BARAK BAKHAR, boss of Hapoel Be’er Sheva, has warned Celtic he believes the fanatical home support in the Turner Stadium this evening can help his side turn around the Champions League second leg.
The manager concedes his players have a mountain to climb to overcome the Hoops’ 5-2 first leg triumph at Parkhead last week.
However, Bakhar is refusing to concede defeat and he is convinced the fans in the 16,000-capacity stadium can roar his side on to an unlikely victory.img_2211.jpg
He cautioned: “In football, there are games when the impossible can happen. We have to remember these games.

“It’s a Champions League match and we have to produce a good performance and not think about the result.

“Of course, the fans will have a very significant part in the match. The crowd is very important – we saw it last week at Celtic Park. They can play a huge part in helping us produce an amazing performance.

“There were a lot of conclusions from the game in Glasgow. We didn’t perform in the minutes at the start and at the end.

“We learned a lot about Celtic and the target is to perform better than last time.

“We will try to do our best. The score is tough for us, but we will try to do the club proud.

“It’s exciting, but it’s different from the league. Last year we created history when we won the league for the first time in 40 years.

“This is the Champions League. I’ve never come back from three goals, but there is always a first time. My players give me the confidence we can do it.”
