UEFA Europa League
(23 Nov 2017)
Lazio – Vitesse
Lazio welcomes Vitesse in a match of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage).
Lazio: The home team is currently taking the 1st position in the group with 12 points won, after 4 wins. Also, they are already through to the round of 32 as group winners and can become only the 9th team ever to qualify from the group stage with maximum points. However, they come into the match after a disappointing (2-1) loss in the Rome derby to rivals AS Roma that snapped their 9-match winning streak.
Vitesse: The away team is in the 4th position with 1 point won after a draw and 3 losses. Vitesse’s form in European matches is very poor as the Dutch club has failed to win in 10 matches. They are also without a win in 8 away European games, with their last win registered 15 years ago. However, they will be seeking to bounce back from a (2-0) defeat against SV Zulte Waregem in the previous round of the UEFA Europa League.
Conclusion: Lazio claimed a justified victory in the competitions’ first meeting of the sides, with a 3 – 2 win and will try the double here. Also, they will be seeking to follow up on their 1 – 0 victory against Nice last time out. Therefore, Lazio will control the ball and eventually go on to claim full points.
