Celtic Draw Juventus

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

  1. We do respect Celtic as we do all our opponents, but I do think you are delusional. The tie could go either way, but if I was you I wouldn’t be so confident about beating Juve over two legs. This is a team that have only lost 3 times in the last 60+ games. The Juve team makes the Italian core (7 players) that reached the final of Euro 2012.

  3. Big deal Barca make up the core of the World Champions and only managed to score 2 of their goals against us in extra time. We fear NO ONE

    Confidence is born of experience and with our experiences in this year’s CL we have every reason to be confident. In any competition with only two opportunities to win, the results could go either way in either leg not just, as Joe implies, in the one at Parkhead. After all, Arbroath could have been a proper banana skin both home and away for us recently. I do think you misunderstand the Celtic fans, Joe, if you believe our boasts are unconditional. However, you must concede, that, given the results against Barcelona, we are entitled to some bluster. I think too, that the terror, and for many of us that was what it was, that pervaded the club in the early days of the competition has more than disappeared and it has been replaced with a new found belief. In view of our dismal displays in the past, I think we are entitled to a little bravado, albeit with a somewhat cheeky grin, while we still have the ammunition to justify it. Please concede this little pleasure to us for the moment, temporary as it could well be. As for your own team and support, thank you for respect for our club. Please let me reciprocate. Not only do Juve’s results speak for themselves but even with my limited knowledge from TV, I recognise a formidable opponent against whom we will need all the qualities, rubs of the green and goalkeeping exploits that accompanied our two games against Barca. When all said and done though, each to his day and that makes it open house no matter what team. I only hope both games are good quality entertainment, that controversy, never far away in our past encounters, is avoided and that supporters of both clubs, even if it be the end for one of them, can still celebrate the levels of success already achieved.

  9. As long as the press is watching, Hooper and Wanyama will be playing out of their socks against Juventus. Besides, we are Celtic, we fear no one.
