Celtic vs. AC Milan: Preview and TV schedule

Marco Luzzani

AC Milan can expect a tough test away in Glasgow on Tuesday, as Celtic welcome them to town.

Celtic have taken some big scalps at home in the Champions League in recent times, and are hoping to add AC Milan to that list on Tuesday. The Italian giants are having a tough time of it domestically, and Neil Lennon's side may well feel that the rossoneri are there for the taking.

Barcelona are running away with Group H, though the battle for the second spot is intense. Milan currently occupy it, but are only a point ahead of Ajax, and two points ahead of Celtic. If the hosts can cause an upset and beat Milan in Glasgow, they'd jump ahead of them in the group.

Unfortunately Celtic will be without Adam Matthews, Steven Mouyokolo, Nir Biton and Scott Brown through suspension, though their injury troubles are nothing compared to AC Milan's. Massimiliano Allegri will have to do without a string of first team players, with the most notable being defenders Philippe Mexès and Mattia De Sciglio, and star striker Stephan El Shaarawy.

Celtic injuries and suspensions

Out: Adam Matthews (collarbone), Steven Mouyokolo (Achilles), Nir Biton (suspended), Scott Brown (suspended). In doubt: None.

AC Milan injuries and suspensions

Out: Sulley Muntari (muscle), Cristian Zaccardo (ankle), Marco Amelia (knee), Giampaolo Pazzini (knee), Stephan El Shaarawy (thigh), Mattia De Sciglio (knee), Philippe Mexès (eye). In doubt: None.
