Celtic have drawn Juventus in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. Juventus qualified in first place from group E with 12pts two in front of second place Shakhtar Donetsk who like Celtic finished on 10 pts.
Juventus are currently sitting top of Serie A seven points in front of second place inter so they must be no to shabby a side but not unbeatable. They do not have a player in the top five scorers in the league but that signals that they have several players like Celtic who chip in with goals throughout the team.
Many think that Itallian football is not as strong as it once was . However we can’t under estimate Juve. I believe over two legs we can beat them if we have our best players fit and we have some unfinished business with them after they cheated us in our first ever Champions League game in 2001.
Dates and times of home and away ties to be announced.
All the best to Neil and his bhoys
