Benfica have to match Celtic’s result at home to Spartak Moscow to qualify but have a tough ask on their hands given they are travelling to Barcelona.
“Celtic may even qualify but if we don’t count Barcelona, Spartak and us are the strongest of the group, in my opinion,” Jesus said.
“I’m sick of repeating that Barcelona are the best in the world. Still, we go to Barcelona with a lot of confidence.
“The truth is they have one player who makes the difference and, without him, Barcelona are not as strong. Whether or not (Lionel) Messi plays, we go there to win.”
