Celtic entertain Juventus for the third time at Parkhead this evening having won both of their previous European Cup meetings on home turf.
The first, in September 1981, was a 1-0 victory thanks to a Murdo MacLeod strike. Republic of Ireland international Liam Brady, playing for Juve at the time and who would become Celtic coach in the early 90s, arranged for a coach load of his family to travel from Dublin for the match. It was unlikely that they supported their relative.
But the teams' most recent meeting came 11-and-a-half-years ago in the Champions League group stage. Celtic, much like now in Europe, were terrible on the road but near-invincible at home, with an August qualifying defeat to Ajax a rare surrender.
Juventus had finished second in the previous season's Serie A and although the aura of their mid-to-late 90s side was fading, Marcello Lippi's new Juve would go on to win the Scudetto in 2001-02.
Celtic's defeat away to Rosenborg in their penultimate match meant they were reliant on the Norwegians preventing Porto from winning in the group's other match to be within a chance of qualifying for the second group stage. Pena's first-half strike proved to be the winner.
Needing a win, Celtic produced a dogged and spectacular performance against Juve, recovering after Alessandro del Piero's 19th minute opener to race into a 2-1 lead thanks to Joos Valgaeren's header and Chris Sutton pouncing before half-time.
David Trezeguet equalised after the interval for the Italians but a Henrik Larsson penalty regained Celtic's lead before Sutton doubled it seven minutes later.
Trezeguet reduced the hosts' advantage with 13 minutes to play but Martin O'Neill's side held on for a dramatic yet fruitless win. Celtic were out of the Champions League and in the Uefa Cup.
