On Thursday, at 17:55, Lazio will receive a visit to Olympique Marseille in a match for the 4th round of the UEFA Europa League. The match will take place on “Stadio Olimpico” in Rome.
OM, on a downhill slope and in the championship.
Last season finalist of UEFA Europa League is no longer available lately. The start of the precarious form of Rudi Garcia’s band in Europe came from the first match, OM being able to escape through the fingers in the last minute at least three points, one with Frankfurt and two against Apollon. The defeat of Lazio on the Velodrome, 1-3, only confirms both the poor French evolutions and their lack of interest in the Europa League. However, the problems persist in the championship. OM has lost 4 defeats in the last 6 stages, falling to 6th in Ligue 1, with a mediocre ranking line. On the other hand, Lazio maintains the expected parameters, just like in the championship. Surpassing their lower level bands without difficulty, the “biancocelestii” succumbs when they cheer with stronger names. In Europe, chapters are on schedule, especially after the success of the Velodrome. Normally, Eintracht Frankfurt and Lazio should not be in trouble arming arm in “16”.
Lazio (3-5-2): Strakosha- Wallace, Acerbi, Radu-Caceres, Parolo, Cataldi, Milinkovic-Savic, Lulic-Caicedo, Immobile
Marseille (4-2-3-1): Mandanda-Sakai, Kamara, Caleta-Car, Amavi-Gustavo, Strootman-Thauvin, Payet, Ocampos- Mitroglou
Given the circumstances of this game, we expect a spectacular hostile run. Even though we have just stated all the reasons why Marseille could not get more than one draw on the “Olimpico”, the offensive potential of the French is an indisputable one, so a scorecard on both sides would perfectly illustrate the range of our prognosis.
PREDICTION: Lazio to win @ 1.68
