CELTIC 1 JUVENTUS 0 (European Cup first round first leg, September 1981)

Celtic midfielder Murdo MacLeod handed Billy McNeil's side a memorable first-leg win against Giovanni Trapattoni's men in the opening round of the 1981-82 European Cup. MacLeod's effort deceived Dino Zoff in the 65th minute after Davie Provan's corner had put the Juve defence under pressure. Future Celtic manager Liam Brady was among the visiting team alongside the core of the Italy side who would go on to win the World Cup the following summer - Zoff joined by Gaetano Scirea, Antonio Cabrini, Claudio Gentile and Marco Tardelli.

JUVENTUS 2 CELTIC 0 (European Cup first round second leg, September 1981)

Celtic's hopes of completing a famous victory were dashed in the first half in Turin. Pietro Virdis netted the opener when Pat Bonner could not keep out his long-range effort following a strong run and Roberto Bettega turned and volleyed home the winner.

JUVENTUS 3 CELTIC 2 (Champions League group stage, September 2001)

Celtic suffered one of their cruellest European defeats when Nicola Amoruso's controversial late penalty handed Juventus three points after Martin O'Neill's side had come back from two goals down. David Trezeguet's double put Juve in command but Stiliyan Petrov's deflected effort and an 85th-minute Henrik Larsson penalty brought Celtic level. With Edgar Davids sent off following a series of fouls, Celtic sensed victory but Amoruso threw himself to the ground under the attention of Joos Valgaeren and German referee Helmut Krug pointed to the spot. Amoruso converted the last-minute spot-kick and O'Neill was sent to stand for protesting against the "shocking" decision.

CELTIC 4 JUVENTUS 3 (Champions League group stage, October 2001)

Celtic needed to win to have any chance of progressing to the last 16 and were inspired by Lubomir Moravcik as they beat Marcello Lippi's team. Alessandro Del Piero opened the scoring with a wonderful free-kick but Valgaeren and Chris Sutton converted Moravcik crosses to give Celtic a half-time lead. Trezeguet equalised but Larsson's penalty and an emphatic strike by Sutton put Celtic back in control. Trezeguet scored again but Celtic held on only for Porto to beat them to second spot in the group with victory over Rosenborg.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
