Celtic will travel to the Stadio Olimpico to take on Italian heavyweights Lazio in their fourth game in the Group E of the Europa League. The Hoops are currently on top of the table, and surprisingly Lazio are languishing on the third spot. Lennon’s men had already gotten the better of their Italian opponents in the reverse fixture as they won 2-1 at Parkhead.
The Hoops are going through a purple patch at the moment as they have been winning games on a canter off late. However, Lazio away will be a tough challenge for the Bhoys. But the Scottish heavyweights should be high on confidence, and they might just pull off an Italian job on their opponents.
Team News: Leigh Griffiths has resumed training, but he might still need some work to be match fit. Vakoun Issouf Bayo is expected to miss out. Michael Johnston is also closing in on a return after missing close to two months of action. Centre back Jozo Simunovic is a long term absentee, and he is unlikely to feature this year. Goalkeeper Scott Bain is also expected to miss out.
