Celtic manager Neil Lennon believes that his side can beat Juventus in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has claimed that his side can beat Juventus in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

The Italian champions won the first leg 3-0 in Glasgow last month.

Lennon has admitted that while it would take a "minor miracle" for his side to qualify for the quarter-finals, the Bhoys could still win on the night.

"We are capable of winning the game and that's what we'd like to do," quotes Lennon as saying.

"We have to get a foothold in the game. If we create as many chances as we did at Celtic Park then we'll be in for a good night.

"The pressure is off, so we need to try and restore some respectability. If we can win in Italy it would be a fantastic achievement by this team. To qualify would take a minor miracle."

The second leg takes place in Turin on Wednesday evening.
