Lazio – Sevilla, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LAZIO - SEVILLA
Lazio had very heavy rivals in both of their last campaigns in Europa League as this season they had to cope with Eintracht and Marseille, who have been last season’s finalist. However, the Roman eagles had no problems and managed to qualify once again for round of 32, and now they have to take advantage of the weak form of Sevilla. Lazio, however, is fighting hard for the top 4 again, so it is questionable how much they will take seriously these matches in the Europa League.
Sevilla are the kings of this tournament for the last 7-8 years and we all know that Emery has managed to take the cup three times with this team, but now the team is in bad shape. From the challenger of Barcelona for the title they are now fighting for top 4 with teams like Getafe and Bettis in La Liga. In Copa del Rey they were defeated by Barcelona and have lost 5 in the last 8 games overall. Sevilla, however, is a team that makes wonders at European stage and you can always expect good things for them here.
Sevilla and Lazio have no matches between themselves. What we need to know is that Lazio is a very offensive team and always attacks a lot, no matter what team they are facing at home. Their last matches as a host prove that. We expect them to throw for victory, and we do not think they will rely so much on tactical discipline. Sevilla are in a series of 4 consecutive losses as a guest, so Lazio has to take advantage. For the Spaniards, however, this tournament looks much more valuable and it is logical to score at least once. Prediction – BTTS at 1.83.
- 9 of the last 10 home games of Lazio finished in BTTS format
- Sevilla have scored at least 1 goal in 8 of their last 9 away games in Europa League
