Lazio Look for Europa League Success!

  • Written on:

Rome giants Lazio take on Portuguese side Sporting in their final Group D Europa League match this evening!

Lazio know that victory at Stadio Olimpico will not guarantee them a place in the knock-out stages and they will need luck, as well as results to go their way if they are to seal qualification. The Italians are currently third in their group, six points behind Sporting and crucially level on points but below Vaslui, by virtue of a worse head head-to-head record with the Romanian side.

Lazio will go into the game full of confidence having picked up a fantastic 3-2 victory on Saturday which saw them grab fourth spot in Serie A. They will also be buoyed by the fact they have yet to taste defeat at home in the Europa League this season and that they boast a squad capable of scoring important goals.

The visitors have been playing well lately, but with qualification already assured, Lazio will be hoping they can grab all three points and with a bit of luck, qualification too!

Will Lady Luck shine on Lazio this evening? We’re backing them to make it to the last 32 – are you?
