Ac Milan have started off the season struggling, pretty much from the off Milan have looked uncohesive and questions have to be asked after the team brough back Kaka and spent money on Matri , neither players seems to fit into the side but I guess we will have to wait some time and see if they can adjust. With that said Mario Balotelli, El Shaaraway and Robinho have the class and ability to beat most teams and I think that with Milan's attacking prowess and defensive know how Celtic could be in for a very frustrating night.
Celtic have one of the worst away records in the Champions league in recent times, last year the team got their first win away win in group stage history when they beat Spartak Moscow. Manager Neil Lennon was a ball of emotion in the last qualifying game and gave a wry smile at the press conference for the draw when his tea was drawn in teh group of death ith Barcelona, Milan and Ajax. Basically Celtic need a miraclet to get through this group and what better way to start the miracle that a win away to Milan? Anthony Stokes has netted 4 in 5 games and will look to lead the line if he starts playing a counter attacking brand suited to containing teams like Milan.
I dont really like this game, I think the odds makers have wrapped up most of the value and are not under estimating celtic here either. Just a small bet here for interest, I think Celtic will keep this game very tight for as long as possible and while they may eventually tire and get over run. I think Celtic can get to the half on level terms. I'm taking draw halftime/ Milan fulltime. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
