Line-ups: Lazio v Celtic

Felipe Caicedo passes a late fitness test to partner Ciro Immobile in Lazio’s must-win Europa League match with Celtic, who don’t risk Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo.

It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico at 17.55 GMT.

You can follow all the build-up and action as it happens from this game and Borussia Monchengladbach-Roma on the LIVEBLOG.

The Biancocelesti had dominated for long periods in Glasgow, only to yet again fall apart late on in a 2-1 defeat, a replay of their loss by the same result in Cluj.

Simone Inzaghi’s men are doing well in Serie A lately, flying into joint fourth place with Atalanta and Cagliari, but it has come at the expense of their Europa League campaign.

Injuries are piling up yet again, with Joaquin Correa, Stefan Radu and Adam Marusic out of action, while Lucas Leiva plays on through pain.

Caicedo wasn’t in good shape either, but has passed a fitness test on his shoulder to partner on-form centre-forward Immobile, fresh from scoring his 100th goal in a Lazio jersey.

It means Manuel Lazzari is again taking on the Celtic wingers, with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in midfield.

Compared to the first game, Celtic are not ready to risk Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo following a hamstring issue, so Jonny Hayes starts.

Mohamed Elyounoussi is one to watch on the left flank, having contributed seven goals and five assists in 10 matches.

Ryan Christie steps in for Tom Rogic in support of Odsonne Edouard.
