Match background Only this chapter

Two former European champions get the ball rolling in UEFA Europa League Group H as Celtic take on AC Milan in Glasgow.

Previous meetings
• The clubs are familiar foes having faced each other ten times previously, all in the European Cup/UEFA Champions League. Milan have recorded six victories to Celtic's one, going through to the final in the first three seasons that the clubs met – in 1968/69 (winners), 2004/05 (runners-up) and 2006/07 (winners).

• Celtic have failed to score in four of their home games against Milan, the exception their solitary victory, 2-1 in the 2007/08 group stage. The Rossoneri beat Neil Lennon's Bhoys home (2-0) and away (3-0) in 2013/14 – the Italian club's last two victories in the UEFA Champions League.

• This is Celtic's 28th UEFA fixture against an Italian club. Excluding the games against Milan, their record against Italian visitors in Glasgow is W5 D3 L1. In last season's UEFA Europa League they defeated Lazio 2-1 both in Glasgow and Rome, those victories ending a nine-game winless streak (D3 L6) against Serie A opposition since that 2007 success against Milan.

• Milan's overall European record against Scottish clubs is W10 D3 L3. In Scotland it is W3 D2 L3, although they have faced no club other than Celtic in the country since 1971.

Form guide
Celtic
• Celtic were declared Scottish champions for the ninth year in a row last season – and 51st time in all – despite the Premiership being called off in March. A 16-match European campaign that started in the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round ended in the UEFA Europa League round of 32, where, after topping their group for the first time, they were knocked out by Copenhagen (1-1 a, 1-3 h).

• This term Celtic failed to negotiate the UEFA Champions League qualifying phase for the third successive summer, losing 1-2 at home to Ferencváros in the second qualifying round, but 1-0 away wins at Riga and Sarejevo put Lennon's side into the UEFA Europa League group stage for the seventh time. This is the tenth successive season that the club are competing in a UEFA group stage and their seventh autumn series in the UEFA Europa League, three of their six previous participations having continued into the round of 32 – though never further.

• There were three wins out of three for Celtic at home in last season's group stage, against CFR Cluj (2-0), Lazio and Rennes (3-1). However, the club's last three eliminations from UEFA competitions have all come after defeats at Celtic Park – against CFR (3-4) in last season's UEFA Champions League third qualifying round and subsequently against Copenhagen and Ferencváros.

Milan
• A sixth-placed finish in Serie A last term earned Milan a return to Europe after a one-season absence. Stefano Pioli's side beat Shamrock Rovers (2-0 a) and runaway Norwegian league leaders Bodø/Glimt (3-2 h) in their first two qualifying matches before dramatically capturing a place in the UEFA Europa League group stage by ousting Rio Ave 9-8 in a marathon penalty shoot-out after a 2-2 draw in Portugal.

• This is the seven-time European champions' third appearance in the UEFA Europa League group stage, all in the last four seasons. They topped their group in 2017/18 before advancing into the round of 16, where they were convincingly defeated by Arsenal (0-2 h, 1-3 a), but in 2018/19 they could only finish third in their section, eliminated by Olympiacos and Real Betis. It was the first time the Rossoneri had failed to qualify from their group in a UEFA competition since the second group stage of the 2000/01 UEFA Champions League, ending a sequence of 14 straight successes.

• Milan's away record in the UEFA Europa League, qualifiers included, is W6 D3 L3. In the group stage it is W2 D2 L2, the two wins both coming on Matchday 1 and the two defeats on Matchday 6.

Links and trivia
• Diego Laxalt joined Celtic on loan from Milan earlier this month. The Uruguyan international also played for Bologna, Empoli, Genoa and Torino in Serie A.

• Celtic's Olivier Ntcham played in Italy for Genoa between 2015 and 2017, scoring three goals in 37 Serie A games.

• Celtic skipper Scott Brown's first home appearance for the club in the UEFA Champions League group stage was that famous 2-1 win against Milan in 2007. He also played in all of the three subsequent defeats against the Rossoneri.

• Bhoys boss Lennon played for Celtic against Milan in all four of the 2004/05 and 2006/07 matches.

• Celtic and Milan are two of six former European Cup winners in this season's UEFA Europa League group stage, the others being Benfica (Group D), PSV Eindhoven (E), Feyenoord (K) and Crvena zvezda (L).
