Celtic vs Lazio Preview
Lazio have struggled for defensive consistency and travel to Glasgow for their Europa League clash on Thursday at hardly the best time for them, where slip-ups at the back had them chasing results in thriller draws against Bologna (2-2) and Atalanta (3-3) in their last two outings.
Biancocelesti opened the competition in Group E with a 2-1 loss at Cluj but bounced in front of the home fans since, beating Rennes (2-1) with second-half comeback and goals from Milinkovic-Savic and Ciro Immobile. They will now hope to break into the top 2 once again, promising a strong challenge at Celtic Park.
Celtic have been very tough to beat here, though, and while they’ve struggled to turn away clashes their way, the 6-0 win over Ross County over the weekend sure is indicative of such form. They’ve connected seven wins in a row since mid-August and keeping hold of the top in Group E will now depend on it.
Bhoys have been scoring numbers of goals in front of the home fans and we’ve seen them net 19 in the last five games. Although Lazio could prove to be a different challenge altogether, we feel the visitors will have to cope in the final third if they’re to snatch any points on the day.
We will thus stick our necks out for a thriller Draw in Glasgow, which comes at 5/2 with William Hill and has caught the eye of many value seekers already. We’ve seen both scoring (and conceding) quite regularly and we now hope for another such occasion.
With that in mind, going for a Yes on Both teams to score comes at 4/6 with bet365 and looks like a solid approach to the fixture by itself. We certainly hope to thrills and we’ve seen many in the know already backing to see in-form attacking lines at work once again.
