Antonio Conte is adamant that his Juventus side will not be underestimating Celtic tomorrow night.

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has insisted that his team will not take Celtic lightly during their Champions League clash tomorrow night.

Many bookmakers have made the Italian champions the clear favourites to progress through to the quarter-finals over the two legs at the expense of Celtic.

However, Conte has revealed that he was heavily impressed by Celtic's win over Barcelona and with that in mind, his players will be fully focused.

"It is a dream for me and for Juventus to be here again," he told reporters. "We want to continue dreaming and make it through to the quarter-finals.

"We have studied [Celtic] well. We will not underestimate them. Not many teams have won against Barcelona. They are very physical and often score off of set pieces."

The match will be Conte's first European encounter of the season, having served a touchline ban during the group stages.
