Lazio will seek revenge against Celtic...
<div id=":s6"><div id=":s2"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Lazio vs Celtic</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Thursday, November 7, at Stadio Olimpico</strong></a></p><p>Celtic defied the odds to beat Serie A side Lazio 2-1 at Celtic Park on October 24. Since then Lazio have strung three consecutive victories together and climbed up to fourth in the table, so they should be feeling a lot more confident on Thursday. They thrashed Torino 4-0 in their last home game, and they have won back-to-back away matches against Fiorentina and AC Milan. Celtic have continued sweeping aside all their domestic rivals with ease, but there is a sense that they lack the quality to mount a genuine challenge for the Europa League title this season.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Lazio have some truly excellent players within their ranks. Every summer midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is linked with a move to Europe’s top clubs, but he remains a Lazio player. He has the ability to boss the midfield on Thursday, while playmaker Luis Alberto and forward Joaquin Correa are in fine form. In Ciro Immobile they boast a world-class striker who has the pace, movement and finishing ability to destroy any opposition. He has 15 goals in 15 games so far this season, and he has banged in four in his last three matches. He suffered a slight calf strain against Milan, and manager Simone Inzaghi could rest him for this match, which would be a blow for the hosts.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Playmaker Ryan Christie and centre-back Chrisophe Jullien were the heroes as Celtic delivered a rousing comeback to beat Lazio 2-1. Christie lost his place in the team to Tom Rogic in the league cup semi-final at the weekend, but he could return for this game. Scott Brown was a doubt for Saturday’s game against Hibs, but he played and scored twice in a 5-2 victory. Scott Sinclair no longer gets in the Celtic team, but Mohamed Elyounoussi and James Forrest provide plenty of industry down the flanks and Odsonne Eduoard is a dangerous striker.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>That 2-1 defeat to Celtic marked a turning point in Lazio’s season and they have been much improved ever since. It remains to be seen how seriously they are taking the Europa League, as they have lost two of three group games so far and they trail Celtic and Cluj. Yet if they start a strong team against Celtic they should win this game. You might want to wait to see the starting line-ups before placing a wager, but if Immobile, Correa, Alberto and Milinkovic-Savic are playing then a home win looks a good shout.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Coral">Lazio to win and over 1.5 goals at evens (2.00) with Coral</a></strong></p></div></div></div>
