Lazio 1 - 2 Celtic - A Stunning End To Celtic's Visit To Lazio
A stunning end to Celtic's visit to Lazio saw Olivier Ntcham give Neil Lennon's men a famous win and earn qualification to the Europa League knockout stage.

A stunning end to Celtic's visit to Lazio saw Olivier Ntcham give Neil Lennon's men a famous win and earn qualification to the Europa League knockout stage.

The visitors, backed by at least 8,000 raucous fans, were on the back foot from the off with Ciro Immobile opening the scoring after seven minutes.

They dug in and started to give as good as they get with Forrest netting a fine equaliser. The second half was a topsy-turvy affair with both teams having chances to win it.

And it was Celtic who did it in the 95th minute of the match, pouncing on slack play from the home side with Ntcham showing his class to chip in the winner, handing the club their first ever win in Italy.

The Hoops' response to the setback was impressive and they levelled in the 67th minute as midfielder Ryan Christie swept in a pass from striker Odsonne Edouard.

And, with a minute remaining, French defender Jullien rose to power home a Christie corner and take the hosts on to seven points at the top of Group E ahead of the return game in Rome in two weeks' time.

Celtic Earn A Point On The Road In Rennes

Ryan Christie's second-half penalty earned Celtic a 1-1 draw with Rennes in their opening Europa League group game in France after they held on with 10 men in a frantic finale.

The Scottish champions fell behind to a spot-kick from M'Baye Niang in the 37th minute after some rash defending from Kristoffer Ajer.

Celtic had a strong claim of their own rejected before James Forrest was fouled in the box and Christie converted in the 59th minute.

Neil Lennon's side showed plenty of attacking intent and were well worth their point in Brittany but they had to survive a man down after late substitute Vakoun Bayo received two yellow cards in quick succession.
