Efe Ambrose on rescue mission for Celtic

26 November 2013, 13:09Israel Ojoko

Glasgow - Defender Efe Ambrose and his Celtic club are set for a rescue mission as they take on AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

Celtic have suffered a poor run of form in the group stage of the competition, occupying the bottom of Group H with just three points from four games.

Ambrose was in action for the Scottish side in their last Champions League game against Ajax on November 6, where they lost 1-0.

Celtic, who are the Scottish Premiership leaders defeated third-top Aberdeen 3-1 on Saturday, and approach Tuesday’s game with a record of 16 wins, five draws and only two defeats in the group stages of the Champions League.

Milan will arrive in Glasgow seeking their first away win in Europe this season, their last victory coming almost exactly a year ago, when they defeated Anderlecht 3-1 in Belgium to secure a place in the last 16.

That draw at home to 10-man Genoa - their fifth in 13 games - left the seven-time European champions 18 points behind Serie A leaders Roma and 14 behind the first Champions League qualifying place occupied by Napoli.

However, Ambrose and his team-mates still have a hope of qualifying from the group stage if Barcelona beat Ajax in the other game.

Barcelona top the group on ten points, and are trailed by Milan – five points, Ajax – four points and Celtic – three points, with two more games left to play.
