Celtic will be looking to get off the mark after their opening Champions League group stage defeat when they entertain Italian side Lazio at Parkhead on Wednesday night. Celtic vs Lazio live stream
Following a 2-0 loss away to Feyenoord in the Netherlands on Matchday One, in which two quickfire red cards for Gustaf Lagerbielke and Odin Thiago Holm saw the Hoops end the match with 10-men, Brendan Rodgers’ side will aim to carry their impressive domestic form into Europe by bidding for a first group stage win since 2017 – and a first at home since 2013.
A last-gasp victory over Motherwell at Fir Park in their latest Scottish Premiership clash on Saturday ensured Celtic continued to build momentum as they stretched their lead over Glasgow rivals Rangers to seven points in the table.
The Scottish champions are arguably facing the Serie A outfit at the perfect time, with Lazio currently sitting in 16th place domestically. However, a win over Napoli and a dramatic 1-1 draw with fellow Group E hopefuls Atletico Madrid have handed Maurizio Sarri’s men a big confidence boost ahead of their visit to Glasgow’s East End.
European nights under the Celtic Park floodlights are often special occasions and Rodgers will hope his players can put on a strong performance and clinch maximum points to increase their chances of progressing in the competition in front of a rocking atmosphere.
