Former Arsenal and Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka is expecting a tough test for his new Juventus side at Celtic Park on Tuesday evening.

"It is one of the most famous and intense football cities in the world" - Nicolas Anelka
The 33-year-old Frenchman is currently awaiting his first involvement for the 'Old Lady' of Italian football since recently arriving from China's Shangai Shenhua.

"What Celtic have going for them is no pressure," Anelka told BBC Sport. "It will be a tough game in Glasgow. It is one of the most famous and intense football cities in the world."

Juventus comfortably defeated Fiorentina 2-0 in Serie 'A' at the weekend and will be training at Rangers' Murray Park in preparation for the game.
