ROME: Ciro Immobile scored twice in the final 10 minutes and Lazio beat Celtic 2-0 on Tuesday to move atop its Champions League group.
Lazio will advance if Atletico Madrid beats Feyenoord later. Celtic was assured of finishing last in Group E.
Gustav Isaksen set up both goals, first with a deflected shot that wound its way toward Immobile, who pounded it into the net from close range in the 82nd.
Three minutes later, Isaksen floated in a ball over the top and Immobile sprinted past one defender and spun around another before slotting in. Immobile had come on as a substitute in the 61st.
It was a welcome win for Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri, who said after a loss at last-place Salernitana in Serie A on Saturday that he needed to reflect over whether he was responsible for the club’s three-match winless streak in the Italian league.
