Aiming to put Celtic under further pressure in the middle of the week, AC Milan will welcome the Scots to the San Siro on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, while AC Milan would have been disappointed to have had to settle for a point away from Lille last week, the Italian giants have surprised many since opening the 2020/2021 campaign. Last seen over the weekend, turning their attention to Serie A duties, Stefano Pioli’s men took a routine 2-0 win against Fiorentina at home and suddenly find themselves within a five-point margin. at the top of the Italian top flight. With many now believing they have a real shout out when mounting a shocking title loadout this season, I Rossoneri has notably lost just one showdown across all formats since we opened the new campaign. Sitting in pole position to reserve their spot in this year’s Europa League knockout phase, there is no doubt that AC Milan will be looking to establish another score at the San Siro.
As for the visitors, while AC Milan might have surprised many since the New Year opened, Celtic are in the midst of a growing crisis with a host of problems both on and off the field. With many around Celtic Park calling for Neil Lennon to step down from his role in the dugout, the Scottish defending champs put on what was a terrible display at home over the weekend. Coming out of the League Cup thanks to what was a surprising 2-0 loss to Ross County in Glasgow, the Hoops have now managed to win just one of their last five meetings in all competitions. Last seen in European duties pulling the lead and getting beaten 4-1 at Sparta Praha last week, we are backing up another tough night for Celtic at San Siro.
Bet: AC Milan 20/21 to beat Celtic and over 2.5 goals in Thursday’s Europa League tie @ 888 sport
