Team’s Up – Lenny looks to 3-5-2 to counter Lazio

CELTIC Manager Neil Lennon has named his side to play Lazio in the Europa League this evening, in the 5.55pm kick-off.

The system is likely to start as Celtic usually line-up with 4-2-3-1 but don’t be surprised if Elhamed drops into a back three alongside Ajer and Jullien and James Forrest and Jonny Hayes play as wing-backs.

Lazio will play 3-5-2 so Celtic might choose to match up with that to avoid giving them the extra man in the middle of the park.

The Celtic team is as follows…(4-2-3-1)


Elhamed Jullien Ajer Hayes

Brown McGregor

Forrest Christie Elyounoussi


Subs – Gordon, Taylor, Bitton, Sinclair, Bauer, Morgan and Ntcham

Celtic might match up as follows…(3-5-2)
