Celtic captain Scott Brown knows that European away fixtures are never easy, but believes his side are capable of picking up the points with their ever-improving away form.

The Hoops face Elfsborg in the second leg of their Champions League third round qualifying tie, and take a 1-0 aggregate lead into the match. 

Heavy emphasis has been placed upon the fact that their Swedish opponents play their home games on an artificial pitch, but Brown is confident of navigating the obstacle.

"We have had a lot of games on astroturf in the last few seasons and are getting quite used to it," the 28-year-old said.

"This is a club who can go away from home now and get a good result."

The Scottish league holders impressed on their travels in Europe last season, beating HJK Helsinki and Helsingborgs on their way to the group stage, whilst only missing out on a point away at Barcelona due to a last minute equaliser. 

Brown intends for his side to be every bit as competitively successful as they were last time out.

He said: "There was talk about it in the past, about us struggling away from home and getting beat in every game, but now we seem to be winning away from home as well. That's what the gaffer has instilled in us."

Celtic meet Elfsborg in their second leg encounter at the Boras Arena on Wednesday.
