Manager Neil Lennon says Celtic are up for the challenge of facing Italian Serie 'A' leaders Juventus in the Champions League at Parkhead this evening.

"We've proved already this season that we can be a match for anyone" - Neil Lennon
And while Lennon openly admits he is expecting a tough encounter against confident opponents who warmed up for the contest with a 2-0 victory against Fiorentina at the weekend, he stressed Celtic can certainly beat any side in the world on their day - as they famously displayed against tournament favourites Barcelona back in November.
