Neil Lennon: Celtic can shock Juventus

Posted on 12/02/2013 in Serie A

Neil Lennon has said that Juventus can be added to the growing list of Park Head scalps tonight (February 12th) when they play Celtic in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Serie A champions may be favourites to progress from the tie, but Lennon said a win over Barcelona in the group stage shows the Hoops can beat anyone.

"I think we have been underestimated throughout the whole campaign and going into this game we are being made out to be massive underdogs," he stated.

However, he insists that there is a real belief in his squad and they will push Juventus hard over the 180 minutes of the tie.

Since the draw was made, Juve have added Nicolas Anelka to an already talented front line of Mirko Vucinic, Fabio Quagliarella, Sebastian Giovinco, but Lennon singled out special praise for Alessandro Matri, who scored in his socks during the 2-0 weekend win over Fiorentina.
