Andrea Pirlo says that Juventus have prepared themselves for anything that Celtic could throw at them in Glasgow on Tuesday.

Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo has said that he and his teammates are "ready" to face Celtic in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Scottish champions will host their Italian counterparts in the first leg of the last-16 tie in Glasgow.

"We are ready for anything," he told Tuttosport. "We have seen how Celtic beat Barcelona, but maybe we are better prepared than the Catalans on how to adapt to the circumstances.

"They play some fantastic football, but Celtic frustrated them with their approach. Whatever they will try, Juventus will be ready for it, though.

"If they want to play football, we'll respond by playing football. If they want to fight, we will be ready to go to battle."

Juventus are currently five points clear at the top of Serie A.
