AC Milan vs Celtic: Match preview
AC Milan are enjoying a hugely successful season so far after moving five points clear at the top of Serie A on Sunday.
A 2-0 win over Fiorentina helped Milan to reestablish their sizable gap over rivals Inter after nine games played.
However, in the Europa League, it is a different story, with Milan currently second place in a congested group.
Milan are just a point behind leaders Lille and a point ahead of Sparta Prague in third place.
A win for Stefano Pioli’s side and Prague losing to Lille would see Milan through to the knockout stages.
Neil Lennon under pressure
Neil Lennon is under pressure to start turning things around at Celtic Park with the Scottish champions struggling both domestically and in Europe.
Celtic have collected just one point from their first four games in the Europa League and are likely to be eliminated on Thursday.
The Glasgow club require at least two wins from their remaining two fixtures to stand any chances of advancing in the competition.
Last season’s Scottish champions are also under real threat of surrendering their league title with Rangers leading the way by 11 points.
