Lazio vs Celtic Match Preview
Lazio took the lead late in the first half but this still wasn’t enough to snatch points at Celtic Park as Neil Lennon’s men completed a second-half comeback through goals from Ryan Christie and Chris Jullien. They now host the Scottish rivals for their Matchday 4 clash in hope they can take revenge and break into the Group E top 2, desperate for points as they sit three behind 2nd placed Cluj.
Whites and Sky Blues have bounced since and now come into the match on the back of a narrow 1-2 win at AC Milan, which was their third in a row – after also beating Fiorentina (1-2) and Torino (4-0). They made the top 4 cut in Serie A and building on the performances in Europa League will be a crucial task for Simone Inzaghi and his men.
Celtic travel to Rome with a five-match winning streak and they promise another strong challenge, despite seeing the odds against them now as well. They beat Ross County (6-0) before and Aberdeen (0-4), St Mirren (2-0), and Hibs (2-5) in three outings since the sides’ head-to-head clash, which will have them in a good mood.
Bhoys have been scoring numbers of goals along the way but we feel breaking down Lazio will be more of a task now. They rediscovered their fine goalscoring form lately but we have seen struggles for consistency on the road, something the visitors still have to prove is behind them at this point.
We don’t see them doing so, though, and we feel Lazio will be too big of a challenge this time around. We do hope for a narrow occasion and with that in mind, we’re now sticking our necks out for a Home win to Nil, which comes at an eye-catching 15/8 with bet365.
We have seen Lazio keep three clean sheets in the last five home outings and this does serve as further evidence for such a bet. However, we expect Celtic to prove a tough nut themselves and this should mean few goals, as we also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with Paddy Power.
