[Champions League] Lazio Vs Celtic Prediction

November 28, 2023

On the fifth matchday of Group E in the 2023/2024 Champions League, Lazio will be the host to Celtic at the Olimpico. This match is noteworthy because, in the past three encounters, the score was consistently 2-1. Despite Celtic's two victories, current predictions suggest that Lazio will not suffer a defeat this time around.

The prediction in question is closely tied to the lackluster performance of Brendan Rodgers' team in this season's Champions League. The team has only managed to earn one point from four matches thus far. Their most recent defeat was a 0-6 loss to Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. In contrast, Lazio has been able to secure two victories, one draw, and only one loss.

However, it must be acknowledged that Celtic faced significant challenges when playing in Italy. Throughout their last 14 visits, they were only able to emerge victorious a single time. The remaining matches resulted in 3 draws and 10 losses for The Hoops. These statistics serve as a clear indication that Italy is not a welcoming place for the Scottish giants.

Currently, Lazio holds a total of six points, which secures their position in second place. They trail behind Atletico by one point and are one point above Feyenoord. Conversely, Celtic is struggling in the competition, residing in last place with only one point to their name.

If they beat Celtic and Feyenoord loses to Atletico in the other match, Lazio will almost surely qualify for the round of 16 with one encounter left. 

Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Patric, Gila, Marusic; Guendouzi, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Pedro

Prediction: Lazio - Celtic = 1 - 1
