Mjallby promises attacking Celtic

Celtic assistant Johan Mjallby has insisted that his side will attack Juventus in their last 16 Champions League tie tomorrow.

The Scottish champions travel to Turin trailing 3-0 from the first leg, and the 42-year-old Coach has claimed that his men will go out and try to win the match on Wednesday.

“We have to defend with more confidence this time,” he told BBC Sport. “We created a lot of chances in the first leg, but we have to be more courageous.

“We need to take the field with the right mentality. We have to use the set piece, because we've been successful in that area.

“We have a mountain to climb, but we believe we can overcome it.

“We'll be more attacking. I watched their game against Napoli and they played the same way as they did against us.

“They limited their opponents, and were again very rough at corners and free kicks. We have to be ready for that.

“I hope the referee is strong if this happens again.

“If this is to be our last European game of the season, then we want to do it in style.”
