“We Believe We Can Do it Again”- Ambrose in Confident Mood Ahead of Tuesday’s Cracker..

Super Eagles defender Efe Ambrose believes Celtic can stage a repeat of last season’s group stage shock victory over Barcelona as both sides squares up tonight in a Champions League Group H tie at Celtic Park.

Ambrose was in full form at the heart of ‘The Hoops’s’ defence when manager Neil Lennon’s side stunned the Catalan giants 2-1 last November.

He says memories of that historic night means the La Liga champions will be in Glasgow seeking for a revenge.

“We know it will be even more difficult and dangerous for us, because it will be like payback for them,” Ambrose told the Daily Mail. “A year ago, beating them was unbelievable- so few people imagined that we could beat them.”

The right-back is however banking on the great atmosphere at Celtic Park to spur the team to another impressive feat. He insists another surprise package cannot be ruled out.

“I believe this time Barcelona will be coming in full force to Celtic Park. But we are going to step it up. We know all eyes are on us to see if our win last year was some kind of fluke.

“We have to prove we can do it again at Celtic Park. We are not just playing for ourselves, we are playing for 60,000 fans who are the best in the world.

“Everything is possible in football. We believe we can do it again and we will do it again,” he added.

“Beating them last season was one of the best results in my career. It puts us into the limelight and we’ve been in full view of Europe since then.

“The game changed everything about how some people looked at Celtic.”


  1. They did well and Efe Ambrose played an excellent first half at CENTRE BACK!!! Are you listening ‘Big Boss’? Apart from one or two lapses in possession, his distribution was reliable, positioning good and general demeanour impressive. Could it be that we may have another Central Defensive option until Omeruo recovers full fitness with Terna Suswam finally getting full recognition at his best untried position of RIGHT BACK??
