“We have never faced an opponent with the quality of Levante, so it’s a massive test. I don’t want to put pressure on ourselves, it’s our very first game in Europe, but if we beat Levante then wow, that would be unbelievable. “We know the fantastic quality of the opposition, so we will go there and fight for every ball and try to stay in the game for as long as possible. By far, Levante is the best team – a very good team full of senior internationals, very experienced, they did very well this year in the Spanish league and they have strength in depth as well, a super team.”
Celtic captain Kelly Clark also admits she had perhaps “subconsciously accepted that this might never happen for me” after more than eight years with the club but says confidence is “sky-high right now”.
