READ CELTIC VERDICT
Celtic’s strong travelling support will give the Hoops a boost in what is set to be a crucial fixture for both sides.
A win for Celtic coupled with victory for CFR Cluj against Rennes would mean both sides qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League, whilst also registering the Hoops’ first ever win on Italian soil.
Victory for Lazio however would move them to within a point of Celtic and keep their qualification hopes alive.
