Celtic will play Juventus in the last 16 round of the Champions League. Juve are seven points clear top of the Italian league having won the competition last season without losing a game. They eliminated reigning European champions, Chelsea, in the last round and finished above a good Shakthar team.
They are remarkably well organised and don’t lose many goals (10 in 17 league games, 7 less than anyone else), but this is a tie Celtic can plan for. Juventus will present the same kind of challenge Barcelona did in the group stage, but they are not as effective as the Catalans.
Celtic have faced them twice in the European Cup/Champions League previously, winning both home games and losing away on each occasions, controversially in 2001.
I’m up for this one. Fairy-tale story with the lovable Celts the only British representatives in the quarter finals? Loins girded.
