Celtic vs Benfica

Celtic after a few years of break is back in the group stage of the Champions League. However, Neil Lennon’s team comes to the match in a not best condition. Before match against Benfica, Celtic has lost a number of key players like Samaras and Kayalom.


Captain of the team Brown will start from first minutes, in spite of some problems. The participation in the match of Ledley is under doubt.


Benfica has its own problems. Maxi Pereira and Luizao can’t play due to the disqualification. In the last three days of the transfer window the team lost a number of key players like two central midfielders Javi Garcia and Axel Witsel. Carlos Martins has injury. Generally, Jorge Jesus has to think seriously about the choice of the main squad.

But there is some good news! Gaitan who didn’t play this season, has returned from injury.


In the defensive line Maxi Pereira and Luizao will be replaced by Miguel Vitor and Zhardel. But the loss of two key players in the middle of the field is very difficult to compensate.


Celtic line-up: Forster, Lustig, Wilson, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Forrest, Wanyama, Brown, Commons, Hooper, Miku.
