Lazio vs Celtic Europa League
Friday, November 8th, 2019 @4:55 am, Stadio Olimpico.

Top of the table Celtic welcome Lazio to Glasgow for match day four of this season’s Europa League tournament.

Our Betting Tips

Celtic came from behind to beat Lazio 2-1 in match day three to make it two wins and a draw for Neil Lennon’s boys which leaves them top of Group E of this season’s Europa League tournament. The Roman club on the other hand, have just one win from their opening three games, a 2-1 defeat of Rennes at the Olimpico.

LAZIO TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE

Celtic have failed to score in just one of their 24 games played to date this season between, league, cup and European competition. Meanwhile, Lazio have drawn just one blank themselves this season in their 13 matches played, which was a 1-0 defeat at Inter in Serie A in September.

GAME TO END WITH OVER 3.5 GOALS

Celtic have yet to record a win in Italy against Serie A opposition in 12 attempts, while Lazio will be desperate to take the three points to keep their Europa League hopes alive.

LAZIO TO WIN BY A TWO GOAL MARGIN

Celtic can afford to lose this one and still have two more games left to cement their qualification into the knockout rounds, which could ease off some of the pressure on them. The Hoops could sit back and hit Lazio on the counterattack, a tactic that could see them get on the scoresheet as the Biancocelesti have conceded eight times in their last five games.

Statistics

Head to Head

The first and only meeting between these sides in European competition was last week’s 2-1 victory for the Hoops in Celtic Park. Manuel Lazzari had given the Biancocelesti the lead just before the break before goals from Ryan Christie and Christopher Jullien turned the tie around in favour of the Scottish champions.

Stats

  • Lazio beat Rennes 2-1 at the Olimpico in their first home game of this year’s Europa League group stage. The Biancocelesti lost their two previous home ties in the competition played last season, however, prior to those defeats they went unbeaten in their eight preceding home games.
  • Celtic have only won two of their last 18 Europa League away games, a 4-1 win at AIK and a 1-0 defeat of Rosenborg coming in their last four roads games in the competition. The Bhoys however, did draw eight of those trips away, including a 1-1 draw with Udinese on their second last trip to Italy in 2011. A 1-0 loss to Inter in 2015 was their last result on the Peninsula in the Europa League.
  • Lazio are unbeaten in their six games played to date this season between league, and European competition. Le Aquile beat Torino 4-0 in their last home match in Serie A and have won four of their six fixtures at the Olimpico, drawing the other two.
  • Celtic have only one of their last four away games played between league, cup and European competition, which was a 4-0 defeat of Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League at the weekend. The Hoops have only lost one of their 11 games played on the road this season, a 2-0 loss at Livingston at the beginning of October.

Our Prediction for Lazio vs Celtic

The match to end in a Lazio win.

Lazio will need to pick up the three points in this one if they intend to have any chance of progressing into the knockout rounds.  After a poor run of three games without a win the Biancocelesti have turned their fortunes around in Serie A with two wins in two, 2-1 at Fiorentina and 4-0 at home to Torino has eased some of the pressure off Coach Simone Inzaghi.

Celtic could seal automatic qualification to the next round with a win here against Lazio, however, the Hoops have yet to win in Italy in European qualification in 12 attempts, three draws and nine defeats coming in those meetings. Coach Neil Lennon will have to do without the services of striker Vakoun Bayo who is set to spend the next few months on the side lines after he picked up a knee injury.
