Lille vs Celtic Prediction and Betting Preview 29 Oct 2020

Here's our Lille vs Celtic Prediction analysis: Lille vs Celtic PredictionSeeking their first points of the juvenile Europa League season, Celtic will take their game to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to tackle French giants Lille on Thursday evening.
Match status: 2020/21 Europa League - Group Stage
Kick-off:
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Villeneuve d'Ascq)
Not the ideal start to the domestic campaign as they would have hoped for, Celtic have been forced to play second-fiddle to archrivals Rangers – who are leading the Scottish Premiership table. Failing to keep their wits about them, the Celts have been largely inconsistent this term.

With Rangers racing to the league title, Celtic have been playing catch-up with them for large parts of the campaign. They will need to re-access their play to get in their rhythm soon enough. For now, they have Lille awaiting them for a European clash in Hauts-de France.

Lille vs Celtic Team News

Galtier’s can count themselves very lucky to have made into the group stages of the Europa League, given they were pretty much average last season. However, with the campaign halted abruptly, Les Dogues found themselves in fourth-place.

This offered them a clear route to European football, where they will be competing with fellow top sides across the continent. This season, they have been sensational in the French Ligue 1, garnering a staggering 18 points from their opening eight fixtures.

In fact, they currently occupy second-spot on the log, level on points with defending champions Paris-Saint Germain. There is a real sense of belief at the club, as supporters believe they can go ahead to take the league title race right down to the wire.

Taking on tricky side Nice on the last matchday, Lille were made to bend over backwards to salvage a point as Yilmaz’s 58th-minute effort helped secure a hard-fought 1-1 draw. Their opening Europa League fixture saw them overcome Sparta Prague with ease, hitting the target four times.
Head coach Christophe Galtier will be hoping for more of the same when his boys take on Scottish outfit Celtic on matchday two. Celtic are currently not in the best shape, and struggling to string impressive results on the spin.

Likely to relinquish their Scottish Premiership title to Rangers this season, Celtic recorded a disappointing result last time out, as Aberdeen squeezed out a point from the tight grasps of the Hoops. The thriller ending 3-3, Lennon was left unimpressed as the referee brought the game to a close.

Also, Celtic began their Europe League journey disappointingly as AC Milan scored an emphatic 3-1 victory over them. Against another top side this week, the Celts will have their work cut-out to grab a desirable result come fulltime.

Injured or Suspended Players

Lille: No injuries or suspensions.
Celtic: Mikey Johnston, James Forrest, Christopher Jullien and Vasilis Barkas.

Lille vs Celtic Predictions

Celtic have always been a top side, perhaps the best in Scotland. However, their European record over the last few years have been pretty disturbing. They failed to make it past the last-32 last term, as they were knocked out by FC Copenhagen. The Celts are likely to struggle again this time around, and may not even progress through the group phases. Lennon’s charges are in poor form heading here. As such, count on Lille to carry the day.
