In the group stages UEFA Europa League, Lazio is set to host Celtic at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Lazio enters this match having defeated AC Milan 2-1 at the San Siro in their previous outing. It was a very impressive match for Lazio as they controlled 54% of the ball and were the stronger side. Joaquin Correa and Ciro Immobile were both very impressive as both players scored for Lazio. It has been a good season for Lazio as they are 4th in Serie A but they must win this match to keep their Europa League hopes alive.
On the other side of the coin, Celtic continued their dominant form in Scotland as they defeated Hibernian 5-2 away from home in the Scottish League Cup. It was an outstanding performance by Celtic as they controlled 55% of the possession and had 20 shots. Celtic have been outstanding this season as they are top of their group in the Europa League and are in 1st place in the Scottish Premiership. A big result in Europe will be vital for Celtic and they will hope to win this match as it will secure the team a spot in the next round.
Celtic and Lazio played each other earlier in the competition. The match was played in Glasgow with Celtic winning 2-1. It was a close match with Christopher Jullien scoring the winning goal in the 89th minute. Lazio will feel unlucky that they didn’t get a point from the match.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Lazio to win this match. While Glasgow has some momentum having won at home, I don’t see them having enough quality to get a result in Rome. Lazio are a very strong side and they have been playing outstanding football over the past few months. I see Lazio leaving the Stadio Olimpico with all 3 points.
