Lazio vs FC Salzburg Preview

Lazio vs FC Salzburg

Competition – UEFA Europa League

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 5th April 2018

Kick-off time – 20:05 GMT

SS Lazio are still struggling to get inside the Italian top four which has become even more competitive this season, so they would be putting almost all of their energy into winning the Europa League as another alternative for them getting into Europe’s elite competition next season.

They may have some of the best attacking players in Europe at the moment, however, they have failed to keep a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 games.

They also have just one clean sheet from their last 6 home games and they allowed Benevento to score two goals against them at the weekend.

Salzburg come into this game in great away form as they have not lost any of their last 8 Europa League games on the road and they have found the back of the net in seven of those games.

They scored twice away from home against Dortmund and Real Sociedad in the last two rounds and they would be looking to replicate the same form in this game.

Ciro Immobile could be the difference here as he has netted 6 times in his last 3 starts in the competition and netted twice at the weekend.
