Europa League: Milan Wins Against Celtic 4-2 To Enter Last 32

AC Milan came back from two goals down against Celtic to claim a 4-2 victory that sent them into the Europa League knockout phase on Thursday as they were among 14 teams to progress in Europe's second-tier competition.

AllNews understands that Villarreal, Braga, Dinamo Zagreb, Red Star Belgrade, PSV Eindhoven, Granada, Bayer Leverkusen, Slavia Prague, Rangers, Tottenham Hotspur, Antwerp, Lille, and Benfica joined Milan in booking their places in the last 32 on the night.

The Europa League match would be the second match Milan would win without Zlatan Ibrahimovic after he limped off against Napoli in the Serie A.

Earlier at the San Siro, where Tom Rogic and Odsonne Edouard had fired Celtic 2-0 ahead within 15 minutes, Milan's progress from Group H was threatening to get complicated.

The hosts responded in devastating fashion though with Hakan Calhanoglu and Samu Castillejo scoring in quick succession.

Youngsters Jens Petter Hauge and substitute Brahim Diaz struck after the break to finish off the Scottish champions who have only won twice in their last 11 games in all competitions.

While Celtic's season goes from bad to worse, Glasgow rivals Rangers are flying. They battled to a 3-2 home win against Standard Liege to guarantee progress from Group D along with Benfica who thumped visitors Lech Poznan 4-0.

Roma nailed down the top spot in Group A with a 3-1 home win over second-placed Young Boys but Napoli must wait another week to secure their progress after drawing 1-1 at AZ Alkmaar.

It left the Naples club top of Group F with 10 points but they cannot afford to lose at home to Real Sociedad in their final game as Sociedad and Alkmaar both have eight points.
