Celtic vs Lazio Betting Preview | 24 Oct 2019

Making a return to winning ways after returning from the international break, Celtic will now look to extend on what is becoming an eye-catching European run when Serie A giants Lazio make the trip to Glasgow on Thursday night.

Putting six past Ross County over the weekend and also reclaiming their spot at the top of the Premiership in some style, the Hoops have also picked up four Europa League points out of a possible six and find themselves sat at the top of Group E.

On the flip side, while Lazio might also be dreaming of landing a spot in the knockout stage come December, the Italian giants have continued to show some European issues on foreign soil.

Suffering a 2-1 defeat away at CFR Cluj in their Group E opener, they have remarkably lost five of their last six Europa League appearances, including three consecutive defeats away from the Stadio Olimpico.

You might be interested to know that Celtic can be found at 6/4 with Bet365 to heap more European misery on Lazio in midweek.

Celtic – The Europa League surprise package?

Although most across Scotland were shocked to see the defending champions suffered a 2-0 loss away at Livingston prior to the international break, Neil Lennon’s men really bounced back in some style.

Picking up a 6-0 win over Ross County over the weekend, the former Hibernian boss has seen his side once again climb into pole position to reclaim their domestic crown and they have also enjoyed a bright run in Europe’s second tournament.

Now sat at the top of Group E and holding a one-point buffer over Wednesday’s guests, you might be interested to know that the Hoops can be found at 5/2 with Coral to secure top spot come December.

One man to watch out for in midweek will be France U21 international, Odsonne Édouard.

Bagging five goals in his two matches while away on international duty and also finding the net over the weekend, the 21-year-old also opened his Europa League account against CFR Cluj earlier in the month.

Édouard can be found at 8/5 with 888Sport to extend on his purple patch on Thursday night.

Lazio’s European headache

After battling from three goals down to snatch a point off of Atalanta on home soil over the weekend, Lazio are desperate to find some much-needed stability.

Suffering a shock 2-1 defeat away at CFR Cluj to open their Group E campaign last month, Simone Inzaghi’s men are enduring a woeful run that has seen them lose five of their last six Europa League matchups.

You might be interested to know that the former Italian champions have now conceded five goals in their last two appearances and can be found at 5/4 with Bet365 to ship over 1.5 goals in midweek.

If Lazio are to pick up a much-needed European victory on Thursday, then fans around the Stadio Olimpico will be looking for leading marksman Ciro Immobile to spearhead their charge.

Bagging a brace over the weekend, the Italian international has scored six goals in his last four matches across all competitions.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker is pencilled in at 5/4 with Bet365 to once again find the net at Celtic Park.
