The last thing you want after rolling over to your fiercest rivals is a visit from a European footballing heavyweight, but that’s exactly what Celtic face on Thursday.
Fresh from their woeful performance against Rangers at the weekend, Neil Lennon has to rally his side as AC Milan come to town in the Europa League.
If Connor Goldson can score a double against this Celtic defence then you can be sure Zlatan will fancy his chances.

Our Top Odds Pick – AC Milan to win – 3/4 at 888sport
Milan arrive here on the back of their own derby weekend, but unlike Celtic, they put in an cracking performance to see off rivals Inter, 2-1.
With fans still locked out, Celtic Park is far from being the bubbling cauldron it usually is, and that’s a welcome boost for visiting teams.
Milan have been victorious in the last three clashes between these two footballing giants and we can see them comfortably making it four wins here.
Our Extra Pick – AC Milan -1 goal — 12/5 at Betfair
Celtic lacked any sort of intensity against Rangers and if they can’t raise their game in an Old Firm match then it’s a big ask for them to do it here in another empty Celtic Park.
Milan have won their last four away matches by two clear goals and they should have enough in the tank to overcome a one-goal betting deficit here – especially with Zlatan leading the line.
Our Long Shot – AC Milan to win 3-0 – 14/1 at bet365
3-0 to Milan was the score the last time these sides met and, at 14/1, it’s a scoreline that we’re happy to take a chance on again.
Celtic seem to be struggling to capitalise on home advantage, especially in these European ties and on the back of a woeful showing against Rangers, we’re expecting the Italians to stroll this.
