Juventus too strong for spirited Hoops

Celtic's Champions League journey ended at the last-16 stage with a 2-0 (5-0 aggregate) defeat to Juventus after goals from Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella separated the sides in rain-lashed Turin.

The Serie A leaders took what turned out to be an unassailable three-goal lead from the first leg into the game and any feint hopes of a Hoops comeback ended in the 24th minute when Matri opened the scoring from close range.

Quagliarella notched the second in the 65th minute as the spirited Parkhead men were again punished heavily for a lack of concentration. However, in the final analysis, Celtic can only look at their European campaign in a positive light.
