Serie A’s top scorer Ciro Immobile had given Lazio the lead as early as in the seventh minute. Celtic kept their discipline intact and got the equaliser through James Forrest who scored his 11th goal of the season just before the break.
Neil Lennon’s side defended strongly and it looked like they would earn a point, but a 95th-minute strike from the 23-year-old turned the tide in Celtic’s favour.
Celtic managed 43% of possession and attempted 12 shots on goal during the game, according to BBC Sport.
