Not once but twice have Celtic come from behind against his team to beat them and as he looks for some reasoning as to why – the Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi has had a go at Thursday night’s referee.
The Italian was trying to piece together what when wrong for the second time in two weeks as Celtic humbled them in their own backyard.
The Lazio manager wasn’t in the mood for niceties and put very little blame on his players. Inzaghi blamed the woodwork, Fraser Forster before declaring the referee was against them.
In a rare thing in European football, we actually saw a strong referee who would not bow to home pressure when Lazio were throwing themselves down in the box – especially in the second half.
‘There is still hope. Celtic have beaten us home and away so maybe they will be able to beat Cluj in Romania and we have to win against Rennes and Cluj.” Inzaghi told MailSport.
‘We hit the post, their goalkeeper saved a lot and we also had the referee against us because at 1-1 there was a clear penalty for us that wasn’t given to us, so it could have changed the game.’
Celtic have already qualified and as the Lazio manager said, they now must look for a favour from Celtic if they manage to beat Cluj on matchday five. The bhoys have a great chance of finishing top of the group as it currently stands.
