Lazio vs Celtic Prediction: 07.11.2019 Europa League Match
We will have an opportunity to witness a set of Europe’s most passionate fans supporting their teams in an attempt for both sets of clubs to reach the knockout phase of the Europa League. Olimpico is expected to be full tomorrow at 18:55 when Lazio meet Celtic in Group E of the Europa League. Although the per match atmosphere got too heated when two Celtic fans were stabbed by Lazio’s hooligans, we have no doubt that the things will go on well on the pitch.
Laziali are welcoming the Celtcs in a good mood, after getting a huge win against AC Milan on Sunday night. This victory saw them string together three Serie A triumphs in a row, placing themselves at the fourth, just a point behind the second-placed Roma. The story is a bit different in the Europa League, though. Inzaghi’s men won just once, losing the other two matches.
Crisis in their ranks
Despite the domestic success, things are a bit tense in Lazio. Team’s manager, Simone Inzaghi is on bad terms with the club’s top goalscorer and the best player, Ciro Immobile. The relationship didn’t get any better when Inzaghi, once again, subbed off Ciro in the Milan match to give an opportunity to Felipe Caicedo, despite the Italian striker scoring the first goal of the match for Laziali.
However, the pair will have to put their rift behind them, as the threat of leaving the European competition is real this time around. The hosts have no choice but to go for all three points – which they are more than capable of doing with Inzaghi at the helm. Inzaghi already declared that he’ll put out the best team he has, unlike the first meeting between the two sides, where, among others, Immobile was left out of the starting eleven. A big blow could be the injury of Milan clash hero, Joaquin Correa, who is yet uncertain to play today.
The Italian Job
Celtic are on the opposite side of things in this group, entering the match relaxed, knowing they collected seven points in the opening six matches.
Boli Bolingoli and Rogic are definite to miss the Lazio clash, with Griffits and Mikey Johnston out of action for a while now.
It’s worth pointing out that Celtic are dominating their domestic championship, with 34 goals in 11 matches with Odsonne Edouard as the main attacking plug this season, already collecting seven goals to his name.
In a match where both teams have their calculations of success, the hosts simply need the three points to stay alive in Europe. Nothing except the win will satisfy the home side, and Simeone Inzaghi already announced that he’s starting with the best he’s got.
As the guests struggle with injuries a bit, the weakened Celtic side will have a hard time fighting off a potent Lazio attack going for it all. The odds on Lazio are solid, and you should take advantage of the Italian team having an imperative to win tomorrow.
Prediction: Lazio vs Celtic – 1. First team to win.
