Benfica's Gaitan: We want to Barcelona what Celtic did

Nicolas Gaitan suggests Benfica need to take a leaf out of Celtic's book and go for the kill against Barcelona.

The Argentine midfielder and his Eagles teammates need to beat the Catalan giants on Wednesday night in order to qualify for the next phase of the Champions League and ironically, it is the mindset of the team they want to knock out of contention that they will be following at the Nou Camp.

"Celtic showed Barcelona are not invincible. We want to repeat their feat," he said.

"We have to play our perfect game and hope that Barca perform at only 50 per cent. But it's possible.

"Our destiny is in our own hands. Celtic will be favourites to qualify but we can still do it."

Celtic host Spartak Moscow in their final Group G match and essentially need to outdo whatever Benfica produce in Barcelona if they want to make it through to the Round of 16.
