Olivier Ntcham’s stoppage-time strike earned Celtic a stunning win over Lazio in Rome and a place in the knockout stages of the Europa League with two games to spare.
Serie A’s top scorer Ciro Immobile had given Lazio the lead with an unopposed back-post volley, but James Forrest lashed in his 11th goal of the season just before the break to level.
Neil Lennon’s side had to defend stoutly after the break and looked like they would hold on for a point until substitute Ntcham ran on to an Odsonne Edouard pass to secure a first win for Celtic in Italy.
