Juventus coach Antonio Conte praises the atmosphere at Celtic Park.

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has praised the atmosphere at Celtic Park following their 3-0 win on Tuesday evening.

Goals from Alessandro Matri, Claudio Marchisio and Mirko Vucinic were enough to put Juve in a commanding position in their last-16 Champions League tie, and Conte has spoken glowingly about the Celtic crowd.

"I personally have been in this competition for many years but had rarely seen a passionate atmosphere like this," Conte told reporters after the game.

"It wasn't easy to play in that atmosphere and I can say that as someone who has experienced these things as a player. I couldn't communicate with the players because it was so loud.

"Every time there was a corner, it felt like the stadium was coming down. The team deserves praise for getting this result in Glasgow."

Juventus host Neil Lennon's side for the return leg on March 6.
