'A typical British atmosphere awaits'

Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon has hailed Parkhead's 'typical British atmosphere' as the Bianconeri prepare to play Celtic.

The Turin giants face the Scottish Premier League side in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

And the 35-year-old goalkeeper has admitted that the crowd could have some baring on the result.

“I have played here before with Parma and Juventus,” he told a Press conference. “And it is a typical British atmosphere.

“We know what lies ahead. The crowd can certainly help and give a boost to the players, but only up to a certain point.

“As far as I'm aware, no spectator has ever scored a goal.”
