Celtic lose Benfica match over coin toss

The last time Celtic travelled to Portugal to take on Benfica in the European Cup, the game was decided in the strangest a manners. Celtic took an impressive 3-0 victory with them, but a Eusebio inspired side saw Benfica win the return fixture by the same score. With penalty shoot outs not on the agenda, the Glasgow Celtic players went home losers by calling the wrong toss. Let's look back at that strange and dramatic day, and know full well that tomorrow's game won't be half as dramatic (or will it?)
