Nevertheless, the Celtic manager wants his players to embrace the occasion and adopt a positive approach to the Group G match.
When asked if the wins in Helsinki and Helsingborg during qualification had confirmed that his players had broken through the mental barrier of winning big games in Europe, Lennon replied: "I hope so, but you never can tell.
