Lazio Preview – Lazio look for revenge

There was a big upset for Lazio on Matchday One when they went to Turkey and lost 1-0 against Galatasaray.

It has been an overall W2 D2 L1 record from the Serie A since then in the group.

On home turf, they have claimed a 2-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow and have played out a 0-0 draw with Marseille.

Those clean sheets certainly put them in with a shout.

Lazio have three clean sheets in their last four group stage matches.

In the match outright, Lazio are a quote of 4/6 to get the job done on home soil* (odds recorded 20:58 GMT on December 7th 2021 at William Hill).

The scenario in front of Lazio is simple. Win and they top the group, anything else and they finish second.

Their home record in the Europa League stands at W17 D5 L4, but they have lost three of their last seven at the Stadio Olimpico in the competition.

Our betting prediction:
Lazio To Win To Nil

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 20:58 GMT on December 7th 2021 at William Hill)


The head to head between the two clubs from the five previous meetings is even at two wins each and a draw.

Lazio have won their two previous home fixtures against Galatasaray.

The most recent meeting between the two in Italy saw Lazio win 3-1 in the 2016 Europa League.

Both teams have scored in just three of the five previous meetings.

Lazio to win to nil is at a quote of 9/4* (odds recorded 20:58 GMT on December 7th 2021 at William Hill).

A look at the overall form of Lazio shows a lack of consistency.

They are W3 D3 L2 in their last eight in all competitions.

The Serie A side do pose a threat as they have scored at least three goals in four of their last six matches.


Galatasaray Preview – Can Turkish side hold out?

Galatasaray have been one of the surprise packages of the season in the UEFA Europa League.

They are holding a big advantage going into the final round of matches.

Galatasaray hold a three-point advantage at the top of the group and therefore only need to avoid defeat on Thursday.

They are however, the big 4/1 underdogs in the match outright* (odds recorded 20:58 GMT on December 7th 2021 at William Hill).

The Turkish side have remained undefeated in this campaign, with an excellent W3 D2 record.

They have taken four points on the road, not conceding in either game.

Only in four of the ten matches in Group E have seen both teams score.

Seven of the ten Group E matches have finished under 2.5 goals, so this has been a tight scrap all the way.

Will Galatasaray be able to show up in Italy and just hold out to that draw?

Both teams NOT to score is at a quote of 29/20 for Europa League football betting on Thursday* (odds recorded 20:58 GMT on December 7th 2021 at William Hill).

Galatasaray have a winless D5 L7 record in Italy, which is perhaps the big thing that works against them.

They have won 8 of 25 previous matches against Italian opponents.

This is just the second time that Galatasaray have been to the group stage of this competition, winning their group based on their previous experience.

Their overall away record in the Europa League is W7 D7 L4.

They don’t look as if they are going to be a pushover.


Lazio vs Galatasaray Betting Advice

Galatasaray rjust need to show up and dig in for a draw. But the Lazio 4/6 home win just shades preference* (odds recorded 20:58 GMT on December 7th 2021 at William Hill).
