Antonio Conte: Has told his players not to take qualification for granted

The Serie A leaders are 3-0 up from the first leg in Glasgow and odds-on to reach the last eight of the competition for the first time since 2006 but Conte has warned against complacency.

"Nobody wants to minimise the importance of this game; qualification is obtained over 180 minutes," he said.

"We've only played 90 and we have another 90, plus maybe extra-time and penalties, against a strong, proud team who will want to make amends for the first leg.

"There is a quarter-final to be reached so we definitely won't under-estimate this game.

"It's going to be a test for everybody, starting with me, then the players and the club.

"Certainly the first leg has given us a seriously good chance of reaching the next round, but in football there are always surprises if you don't play with the right determination and concentration.

"Celtic are a very physical side and can create lots of problems from set-pieces.

"We've got to be fully focused because we want to go through and so we've got to give it everything."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
