Team News

AC Milan
AC Milan are still without Stefano Pioli back ahead of Thursday night's game - the former Fiorentina manager tested positive for COVID-19 over two weeks ago - so Daniele Bonera stays in the dugout. Pioli has generally selected a much-rotated XI in Europe and will do so again on Thursday.

Key man Zlatan Ibrahimovic is unlikely to return until next week, while Samu Castillejo and Rafael Leao are also injured and have been ruled out. However, Belgium winger Alexis Saelemaekers has recovered and Ismael Bennacer is back in training but may not be involved.

Diogo Dalot should come back into the lineup along with Matteo Gabbia in defence, while Jens Petter Hauge may feature on the left wing.
AC Milan possible starting lineup:
Donnarumma; Hernandez, Romagnoli, Gabbia, Dalot; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Hauge; Rebic
AC Milan Europa League form: WWLD
AC Milan form (all competitions): WLDWDW

For under-pressure Neil Lennon, Celtic star James Forrest is still out after ankle surgery and will not return for several weeks yet. The beleaguered boss switched to a three-man defence in the humbling against Ross County but will more likely use a 4-2-3-1, with Odsonne Edouard at its apex.
Celtic possible starting lineup:
Bain; Frimpong, Ajer, Jullien, Laxalt; Brown, McGregor; Ntcham, Christie, Elyounoussi; Edouard
Celtic Europa League form: LDLL
Celtic form (all competitions): WLWDLL

Prediction: AC Milan 3-0 Celtic
