Probable line-ups: Celtic-Lazio

first_imgLazio must do without Luis Alberto against Celtic in the Europa League this evening, while Ciro Immobile is expected to be rested. Luis Alberto is struggling with a muscle strain, so veteran Marco Parolo should come into central midfield. Up top, Felipe Caicedo should partner Joaquin Correa up top, with top goalscorer Immobile set for the bench. Celtic, meanwhile, are without injured ex-Genoa midfielder Olivier Ntcham. However, eyes will be on French hitman Odsonne Edouard, who has been linked with the Aquile recently.  The Scots are currently top of E with a win and a draw, whereas Lazio are third after opening with a defeat to CFR Cluj. Celtic (probable): Forster; Frimpong, Jullien, Ajer, Bolingoli-Mbombo; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Rogic, Elyounoussi; Edouard Lazio (probable): Strakosha; Bastos, Vavro, Acerbi; Lazzari, Parolo, Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Jony; Correa, Caicedo Referee: Bebek (HRV) Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.
