FCSB take on the visitors Lazio at “Arena Nationala” in the first-leg fight of the 1/16 final stage of the UEFA Europa League. The match will be played in Bucharest on Thursday, February 15th.
FCSB have already got back from winter vacation and played two games within the Romanian Liga 1, having broken Gaz Metan Medias 2:1 and deserved 1:1 draw against CFR Cluj in them. At the moment “Stelistii” occupy the second place in the Romanian elite division standings with 51 points taken and 48-16 goal difference. It should be noted that FCSB have lost only two encounters in front of their fans in this season and both of them happened within the Eurocups: 1:5 vs. Sporting and 1:2 against Lugano.

Lazio have not tasted a victory in four recent battles, having earned single draw and three defeats with three goals for and eight goals against in them. Because of that losing streak “Le Aquile” dropped from the third to the fifth position in the Serie A table where they are sitting now with 46 points gained. The Romans collected three wins, three draws and four defeats in 10 recent fights conducted on the road.
The Thursday clash will become the first head-to-head between FCSB and Lazio. The Romanians didn’t impress in their first games played in 2018 on the eve of the Eurocups which is not good. However, Lazio have simply disappointed in their latest tackles, thus, they will tend to succeed in Romania as “Le Aquile” cannot afford to extend their unlucky streak and the hosts are not likely to become an obstacle on Lazio’s pace to the away triumph within the Eurocups.
Prediction for the match: Lazio to win.
