Reason for Celtic vs Lille Predictions
This has to be Celtic’s worst season in recent years; the Scottish giants go to their final group game in the Europa League, having failed to win any of their first five. They will be hosting French side Lille, who seek a win to finish top of Group H. Celtic have so far managed one point in the group, and Lille has 11 points. While Lille is already guaranteed a place in the second round, Celtic cannot rise from the foot of the group and head to this game without a win in their last five matches. Celtic have two wins, six losses, and one clean sheet in their previous 12 games, but have scored in 10 of their last 12 games. The Glasgow giants have conceded two goals or more in nine of their previous 12 matches and head here winless in their past three home matches. In four of their last five games at home, Celtic have trailed and lost three, but they have a sparkle in Mohamed Elyounoussi, who has scored three goals in their last five home matches. The team has struggled this season, and it has been bad in the Europa League, with four losses in their five games in the competition. Scott Brown is an experienced midfielder, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from him. Fans love this man. Mohamed Elyounoussi enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
Lille hopes they can bag three points here to secure the top spot in this group, with Milan, who are just a point behind them, set to face third-placed Sparta Praha, who have nothing to play for. The French side has booked three wins in the last five matches and is unbeaten in the run. However, Lille has no clean sheet in their last four games and has recorded just two in the previous 11 games. They have one loss and eight wins in their last 15 matches and heading to this game, they have scored two goals or more in three of their last five games. In each of their last 15 games, Lille has scored, and six of their last ten have produced over 2.5 goals. Despite everything, Lille has not won in their last two away matches but are unbeaten in their last five Europa League matches, having won three. Burak Yilmaz is a great striker, he has the experience and is expected to score as many goals as possible this season. Jonathan Ikone is a great player, and many teams are interested in this guy. He has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. He is the future of French football.
It will be an exciting clash in which both sides will have a chance to win. However, the hosts have to make significant changes in their team, and that could be a chance for the guest to win.
We can expect a great fight between these two teams, and both should be able to score. We don’t think the nets will remain still after 90 minutes.
