Armstrong delivers verdict on Celtic chances of Champions League qualification
By John Reid
Stuart Armstrong believes that Celtic can still make the last sixteen of the Champions League even though the odds look stacked against the Parkhead side.
“If we can win on Tuesday night then I don’t see why second place can’t be achievable at all”, the midfielder told The Scotsman. “We have to aim as high as possible”.
Despite a heavy defeat to Bayern two weeks ago, Armstrong is of the opinion that his side can get a result against all the odds.
“Anything is possible… we just need to try and take as many points as we can.”
Celtic go into Tuesday’s game at Celtic Park on three points, sitting in third place in the group and favourites to be playing in the Europa League after Christmas.

Bayern are currently second in the group on six points, three points behind group leaders PSG, and are set to be without striker Robert Lewandowski for the game, which will boost Celtic’s chances of getting a good result on Tuesday night.
Armstrong came on as a second-half substitute in Celtic’s 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock on Saturday which saw the club equal the 100 year Scottish domestic record of 62 games unbeaten.
Despite Celtic’s long unbeaten run, they are only a point ahead of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
