Present in the Champions League last year after finishing in 2nd place in Ligue 1 in 2018-2019, Lille was not able to perform well. Not at the level, the LOSC took only ‘one point in 6 games and therefore logically finished in the last place in his group behind Valencia, Chelsea and Ajax. In the league, the Mastiffs had a consistent season but missed the Champions League by a small point when there were ten days to go when the season was definitively interrupted. Very interesting since the resumption, the Northerners are still unbeaten (5 wins and 3 draws) in Ligue 1. 2nd in the standings, they remain on a good point brought back from Nice last Sunday (1-1). During the first day of the Europa League, Lille easily won on the lawn of Sparta Prague (1-4).
Last year, Celtic Glasgow won yet another national league title after overtaking Rangers in the second half of the season. This allowed the team to play the play-offs for the Champions League but the Glasgow players did not pass the obstacle Ferencvaros, like last season. Subsequently, they took out Riga (0-1) then Sarajevo (0-1) to qualify for this C3 group stage. In the league, Neil Lennon’s men are currently 2nd in the standings. Less to their advantage since the international break, they remain on a loss against the Rangers (0-2) and a draw in Aberdeen last weekend (3-3). Last week, Celtic lost their first Europa League game at home against AC Milan (1-3).

For Celtic, it is important to point out the absences of offensive executives Forrest and Edouard, of the very promising young winger Johnston and potential holders Jullien (ex Toulouse) and Bitton. In the absence of Edward, Leigh Griffiths could occupy the point of the attacker. French midfielder Ntcham should be established.
