AC Milan defender Massimo Oddo believes Celtic can qualify alongside them for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Rossoneri are favourites to progress from Group D with Benfica, Shakhtar Donetsk and the Hoops fighting it out for second place.

Oddo insists the vociferous Celtic support gives them a chance against any opposition, saying: "Celtic are a very good side and that is why they are playing at Champions League level. They have great fans and in some cases that can push the team on to greater things. I´m really just concentrating on Milan´s progress. But Celtic are a good team, particularly at home, and they have as good a chance as any of the other teams in the group."
