Lazio vs Celtic Betting Preview | 7 Nov 2019

With a League Cup final against Rangers to look forward to next month, Celtic will now turn their attentions back to European qualification when they make the trip to the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday evening.

Putting five past Hearts in a seven-goal thriller on the road over the weekend, Neil Lennon’s men are in the midst of a five-match winning run since returning from the international break.

On the flip side, while Celtic might be sat in pole position to secure an automatic route to the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, Lazio are drastically searching for three European points.

While the former Italian champions may have won their last three Serie A appearances, they do hold some unpleasant memories about their trip to Celtic Park a fortnight ago.

With Thursday’s guests landing a dramatic 2-1 win in Glasgow, you might be interested to know that the Scottish champions can be found at 9/2 with Ladbrokes to land back-to-back shock victories in midweek.

Lazio’s European headache

Picking up an eye-catching 2-1 win away at fellow former heavyweights AC Milan over the weekend, there is no doubt that Head Coach Simone Inzaghi will be desperate for his side to build off of that result.

Enjoying a three-match winning run since their defeat away in Glasgow a fortnight ago, fans around the Stadio Olimpico will be looking for the red-hot Ciro Immobile to spearhead their charge.

Once again finding the net at the San Siro on Sunday, the Italian international has been Lazio’s standout performer entering November.

Already bagging 15 goals across all formats and leading the Serie A goalscoring charts, he has also landed five goals in his last four appearances and can be found at 10/11 with Paddy Power to extend that run in midweek.

Sadly for Inzaghi, while his side might be enjoying a free-scoring run, their Europa League performances are coming under increasing scrutiny.

Now sat three points adrift of CFR Cluj and that lucrative second spot, the Italians have recorded just a single victory in any of their previous seven European outings.

Celtic flying high

Putting in another free-scoring performance against Hearts over the weekend, Celtic are a side arguably enjoying their brightest run since reappointing former boss Neil Lennon.

Returning from the international break and enjoying a five-match winning run, fans around Glasgow have seen their side record a stellar 19 goals on that winning run.

Landing back-to-back Europa League victories in Group E and holding a one-point buffer over CFR Cluj, you might be interested to know that Celtic can be found at 1/1 with Coral to land top spot in Group E come next month.

While Lazio have one leading man enjoying an extended purple patch, the Hoops have their own starlet enjoying a dazzling run.

Bagging a brace against Hearts over the weekend, Southampton loanee Mohamed Elyounoussi has now scored six goals in his last five matches across all competitions.

With Lazio recording just a single clean sheet in any of their last seven attempts, you might be interested to know that Elyounoussi is penciled in at 9/2 with Paddy Power to extend on his eye-catching run on Thursday.
