Lazio vs Celtic odds
*Odds correct as of 10:45 on November 27
As we enter the penultimate round of Champions League group stage fixtures it’s go hard or go home time for Celtic. They are rooted to the bottom of the table with just one point from their opening four games. Celtic sit six points behind second-placed Lazio and are five off Feyenoord in third, which means they need to win to even stand a chance of qualifying for either the Champions League last 16 or Europa League knockout round play-offs. Anything but a win and Celtic’s European journey will be over for another season.
Lazio, as mentioned, are second in the group and will be hoping to tighten their grip on a spot in the last 16. It could actually be achieved this week if results go their way. If Lazio beat Celtic and Feyenoord drop points against Atletico Madrid, then Lazio’s place in the last 16 will be confirmed, with just top spot to be decided. The Italian side have only lost once in the Champions League this season, beaten by Feyenoord in their third game, but they bounced back with a 1-0 victory last time out.

Lazio vs Celtic Bet-Builder tip
Champions League history doesn’t shine well on Celtic getting anything from this game. Brendan Rodgers has lost seven of his last eight games as manager in the Champions League, while also winning just one of his last 21 in the competition. Ciro Immobile will be among the Lazio players hoping to find the net, aiming to build on his record of six goals in nine games for the club in the Champions League. But Celtic may also find the net, with all three games against Lazio having seen both teams score.
