Discuss Spartak 2012 or Lazio 2019 in the Celtic Chat area at TalkCeltic.net.
Lazio by a long way
Was always desperate to sign him. That big lump for Hearts is as similar as I've seen, just a * version.
Emenike is 32 and still playing but hasn't scored a goal since 2016
For prestige it was spartak hands down (in the context that it meant getting through a CL group stage after beating barca at home and running them very close in the nou camp)
Having said that I honestly can't remember a European group stage campaign where the level of our performances was as consistently good as this year. We are well worth the 10 points we have. I lost a bit of faith over the past few years that we could bridge the financial gap between these top sides and go toe to toe but lenny just seems to bring the best out of the players on this stage. The confidence the players have is noticeably far higher than in the Rodgers era in Europe.
I'd have more confidence in this team playing juve in a CL last 16 game than I had 7 years ago
Lazio for me but Lennon getting that monkey off our back in the Champions League was special. But as said some of that Lazio team are top talents.
Lazio, all day long.
Spartak was a great result but Lazio was far superior imo.
Lazio have some truly world class players in their squad. Immobile and Milinkovic Savic on their day would walk into any side in world football.
Sign him up.
Was at the Spartak home game and though it was a while ago I don’t remember being as impressed by their quality, as I was watching Lazio.
Lazio are clearly a great team, thought we were genuinely better than Spartak rather than us absolutely rising to the occasion.
Spartak was in the CL however and was worth more. Am trying to sit on the fence cos Lazio is fresh
I honestly can’t take you * serious with that name.
My father bore it and his father before him, don’t tick me off
Lazio, for sure.
Beating a top team from a top league, away from home, and in the manner we did...it's special.
As weird as it sounds after taking 6 points off them. I seriously underestimated Lazio I never realised just how good a team they are on paper at least Malinkovic-Savic and Immobile are the obvious standouts but Parolo, Acerbi, Bastos Caicedo and Luis Alberto are all great players as well. Taking maximum points from them is a serious achievement
They have a load of quality players, aye.
But Caicedo is a big diddy. No idea how he plays for a team as good as Lazio. Does nothing but dive all game.
Lazio are a much better squad.
Was prouder to beat Spartan away though as it was so huge to get that first away champions league game.
Lazio now are a far better team than Spartak then
Disagree with that mate, he’s not a great goalscorer but he’s an absolute pest and his link up play is great. Annoyingly his * cheating works as well.
I thought he was decent especially at parkhead didn't stop running all night
Got to remember also that we have a far superior team now to what we did back in 2012.
