Lazio hosts Celtic at the Stadio Olimpico in a game from Group E of Europa League. We are going to discuss this fixture during our free Europa League predictions for today.
Lazio desperately need points at the moment, because they are third in this group with 3 points won so far. In three matches so far, the Eagles have a record of one win and two losses. Their only win so far came against Rennes at the Olimpico.
When Lazio visited Celtic at the Celtic Park two weeks ago, the Scottish side enjoyed a 2-1 win. Manuel Lazzari opened the score for the Italians five minutes before the halftime break, but in the second half Celtic turned the game around with goals from Ryan Christie and Christopher Jullien.
Now Simone Inzaghi’s boys are aware that if they want to progress in Europa League and reach the knockout phase, they must win this game. If Lazio get the support of the stands at the Olimpico and show their best football, it’s going to be a tough experience for the Scottish team.
During the weekend Lazio visited Milan in the Serie A and achieved a 2-1 win over the Rossoneri. Ciro Immobile and Joaquin Correa scored for the visitors.
It will be curious to see Simone Inzaghi’s approach for this match. If he decides to use some of his best players, the Eagles will have an even bigger chance to clinch the win.
Celtic are the leaders in this group with 7 points won so far. The Brits are the only unbeaten team in the group so far with two wins and one draw.
In the Scottish Premiership Celtic are leading the standings with 28 points won so far. In their last game in the league Neil Lennon’s boys enjoyed a 5-2 win over Hibernian.
That’s our Europa League predictions for the match between Lazio and Celtic on Thursday. It’s going to be interesting to follow what’s going to happen in the Italian capital.
