Lazio v Celtic Preview
Lazio have been average in Serie A this season seventeen points from thirteen games. That puts them 11th in the table. However, the Champions League has proved better for them with the side second with seven points from four games following a 1-1 draw against Atletico, a 1-2 victory over Celtic, a 3-1 defeat against Feyenoord and a 1-0 win over the same opposition.
Lazio’s most recent outing came against Salernitana on Saturday in the Serie A. Despite taking a lead into the break courtesy of a Ciro Immobile penalty, the Roman side would fall to a 2-1 defeat after conceding two second-half goals despite dominating possession.
Victory here would secure Lazio qualification to the Round of 16 if Atletico Madrid beat Feyenoord in Group E’s other game.

Celtic have been at their dominant best this season. They are undefeated in their opening fourteen league games with eleven wins and three draws. That puts them eight points clear of Rangers at the top of the table.
Despite domestic domination Celtic have had another poor European campaign with one point from their opening four games. Their results in the Champions League so far have been a 2-0 defeat against Feyenoord, a 1-2 defeat against Lazio, a 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid and most recently lost 6-0 in the reverse fixture.
At the weekend Celtic were held to a 1-1 home draw against Motherwell despite 81% possession.
Brendan Rodgers’s team will want to give a good account of themselves in Italy this Tuesday having been humbled 6-0 in Madrid last time out in Europe. This shows the difference in levels across both competitions.
Celtic are bottom of the group and need a victory here to stand any chance of Europa League Qualification.

Key Players To Watch
Felipe Anderson – Lazio
Former West Ham winger Felipe Anderson (30) is one of the main attacking threats in the side with one goal and five assists in sixteen games across all competitions this season. The silky Brazilian is a joy to watch.
Liam Scales – Celtic
What a ride it has been for the Irishman! Went from League of Ireland First Division Football five years ago and had a period with Shamrock Rovers before signing for Celtic in 2021. It took him a while to break through at the club first spending a productive season with Aberdeen last season.
However, Scales has broken through at the club this season and has been brilliant so far cumulating in when Scales made his Senior International debut with Ireland on the 13th of October where they lost 2-0 to Greece.
Lazio v Celtic Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Lazio 2-0 Celtic
Lazio have had a solid Champions League campaign so far and now knows a victory here would put them in a fantastic position to qualify with only a handful of games remaining.
Celtic on the other hand have had a very poor campaign and know nothing less than a victory here and they won’t even get the consolation of Europa League qualification from the group stages.
Comfortable Lazio win
Best Bet: Under 3.5 Goals and Lazio Win 13/10
