Europe’s elite club competition for the first time in four years.

Kiev rallied to win 3-1 at Germany’s Borussia Moenchengladbach on goals by Taras Mikhalik in the 28th and Andriy Yarmolenko in the 26th plus an own goal by Luuk de Jong in the 81st. Alexander Ring had put the Ukrainian club ahead in the 13th.
