Celtic to Take on Sweden in Denmark
Pierre Bengtsson, the defender from Copenhagen has recently been talking about the connection between Sweden and Celtic. The looks are certain for the left-back to begin after two days when Celtic will visit Denmark to face Copenhagen in the Europa Leagues last 32. The first stage of the tie match will happen in the capital. The return stage will be hosted by Celtic after a week. Celtic is not completely unknown to Bengtsson. He is quite aware of the historical figures from Swedish who played for the club like Johan Mjallby and Henrik Larsson. They have been successful players at Parkhead.
Before the most-awaited contest between Sweden and Celtic, Pierre Bengtsson made some nice comments about the club. He clearly remembered Henrik Larsson and his way of celebration. He said Henrik was a hero back then and he has grown up watching such legendary players and what they have done at Celtic. Bengtsson has never been to Celtic Park, but he has heard a lot about the place. He is really looking forward to playing at the famous location finally where legends have played. He thinks that he is very much excited and it will be a nice experience for him.
The Danes have been building themselves up for this match by keeping a friendly feel to their approach. It is always good to hear good compliments, but Celtic will be cautious. Mind games can play a major role in football. There are no chances that Copenhagen will talk about behind-the-scenes situations such as how good they are and how they are the favorites. They will obviously see certain areas of the team led by Neil Lennon to build up their confidence so they can exploit the opponent. Everyone’s eyes will be on the prize for the last 16 amidst all the good comments made by Pierre Bengtsson.
