The Champions League has been marginally better for Milan, but they still lie five points behind Barcelona in second place.
It has already been a season to forget for Milan and it would not be a surprise if Celtic were to record another famous win at Parkhead on Tuesday evening.
Meanwhile Celtic are five points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, but they lie bottom of Group H on three points. However a win against Milan would leave them one point clear of the Italian giants and would boost their chances of progressing to the knock-out stages.
Milan beat the Scottish champions at the San Siro in September 2-0 and the hoops will no doubt be out for revenge.
Celtic’s final group game is away to Barcelona and if results go their way then a win at the Camp Nou could put Neil Lennon’s men through to the last 16.
