Lazio News and Form – Can Lazio find some away form at Celtic?

This will be the first time that Lazio have faced up to Scottish opposition. They are sitting a point back from Celtic in the pool standings and the reason for that was them suffering a shock loss against Cluj. The Italians redeemed themselves when they fought back from being a goal down to beat Rennes. So they have been far from perfect.

Lazio won last season’s Coppa Italia which is why they are here. They have qualified from each for their previous six Europa League group stage campaign. The away form of Lazio has to be highlighted here because it is practically non-existent. Lazio are W2 L7 in their last nine away games in Europe. They have lost four of their last five Europa League group stage away games as well.

Celtic v Lazio Predictions

Celtic to win: There are certainly weaknesses in Lazio’s away game plans in Europe. The numbers speak for themselves as they have lost so many of their recent such fixtures. Even though this is a tough game for Celtic, there should be something for them to get stuck into. Home win.
