Celtic will look to get their first Champions League win of the season as they welcome Lazio to Celtic Park on Wednesday evening. We’ve picked out some of the best markets on offer in this European clash that might be worth backing.

Celtic vs Lazio Betting Tips

  • Celtic and both teams to score – 4/1
  • Matt O’Riley to score anytime – 9/2

Team news

Celtic will be without Gustaf Lagerbielke and Odin Thiago Holm due to suspension. Cameron Carter-Vickers, Stephen Welsh, Liel Abada and Maik Nawrocki are all unavailable through injury.

Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri has no fresh injury concerns heading into Tuesday’s fixture in Parkhead.

Celtic and both teams to score (Yes) @ 4/1

On paper, this is a really difficult match for Celtic, but Lazio have not had the best of starts to the 2023-24 season. They have won just two of their opening seven Serie A fixtures as they languish in 16th. Sarri’s side were also fortunate to come away with a draw against Atletico Madrid in their Champions League opener, so Celtic will sense they have a great opportunity to win their first Champions League home match in over a decade.

The Hoops’ tails are up after a stunning last-gasp victory over Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership at the weekend, and Brendan Rodgers will look to carry on that momentum into Europe, in which Celtic have struggled in recent campaigns. Lazio appear to be vulnerable right now, while Celtic have confidence. This is a great opportunity for the Bhoys in Green to end the rut and return Celtic Park to a feared fortress across Europe.

Matt O’Riley to score anytime @ 9/2

As Celtic’s confidence is high heading into this fixture, so too are the players. One figure with confidence higher than most is midfielder Matt O’Riley, who scored the late winner at the weekend. The Danish Under-21 international has been in fine form in front of goal this term, scoring five goals in his first seven appearances in the league.

O’Riley has netted in his last three league appearances but he is yet to taste a goalscoring moment on the Champions League stage. The former MK Dons man is on fire right now, and the positions he takes up in games when his team attacks allows him to get into excellent areas to get on the scoresheet.

While Lazio’s defenders will be preoccupied with Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda, O’Riley can ghost in and strike out of nowhere with his late arrivals into the box.
