Match Preview: Inter Milan v Celtic, predicted line-ups, team news

Celtic FC Flag

Celtic travel to the San Siro for the second-leg of their Europa League last-32 clash against Inter Milan, having drawn the first 3-3.

The Bhoys were forced to come from behind twice in the first-leg, with John Guidetti’s last gasp equaliser drawing the scores level.

Guidetti followed that goal up with another in the 4-0 win against Hamilton, whilst Inter beat Cagliari 2-1 in their Serie A match.

Deciding who will lead the line for Celtic is Ronny Deila’s biggest dilemma. He opted to rest Leigh Griffiths against Hamilton, begging the question if Guidetti was being given the chance to show he has returned to form or if the Scotsman was being rested ahead of a difficult game in Milan. 

Despite coming off injured at half-time against Hamilton, Jason Denayer is expected to start for Celtic alongside Kris Commons, who scored twice on his return from a hamstring injury in the same game, and will be a big boost for the Bhoys.

Roberto Mancini has been forced into two changes due to Lukas Podolski and Marcelo Brozovic not being eligible to play in their Europa League campaign.

Juan Pablo Carrizo will replace Samir Handanovic in goal and Rodrigo Palacio, who scored twice in the first-leg, will partner Mauro Icardi in the Inter attack.

Inter Milan predicted line up

Carrizo, Campagnaro, Ranocchia, Jesus, Santon, Guarin, Medel, Kovacic, Shaqiri, Icardi, Palacio

Celtic predicted line up
