GLASGOW -- Barcelona capitalized on the needless sending-off of Celtic captain Scott Brown to overcome the plucky Scottish champions 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday, with Cesc Fabregas grabbing a 75th-minute winner. Ilkay Gundogan Germany Jersey . Missing the injured Lionel Messi, Barca produced a flat performance at a ground where it memorably lost in last years group stage. The game turned on the straight red card given to Brown in the 59th minute for kicking out at Neymar, moments after fouling the Brazil forward. Celtics overworked defence failed to hold out for the final half hour as Fabregas headed a cross by substitute Alexis Sanchez into the corner, earning the Spanish giants a second straight victory in Group H, having already beaten Ajax 4-0. "It changed the game," Celtic manager Neil Lennon said of Browns dismissal. "Its hard enough playing against Barcelona with 11 men, never mind 10 men." Celtic lost its first group match, 2-0 at AC Milan, and already has an uphill battle to reach the knockout stage. Barcas win will help partially erase the memory of last seasons shock 2-1 defeat at Celtic Park but the result was in the balance before Browns red card, despite the wealth of possession the visitors enjoyed as usual. At first glance, the decision seemed harsh, with Celtic having men behind the ball when Neymar was hauled down in full flight. But replays showed Brown then flicked his foot out at the Brazilian, and the midfielder didnt appear to complain too strongly when French referee Stephane Lannoy brandished the card as Neymar rolled around on the ground. Lennon was furious on the touchline at the time of the incident -- and again afterwards. "Its a physical game and I dont think Neymar does himself any favours the way he behaves sometimes," said Lennon. In earlier television interviews, Lennon had said that "Neymar has a reputation in the game." Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said he didnt see the incident in question, saying through a translator: "I dont want to give an opinion on something I couldnt see well." From being a tight contest, Barca could finally escape the shackles with a man advantage and Sanchez delivered the most incisive piece of football of the whole match -- and Fabregas, playing as the central striker in Messis absence, did the rest. "This match has been the most demanding we have had to play so far (this season)," said Martino, whose team have started the season with a club-record seven straight wins in La Liga and the crushing victory over Ajax. Barca stars Xavi Hernandez and Gerard Pique are among the worlds star players to have talked about the spine-tingling atmosphere at Celtic on big European nights. "No words to describe the atmosphere at Celtic Park," Pique tweeted as he left the stadium last year. And the visitors couldnt have failed to be impressed by the crowds rousing rendition of "Youll Never Walk Alone" when both sets of players were in tunnel, or the huge roar as Celtic emerged from an on-field team huddle for the kickoff. Every kick, tackle and attempted break by Celtic was received with an enormous din -- although it took the home side 1 minute 44 seconds to touch the ball for the first time as Barcelona slipped quickly into its passing groove. Adopting the blueprint of most of the smaller teams playing Barca nowadays, Celtic had every man behind ball bar its lone striker, Georgios Samaras, when defending. It meant the visitors had all the possession -- 72 per cent in the first half -- but few clear sights at Fraser Forsters goal. The dynamic presence of Messi -- out with a right thigh injury -- was sorely missed, with Barca sometimes even ditching its tiki-taka passing and resorting to sending diagonal cross-field passes in behind Celtics full backs to launch attacks. Indeed, Neymars clipped half-volley that flashed past the post from Dani Alves right-wing cross was the only chance of note in the first half. Barca actually looked more dangerous and sprightly when Celtic was on the attack -- but that seldom happened. The match became even more lopsided after Browns silly sending-off, after which Neymar was vociferously booed whenever he touched the ball. Still, though, Celtic defended comfortably and came close to taking the lead when first James Forrest brought a diving save out of goalkeeper Victor Valdes before Charlie Mulgrew headed the resulting corner narrowly wide. But Barca was not to be denied and within minutes of coming on for Pedro Rodriguez, Sanchez crossed for Fabregas to head the ball back in the direction it came. Forster had no chance but he produced heroics to deny Sanchez, twice, and Neymar as Barcelona broke at will late on.

It certainly isnt a coincidence that Dwight Howard has scored at least 20 points in each game of the winning streak.MINNEAPOLIS -- Vernon Wells drove in three runs, and the New York Yankees pounded rookie Kyle Gibson and the Minnesota Twins 9-5 on Thursday to finish a four-game sweep. Travis Hafner had three hits and scored twice, and Ichiro Suzuki had a two-run triple among his three hits for the Yankees, who scored 29 runs in the series. The Yankees didnt even need their usual super-sized contribution from Robinson Cano, whose streak of six straight multihit games ended without reaching base. He still batted .500 on this seven-game road trip with 11 RBIs. Justin Morneau homered twice for the Twins, one-third of his season total. But Gibson (1-1) gave up 11 hits, a walk, a hit by pitch and eight runs in 5 1-3 innings with two strikeouts in his second start. David Phelps (6-5) surrendered Morneaus first homer and three more runs in the seventh, when he left with one out. RBI singles by Pedro Florimon and Brian Dozier and a sacrifice fly by Joe Mauer helped the Twins catch up in that inning, and Morneau went deep again in the eighth. Phelps gave up eight hits and four runs, but he struck out five without a walk. Zoilo Almonte and Alberto Gonzalez also drove in runs for the Yankees. Phelps had a decent June until his final start of the month, when Baltimore beat him up for a season-most nine runs in 2 1-3 innings last Saturday. Swept by the Orioles in that series, the banged-up Yankees brought a five-game losing streak to Target Field, where their woes were quickly forgotten against their longtime punching bag. Since the start of 2002, including the post-season, the Yankees are 71-23 against Minnesota. Gibsons debut last weekend matched the anticipation of the 2009 first-round draft pick built up in the fan base, a winning performance with six sharp innings and two runs allowed. This time, he was behind 3-0 after just his 17th pitch. The first five batters produced two singles, two doubles and a soaring sacrifice fly by Cano that Oswaldo Arcia caught at the wall in left field. The next batter, Wells, hit a two-run single. The game, though, was essentially decided in the third inning. Gibson hit Hafner with a pitch and let him move up on a wild pitch. Then Wells sneaked a low-arc pop-up in the space between Arcia and the infield, justt right for Hafner to score, Arcia to miss a sliding catch by a few inches and Wells to get a double. Mario Gomez Jersey. . Luis Cruz followed with an RBI single, his first hit for the Yankees, to stretch the lead to 5-0. Then in the bottom of the inning, the Twins found more bad breaks indicative of a slumping team. After consecutive singles to start for the Twins, Brian Doziers bunt rolled perfectly down the third-base line where no play was possible. But it strayed a bit too far, across the chalk, and Dozier was summoned back to the box. Then he grounded into a double play, thanks to a slick running pickup and same-motion, sidearm toss by the shortstop Cruz to Cano at second base to start the process. Mauer struck out looking next on a pitch the catcher believed was low, in disagreement with home plate umpire Ed Hickox. Mauer was called out on strikes in his next at-bat, too, and he had more words for Hickox on his way back to the dugout. With Josh Willingham out until August, the Twins are even thinner in the middle of their order. So manager Ron Gardenhire stuck Arcia, an emerging candidate for the Rookie of the Year award, in the third spot and moved Mauer back in the No. 2 slot. "Put him in there and let him hack," Gardenhire said. The Twins have lost 10 of their last 13 games. NOTES: Noted Yankees birthdays on July 4: late owner George Steinbrenner and radio announcer John Sterling. ... Arcia popped out to shortstop in the first inning, breaking his bat so badly that the barrel flew toward first base and landed upright in the grass by the cut-out with the jagged edge working like a tent stake. ... The Yankees have moved SS Eduardo Nunez up to Double-A Trenton in his rehab assignment. Manager Joe Girardi said Nunezs return to the team is possible before the All-Star break. ... The Yankees start a 10-game homestand on Friday, beginning with Baltimore. RHP Ivan Nova (2-2, 4.63 ERA), in place of Hiroki Kuroda, will take the mound. RHP Miguel Gonzalez (6-3, 3.77 ERA) will pitch for the Orioles. ... The Twins begin a 10-game road trip on Friday, continuing their grind through the AL East. RHP Kevin Correia (6-5, 4.08 ERA) will start in Toronto, with LHP Mark Buehrle (4-5, 4.81 ERA) taking the mound for the Blue Jays.
