Barcelona Can Lose To Celtic, Says Rodgers

share on:

Former Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers believes Celtic can record an historical win against Barcelona when they face in the UCL.

Barcelona thrashed the Scotland club 7-0 in the first leg, but Rodgers is confident home advantage will help them shock the Catalans.

Neil Lennon famously guided Celtic to a 2-1 win against the Spanish giants in 2012, and Rodgers believes fans are right to expect a similar result on Wednesday at Celtic Park.

“It’s how it should be,” Rodgers told the Daily Express.

“Every game is different. When you come into the cauldron, it is a different theatre to play in.

“Barca have experienced it before, they know it’s tough.

“But hopefully what we have created here in a short period of time is that we are a team that’s not going to wait for opponents.”

Rodgers knows exactly the quality that Barca present, but feels that if his side can play to their best, they can be more than a match for Luis Enrique’s team.

“We have to be aggressive,” the 43-year-old admitted.

“We know they are some of the top players ever, but we have to get up to them and see how they cope when you are right at them.

“It is great that we feel that we can win. It’s a mark of where the club’s going.”
