Apart from Celtic and Lyon, Italy’s AC Milan is the third team participating in the tournament with none of the visiting teams taking part in the competition before. Celtic will be playing Lyon in the first match followed by Arsenal against AC Milan in the next.
Manager Arsene Wenger will be hopeful of making a couple more signings before the start of the tournament with Arsenal already having signed Marouane Chamakh and Laurent Koscielny. But with William Gallas and Mikael Silvestre both being released by the club this summer, Wenger is still looking for another defender and a goalkeeper.
AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri on the other hand is yet to make a serious foray into the transfer market Mario Yepes being the only major arrival to the squad on a free transfer while Marco Amelia has been signed on a loan transfer.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon has been a busy man with his club having signed four new players so far this summer including Efrain Juarez who impressed for Mexico in the World Cup. Lennon will be aware that his side has a big challenge on hand if they are to have any hopes of wresting the league title back from Rangers.
Claude Puel has managed to hold on to his job at Lyon thanks to a late push that saw his team climb up from sixth to second in the league table. Puel will be hoping for a far better performance from his side this season but is confident that he has all the right players with Jimmy Briand being the only arrival at the club so far.
The schedule for this season’s Emirates Cup is as follows:
July 31: Celtic vs Lyon
Arsenal vs AC Milan
August 1: AC Milan vs Lyon
Arsenal vs Celtic
