AC Milan hosts Celtic in round 5 of the Europa League group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, December 3rd at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan).
The two starting victories in the group played an Old Harry with Rossoneri. Pioli's men were somewhat relaxed and focused on their internal affairs. In the last two rounds, Milan lost to Lille on the road (0:3) and tied with it at home (1:1). These results threw the club to second place in the standings and allowed Sparta to come close at arm's length (only one point behind). The regular players of Milan are capable of producing results in European Cups, and Pioli often uses the rotation of the squad and allows his leaders to have some rest. The Europa League is far from the main tournament for Rossoneri. In the upcoming match, we can see such players as Brahim Diaz, Conti, Tatarusanu, Krunjic, and D. Maldini.
The flagship of Scottish football is having another indistinct European Cup season. This year, FC Rangers will surely perform better in the Europa League than Celtic, and the Light Blues will take the next step towards removing the White-Greens from the throne at the national level. Neil Lennon's men have almost lost their chances of continuing the struggle for a place in the Europa League playoffs, as Milan or Sparta will probably bypass the Scots after a head-to-head meeting. The Glasgow team has a number of solid footballers who are capable of bringing results in the European Cup arena - goalkeeper Barkas, defenders Duffy, Julien, and Laxalt, midfielders Elyunoussi, Christie, and McGregor, and forward Eduardo. Unfortunately, these players are clearly inferior to their rivals in terms of tactics.
It will be an important match for both teams. Celtic will go forward, using pressure in midfield. Milan's game will be entirely dependent on the players whom Pioli will field from the opening minutes. The coaching staff of the hosts will try to tackle the task of reaching the Europa League playoffs already in this confrontation.
