Celtic are on the cusp of what would be a "wonderful" Champions League achievement, according to assistant manager Johan Mjallby.

The Hoops are still on a high following their remarkable 2-1 home win over Barcelona earlier in the month and take on Benfica at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night knowing that a victory would ensure qualification through to the knockout stages of the competition with a game remaining. A scoring draw would take Celtic through if Spartak Moscow fail to beat Group G leaders Barcelona in Russia.

"It would be a wonderful achievement for the players and the management," said Mjallby. "Obviously we can't compete financially with the other three clubs in the group. So I think it speaks volumes for the players, how hungry they are and their desire to improve all the time."
