Head-to-head
The clubs are familiar foes having faced each other ten times prior to this campaign, all in the European Cup/UEFA Champions League. Milan recorded six victories to Celtic’s one in those matches, with four wins and a draw at home, and made it 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).

Milan’s overall European record against Scottish clubs is now W11 D3 L3. At home it is a dominant W7 D1, with 17 goals scored and just two conceded, although they have hosted no Scottish visitors other than Celtic since 1971.
