Celtic confident of getting past Elfsborg in CL qualifiers

Scottish champions Celtic are backing themselves to get past Swedish side Elfsborg in the third round of Champions League qualifying.

The Hoops beat Northern Irish club Cliftonville 5-0 on aggregate in the second round and will now need to navigate the Allsvenskan's fifth-place team who fired past Latvian outfit Daugava Daugavpils 11-1.

"We will try to take the game to Elfsborg and try to put them under pressure," said manager Neil Lennon.

"A clean sheet will be a huge bonus but this team and these players can score away from home.

"Even if the result isn't brilliant or is in the balance we know we can go there and get a result.

"I think the experience of last season will stand them in good stead."
