AC Milan: The Rossoneri will be without Ante Rebic or Hakan Calhanoglu for Thursday's game due to injury which means the top line will have to have some adjustments. While eyes will likely be on Ibrahimovic, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao will largely be responsible for generating some playmaking in front of goal for the Serie A club.
Celtic: The home side are dealing with some injury issues of their own ahead of Thursday's match missing Scotland international James Forrest and young winger Mikey Johnston. Coach Lennon could stick with his 3-5-2 system in an effort to try disrupt Milan's creativity and possibly counter on the wings.
