Celtic v Lazio Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Scottish champions Celtic will be eager to get their first Champions League group points on the board when they entertain Serie A side Lazio at Parkhead tonight.

Celtic are setting the pace in the Scottish Premiership once again this season and are starting to look uncatchable, even at this very early stage of the campaign. Nevertheless, their naivety on the European circuit was plain for all to see in their opening Champions League group match last month, the Scottish champions capitulating to Feyenoord after conceding from a free kick before half-time. The Hoops found themselves down to nine men and it was only a matter of time before they conceded a second, Brendan Rodgers’ men losing by a scoreline of 2-0.

Of their 37 games in the Champions League, Celtic have managed just a single clean sheet and their home form could prove pivotal in this season’s tournament. As such, ending a ten-game run without a group stage victory will be very much a priority this evening. Of their last ten games on home soil in the Champions League, the Hoops have lost eight while they haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last fifteen on home soil in this competition.

Lazio’s unbeaten run in the group stages of the Champions League was extended to seven games thanks to a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in their tournament opener, keeper Ivan Provedel striding forward in the 95th minute to score a dramatic late equaliser and rescue a point for the Serie A outfit. Nevertheless, the Italian side have won just one of their last sixteen away matches in the Champions League with ten defeats during this time and this will give the home side some hope ahead of tonight’s outing.

That said, Celtic have been utterly unconvincing in European competition for some time and they will have some absentees in defence for tonight’s clash. Lazio have been poor on their travels in this competition but we envisage the visitors ending this drought with a win in the east end of Glasgow.

 

Back Lazio to win at best odds of 37/20
