Lazio head coach Simone Inzaghi says the Europa League group, including Italian side, Cluj, Celtic and Rennes, is more of Champions League level rather than Europa League level.
“This is a tough group, more at the level of the Champions League than Europa League,” Inzaghi said in his Press conference.
“Both Celtic and Cluj were in the Champions League preliminary rounds, while Rennes won the French Super Cup and are doing very well. It wasn’t a great draw for us, that’s for sure.
“Cluj are a physical, intense side with a fine Coach in Dan Petrescu. There will be many key duels around the pitch. If I had to single out a player for special treatment, it’d be Billel Omrani.” he added.
Lazio will face Cluj, while Celtic will play against Rennes.
