Lazio vs Celtic
Date: Thursday, 7 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Celtic has been a surprise topper of the group. The presence of teams from the Serie A, and Ligue 1 had led pundits to anticipate an entirely different order of squads after the first three match-days. However, the Scottish contingent made full use of the situations presented in front of them, and as of now, stands a great opportunity to make it to the next round.
Sure, they are on the road this Thursday and are taking on the famed Lazio. But one factor that works out in their favor is the form the Italians have shown in the competition so far.

Lazio vs Celtic Prediction
Neil Lennon’s men had faced a slight hiccup in their domestic league and were overtaken by the Rangers for a short period of time. But they learned from their mistakes and made up for it in a fantastic manner. As of now, they are on a winning streak of three in the Premiership and have pushed back arch-rivals Rangers to the second spot.
Going on, they have won the previous five fixtures and remained unbeaten in an extraordinary 41 of their former 44 games. Moreover, they recorded a combined scorecard of 19-3 from their last five match-ups, and remained invincible in 22 of their last 24 battles on the road.
Furthermore, they scored four or more goals in their preceding two road trips, and most importantly, won against Lazio the last time they locked horns.
On the other hand, the Serie A outfit lost against both the supposed minnows in the group and one more of the like would probably be enough to put to halt their continental dream.
With Lennon’s men on the verge of qualification, we can count on them to raise the bar when it’s about to mater the most. As such, a Double Chance on the reigning Premiership champions should bring considerable returns.
However, take into account the very-recent rejuvenation of Lazio, and their home advantage. Moreover, with the squad being a part of the comparatively superior Italian top division, the chances for a clean sheet for the guests look bleak.
