Conceding three away goals was surely not part of the plan, but Celtic are by no means guaranteed a Europa League exit in the San Siro.
Much like the Lisbon Lions, who came from a goal down to beat tonight’s foes Inter Milan to win the 1967 European Cup, the Bhoys will defy expectations to advance to the last 16 of the competition.
A price of 5/1 says they’ll win the match in 90 minutes, while it’s a princely 9/2 about Ronny Deila’s men qualifying.
The latter rewards to the tune of £135 if fresh bwinners stake their £30 free bet sign up bonus on the outcome and it’s a course of action well worth taking.
Celtic twice overturned deficits to hold the Nerazzurri to a 3-3 draw in a textbook humdinger last week and travel to a venue where the hosts have kept just four clean sheets since mid-October.
Their San Siro stomping ground is far from the stronghold it once was and the Scottish Premiership champions stand an excellent chance of clawing back at least one of those away goals they leaked at base camp.
Bagging on their travels hasn’t been an issue for the boys in green and white of late, with six straight wins strung together ahead of this sojourn to the Italian fashion capital.
Ross County were the only opponent to restrict them to one goal on this imperious streak, while they’ve also rustled the net (though not won of yet) in each of their three road games in this competition, amassing six goals in total.
Celtic also have previous of upsetting the odds at the Guiseppe Meazza.
In the 1972 European Cup semi-final they got a goalless draw against this adversary, a result they repeated when facing stable mates AC Milan here in the same competition under it’s modern guise in 2007.
