Celtic 6/4 to beat Lazio in Thursday’s Europa League showdown

Competition: Europa League

Market: Celtic win

Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365

Enjoying an eye-catching run in this year’s Europa League, Group E leaders Celtic will welcome Lazio to Glasgow on Thursday night.

Starting with the hosts, returning from the international break with a thumping 6-0 win over Ross County over the weekend, Neil Lennon will be excited to make a return to winning ways. Once again reclaiming their spot at the top of the Premiership, fans around Glasgow will be boosted by what is also becoming an eye-catching European run. Snatching a point off of Rennes on foreign soil and climbing to the top of Group E, they’re now unbeaten in their last four Europa League appearances, winning three of those contests. With their sights set on booking a spot in the knockout stage, Celtic have also secured back-to-back Europa League victories in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, while Lazio may have bagged three late goals to snatch a point off of Atalanta over the weekend, the former Italian champions have endured another inconsistent spell. Winning just one of their last four domestic matchups, including a shock 2-1 loss away at CFR Cluj to open their Group E campaign, they have continued to show some glaring issues away from the Stadio Olimpico. Losing three of their last four matches on the road and not recording an away victory since the end of August, Lazio have also lost each of their last three Europa League matches on foreign soil.
