Dani Alves: Barcelona won't lose to Celtic again
Barcelona defender Dani Alves is confident that his side will emerge victorious in this week's Champions League tie against Celtic.
Last season saw Barcelona surprisingly beaten 2-1 at Parkhead, but Alves feels the Scottish champions got lucky and will not cause an upset again, reports Goal.com.
"We lost in Scotland last season but the reality was it wasn’t a fair result," the 30-year-old told the Daily Record."
"We accepted we lost but it was down to individual errors. It was not down to Celtic playing better football than us on the night.
"They were lucky. It was a one-off that won’t happen again.
"We have anticipated the way that Celtic will play against us and we have to accept that. If they adopt the same approach again, they will be very fortunate to get anything from the game this time."
Barca will be without the influencial Lionel Messi against Celtic, but Alves believes that Neymar will prove to be an able deputy for the Argentine.
"Celtic are aware about our quality but Neymar is a new challenge they have not yet faced."
