Immobile's Double Strike

The final 10 minutes of the game were nothing short of a spectacle as Ciro Immobile emerged as the hero of the evening. Gustav Isaksen set up both goals, beginning with a deflected shot in the 82nd minute that found its way to Immobile. Without missing a beat, Immobile seized the opportunity, striking the ball into the net from close range. A mere three minutes later, Isaksen floated a ball over the top, and Immobile evaded a defender before spinning past another and smoothly slotting in the second goal.

The victory propelled Lazio to the top of its Champions League group. Currently, Lazio leads with 10 points, followed by Atletico Madrid with 8, Feyenoord with 6, and Celtic lagging behind with just one point. The win presents a potential advancement for Lazio if Atletico Madrid triumphs over Feyenoord in their upcoming match.

Relief for Lazio's Coach Amidst Struggles

The victory brought much-needed relief for Lazio's coach, Maurizio Sarri. His contemplation over his responsibility for the club’s three-match winless streak in the Italian league was put to rest. On the other hand, Celtic's hope for a late comeback was dashed when a penalty kick was waved off following a video review in stoppage time. Looking ahead, the final group matches on Dec. 13 will see Lazio visiting Atletico and Celtic hosting Feyenoord.
