Celtic vs Lazio Betting Tips
Celtic are currently at the top of the group table, with four points after two rounds. They played a draw with Rennes in the first round, followed by a win over Cluj. Their next opponent, Lazio, is a team that has one point fewer. They lost in the first round to Cluj, but then won against Rennes in the second round. That said, both teams need points in order to get a step closer to the knockout stage of this competition.
There’s no doubt that Lazio are better than Celtic when player quality is concerned. However, both teams are famously much better at home than when playing on the road. In front of their supporters at the Celtic Park, the Hoops seem capable of giving run for the money to almost any team on the planet.
Speaking of their home form, Celtic have won every single game in the Scottish Premiership this season. And their good home run stretches much further back in the past. Still, this team is not too great at home when it comes to their performances in continental championships. The good news for Celtic fans is that Lazio are horrible on the road. This team has lost three out of the previous four away matches. And the one they didn’t lose was a draw with Bologna in Serie A.
Lazio are not doing too well in the Italian Serie A, although their form seems to be improving. Celtic, on the other hand, are at the very top of the table of the Premiership. The trouble is that their biggest rival, Rangers, are breathing by their necks. That said, Celtic cannot completely focus on the Europa League. Another problem why they won’t be able to give their utmost on Thursday is that they have some problems with injuries.
