MOTD preview- Juventus vs Celtic

The second leg of Juventus’s Champions League Round of 16 tie is set to be a good one, with Celtic almost certainly out of the tournament, needing a 3-0 win at Juventus Stadium to advance to the Quarterfinals.  Celtic played well in the first leg, but ended falling 3-0 to Juventus through Claudio Marchisio and Mirko Vucinic’s late goals.  Despite almost surely managing to advance, Juventus’s coach Antonio Conte has said that the tie is not over and that he will not rest their main players who are on yellow cards and in risk of missing the next match.  Even though their chances of advancing are slim, Neil Lennon’s side will go down fighting, and will try to manage another fantastic win to add to their tally already existing of their 2-1 win over Barcelona in the Group Stage.  Lennon has warned referee Firat Aydinus to do his job properly in the match, but that tactic has already failed in the Champions League this week and when Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson told Cunenyt Cakir to do the same ahead of their 2-1 loss to Real Madrid.  It backfired on Sir Alex though, and Cakir made some outrageous decisions against United.  For instance giving Nani a straight red card for a challenge on Alvaro Arbeloa.  But whether it is refereed fairly of not, the match is sure to be exciting, so look out for my full time review, right here on Football Every Day!
