Lazio 1-2 Celtic: Neil Lennon’s side reach Europa League last 32


James Forrest has scored 11 goals for Celtic this season

Olivier Ntcham’s stoppage-time strike earned Celtic a stunning win over Lazio and a place in the Europa League last 32 with two games to spare.

Serie A’s top scorer Ciro Immobile had given Lazio the lead with an unopposed back-post volley, but James Forrest lashed in his 11th goal of the season just before the break to level.

Neil Lennon’s side had to defending stoutly after the break and looked like they would hold on until Ntcham ran on to an Odsonne Edouard pass to secure Celtic’s first win in Italy.

It is the second time in two weeks that Celtic have stunning Lazio with a late winner, Christopher Jullien’s header earning victory in Glasgow two weeks ago.

It also means that the Scottish champions’ games with Rennes at Celtic Park and against Cluj in Romanian will now only decide whether they win the group or not.
