Celtic travel to Lille in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday. The Scottish champions have hit a bad run of form with Lille expected to take advantage at Stade Pierre Mauroy.

Lille Form


Lille are undefeated in nine matches this season and sit top of Ligue 1 alongside PSG. They hit top form in late September with wins against Nantes (2-0), at Strasbourg (3-0) and against Lens (4-0).

Christophe Galtier’s side won 4-1 at Sparta Prague in their opening UEFA Europa League match. Sparta were reduced to 10 men in the 23rd minute, Lille taking advantage with Turkish winger Yusuf Yazici hitting a hat-trick and Jonathan Ikoné on target.

Lille’s last match was a 1-1 draw at Nice on Sunday. Burak Yilmaz equalised in the second half, a draw a fair result in an even match.

Lille Team News


Lille have a full strength squad available. Galtier is unlikely to make many changes but Yusuf Yazici is in contention to start after his hat-trick in Prague.

Celtic Form


Celtic had won eight straight matches in all competitions but have hit some poor form in recent weeks. The Scottish champions lost 2-0 at home to Old Firm rivals Rangers with the Hoops failing to register a shot on target.

Neil Lennon’s side fell to a 3-1 home defeat against AC Milan to get their Europa League group stage underway. Mohamed Elyounoussi made it 2-1 in the 76th minute before conceding in added time.

Celtic’s last match was a 3-3 draw at Aberdeen. Callum McGregor equalised, goals to Leigh Griffiths and Ryan Christie establishing a 3-2 lead, but another goal conceded in added time resulted in two points down the drain.

Celtic Team News


Goalkeeper Vasilios Barkas is doubtful with a back problem, Scott Bain could continue on goal. 

Centre-back Christopher Jullien is injured alongside wingers Mikey Johnston and James Forrest.

Central defenders Nir Bitton and Hatem Elhamed both tested positive for coronavirus during the international break and are doubtful.

French striker Odsonne Edouard could make the Celtic squad after testing positive for coronavirus two weeks ago.
