Celtic's Nakamura confident making Benfica date
Strachan said in the Evening Times: "Naka will be back to play against Benfica and that's very good news. He's a brave wee man and his attitude is terrific."
Celtic have just three points from their opening three matches in their Group D campaign and are determined to win their two remaining home games to give themselves a chance of reaching the last 16.
Their 1-0 defeat to Benfica in Lisbon last week is followed by the home leg in Glasgow next Tuesday.
