Kjaer injured and has to be subbed off for Romagnoli. As I have said before, you shouldn't compromise the important tournaments on the EL. Better we're eliminated from this competition so we can focus on Serie A.

Ok...Celtic just wasted a big chance as Romagnoli pretty much just passed the ball to a Celtic player in our box ...Then I think Krunic lost the ball again in front of our box and the defence was not ready and caught by a simple pass to a Celtic player who clipped it over Donnarumma

The only thing of real value for the remainder of this game is that Romagnoli and Gabbia get some minutes together which could be vital. However that is not enough reason for me to watch the remainder of this game.

Hakan scored on a good fk. Plenty of time to get back in the game. Just now Castillejo scored...

Then Castillejo again with a horrible finish after the Celtic GK gifted us the ball...

I'm choosing pizza over persevering with a useless stream on this. Will keep an eye on livescore.

Whatever the result of this game though, I really hope Pioli puts out a completely second string eleven against Sparta.

What a goal by Hauge! Starting to show some of the same things that made us sign him! Really got some quick feet and ball control even in high tempo.

LOL, Hauge with a great assist and Diaz with a neat finish. Really good skill from both of them

Good reaction after going 2 goals down. Just now Diaz scores for 4 2. hauge with a beauty to make it 3 2 as well, now provides a good assist to Diaz.

BUT what a stupid decision to play Kjaer for the 17 game in a row... Ffs we have enough reserves to put a decent 11 there.

Lille leading 2-1 against Sparta. If things remains like this, we're through, but with no realistic chance to top the group.

And on that note I hope Pioli is not so boneheaded to put out any starters against Sparta. Play the likes of Colombo, Maldini, Duarte, Kalulu, Krunic, etc.

I am really worried about Theo getting injured. He has also played too many games and makes all these raids in high speed all game and often goes in with full power to reach a ball...

Agreed, Dalot needs to play more. We should have also kept Laxalt, unless he really had his mind set on choosing Scottish first-team football over the Milan bench/cup rotation.

So there we are, we're through to the next round. I hope we get Real Madrid.

Hauge show tonight; this hopefully will boost his confidence too; was really happy for him.

Kjaer injury made me pissed; shows how important was it to sign a defender on the last daynof the transfer window plus with the on going Covid scenario.

Yeah, really bad news, Kjær’s injury! Bad decision to let him play this one. I’ve been saying for a while he needs a rest.

What do you know, getting a win after going down by 2 goals.
Hope nothing serious of our commander injury.

Hauge for 4m, this chap will be a gem.

True; this sort of determination is much appreciated.

We got competion now on the left flank; Rebic/Leao/Hauge which is good to have.

One good thing of Castellijo is he goes deep down to defend at times; if the lad can improve his shooting skills and releasing ball at the right moments ( applies to Brahim as well ) then will be a treat to watch and counter attack or hold up play becomes effective.

Even before Celtic scored those two fluke goals we were dominating. I was not worried one bit.

This team plays real neat football. I love our counters where the wingers/wingbacks bomb forward.

A joy.

On Kjaer, Pioli already said he preferred to rest Romagnoli who hasn't been 100% yet. He had to choose of course. We unfortunately only have 3 fit CBs.

Man we really need to spend in January for CB, CF and less importantly vice Kessie.

Ps: How quickly is Kruno becoming the Brocchi of this team? 🤭
