Scott Brown’s UCL passing stats are phenomenal

Celtic have thoroughly impressed in the Champions League this season against mighty opponents and one Hoops man is standing head and shoulders above the rest of the British-based players.

Scott Brown was once again putting in a pinpoint passing performance in last night’s draw with Borussia Monchengladbach, with the 31-year-old completing 96% of his passes.

Those numbers continue the veteran’s fine numbers in the Champions League this season, with Brown’s lowest pass-completion in the competition this season standing at an impressive 91% in the 3-3 draw with Manchester City.

Brown’s numbers make him the best British-based player in this area, ahead of the likes of Mesut Ozil and Kevin De Bruyne, and his performances have been crucial to Celtic’s impressive performances in the competition.

Celtic’s draw with Gladbach kept their Champions League hopes alive, mathematically, but they would require wins in the final matches against Manchester City and Barcelona to advance to the knock-out stages, both of which seem unlikely.

Sat two points behind Gladbach, Celtic need to better the German side’s results against the other two opponents in the group if they are to seal a third-place spot that would see them go through to the knock-out rounds of the Europa League.
