UEFA Champions League: Ancelotti lauds team for Euro progress

NEW HERO:With talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic missing because of suspension, and David Beckham on the bench, striker Kevin Gameiro grabbed the limelight for PSG


The visitors continued to press, but found Juve’s defense virtually impenetrable and their hopes were over when Fabio Quagliarella tapped home Arturo Vidal’s square ball past a beaten Fraser Forster just after the hour.

Ahead of next week’s draw, Conte — who was quick to applaud Celtic and their fans — said the Italian champions would be “humble” when it comes to meeting “strong” sides like Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.

Asked how he would approach the next phase of the competition, Conte said: “We have to wait for the draw.”

“I tend to be a fatalist so we have to watch out and see which players we do have available and who we come up against,” he said.

“We’re now in a very positive situation, but with some pros and cons. But I hope we will be able overcome the challenges that lie ahead,” Conte said.
