AC Milan vs Celtic: Prediction
Rossoneri were unbeaten in 32 of their preceding 33 overall matches, and they had also registered a 14-game winning run in the process. Going on, they had scored two or more goals in 29 of these 32 fixtures.
Celtic’s crisis of confidence deepens by the day while their hosts are now officially the most in-form team in the top five European leagues – with a greater points average than Bayern Munich or Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur.
AC Milan – even without the influence of Ibra – can take care of business at San Siro, as their youthful ‘shadow side’ are more than capable of shredding the Bhoys’ dodgy defence.
