Barcelona sporting director Txiki Begiristain is hoping history does not repeat itself after seeing his side paired against Celtic in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Celtic famously dumped the Spanish giants out of the 2003/04 UEFA Cup when, in the fourth round, the Scottish side won 1-0 at home before holding Barca to a goalless draw at the Nou Camp.

"Celtic will be an opponent who will not allow us to rest much, because we must not forget they knocked us out a few years ago in the UEFA Cup," said Begiristain.
