Lazio welcome the visitors Sevilla in the Europa League Play-offs – 1/16 Finals. The match will be held on Thursday, February, 14th, at the Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
After two consecutive losses to the Italian toppers Juventus and Napoli, Lazio started to win. The ‘Eagles’ faced Empoli and Frosinone running in the relegation zone though, but in the outing against the challenging Internazionale, they managed to draw and then win in the penalty kicks (in the cup fixture). Compared to the start of the campaign, Lazio are less effective. Thus, in the fifth round, Simone Inzaghi’s registered a 4:1 win over Genoa, while now they are fine with a minimum 1:0 victory over Empoli.

Sevilla, who started the campaign pretty well, have greatly receded lately. In the national competition, they could attain a solitude win (over Levante) in the last five rounds, featuring one draw against Eibar in the last encounter and three losses. If they don’t psych up, they may leave the Champions League spots, as their closest pursuers Getafe are only two points behind. There is no use in considering the guests’ group stage form, as they’ve significantly ceded, as noted above.
It’s rather difficult to define favorites in the coming clash; still, we give preference to the Italians (but we won’t take risks and bet on this). We’d better predict an underscoring outcome under the good odds. Both sides have lowered the quality of their performance markedly; therefore, Lazio will try to play safer in defense, while Sevilla’s attack has also receded (five goals to the most leaking Levante don’t count). Their ten latest encounters produced under 2.5 goals eight times (without cup fixtures); Lazio registered six underscoring matches of ten. So, we will hardly see an abundance of goals tomorrow.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
