Neil Lennon’s side will be looking for a morale boosting win after Italian giants, AC Milan, brushed them aside with a 3-1 win on the opening day.

However, Lille are in the midst of an incredible start to their season and are second in Ligue 1 on goal difference.

A 3-0 win over Sparta Prague last week will have done their confidence no harm and they will be hoping to continue on their merry way when Celtic pay a visit.

For the Scottish side, another loss could see them cut further adrift in the group, meaning a result is absolutely crucial.

Lille v Celtic team news

Lille: The French side has no injury news to report.

With a settled side riding the crest of a wave, it is unlikely that manager Christophe Galtier – unless he opts to rotate his squad – will make many changes.

Celtic: The Scots, meanwhile, will have to make do without James Forrest, Mikey Johnston, Christopher Julien and Vasilas Barkas.

Lennon has no choice but to go as strong as he can with his side in desperate need of a win.

Our prediction: Lille v Celtic

The Scottish side will be seen as the underdogs going into Thursday’s clash but, after an encouraging win at the weekend, will be hopeful of getting off the mark in Europe.

Lille, meanwhile, will simply be hoping for more of the same as they look to make it six points out of six on the continent.

It could prove to be a tricky trip for the plucky Scots.

Our prediction: Lille 2-0 Celtic
