Celtic face Lazio on Matchday Two of the UEFA Champions League on the 4th of October before the a doubleheader against the La Liga side. Celtic were beaten home and away by Ancelotti’s team in last season’s UCL. Diego Simeone’s side will likely prove to be a very difficult opponent for Celtic and are, really, the best team in the group.
