Lazio Prediction – Can Lazio stay in the hunt?

Being 4 points adrift of Group E leaders, Celtic, prior to Thursday night’s clash with the Scottish champions, this encounter at the Stadio Olimpico becomes something of a ‘must win’ fixture for Lazio if they’re to reduce the points deficit and push themselves into the top two reckoning in Group E.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 8 matches overall in all competitions, Lazio seem to be in a reasonably strong position ahead of this crucial clash, but that 1 defeat was to tonight’s opponents at Celtic Park on Matchday 3 and an outcome which has opened up the gap between these two teams in the group.

Lazio do come into this fixture having won their last 3 matches on the trot with Serie A wins over Fiorentina, Torino and AC Milan, but their results in this Europa League campaign have been ordinary to say the least; defeats to CFR Cluj and Celtic either side of their 2-1 win against Rennes make tonight’s hosts a difficult team to back here.

Instead, with 6 of Lazio’s last 7 matches in all competitions seeing both teams score, this looks the best option as the hosts must press for a win tonight.

Celtic Prediction – Can Celtic take a step closer to knockout stage?

With 7 points to their name and unbeaten after their first 3 matches on Group E, group leaders Celtic will make their way over to Roma for Thursday night’s showdown with Lazio in confident mood.

Not only have The Hoops lost just 1 of their last 17 matches overall in all competitions including winning their last 5 matches on the trot, Celtic have also drawn 1-1 with Rennes before recording back-to-back wins against CFR Cluj and the aforementioned victory against Lazio.

Neil Lennon’s boys are therefore well placed to progress through to the knockout phase of the Europa League and their position will be strengthened further if they manage to at least avoid defeat here, or take all three points.

However, Celtic’s results away from home in this competition have been pretty average to say the least as the visitors have registered just 2 wins out of their last 18 matches on their travels at this level, so it may be prudent to veer away from backing Celtic in any capacity here.


Key-Facts – Lazio vs Celtic

  • 6 of Lazio’s last 7 matches in all competitions have seen both teams score
  • 4 of Celtic’s last 7 away ties in the EL have seen both teams score
  • The previous encounter resulted with both teams scoring as Celtic won 2-1


Betting Tips Verdict

Lazio need a win here but they’re also susceptible at the back while Celtic are very capable of hitting the Italians on the break – both teams to score here.
