Celtic won’t give up says Ambrose

Celtic centre-back Efe Ambrose believes his side still has a chance to defeat Juventus and advance to the next round of the Champions League despite being down 3-0 in their round of 16 tie.

The Hoops were able to keep Juventus at bay for the better part of 70 minutes in the first leg, however, two goals in the final 15 minutes saw their deficit go from one goal to three.

The Nigerian international was somewhat controversially placed in the starting XI in the first leg despite playing for Nigeria in the African Cup of Nations final only a few days before the match as his error led to Juventus’s first goal of the match.

“Anything is possible,” Ambrose said to the club’s official website. “We have to go there and meet them head-on, because I think there is still a chance for us.

“At Celtic Park we played well, but we were unlucky, we will see how it goes in Italy, but whatever happens we must not give up.”

Should Juventus advance, it will be the first time since the 2005-06 season that the Bianconeri will compete in the quarterfinals of Europe’s premier club competition.
