Lazio – Sevilla
Lazio welcomes Sevilla in one of the most interesting clashes in the Europa League 1/16-finals. Allow us to take a look at this fixture at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Lazio finished second in Group H, being beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt for the first place. In this group Lazio ended with 9 points and a record of 3 wins and 3 losses. The Eagles were not that much consistent in this group, but they did enough in order to progress to the next phase of the competition. But surely these 3 defeats are a sign that Lazio are a little bit shaky in Europa this season.
In the Italian Serie A Lazio continue the fight for a Top 4 finish. Right now the Eagles are 7th in the league with 38 points, but don’t let this mislead you – Lazio are just one point behind the 4th Milan. How you can see, the fight for the 4th place in Italy is going to be very intense. Lazio won their last two games in the league, which is a sign for some improvement.
Sevilla won Group J of Europa League, despite of finishing with the same amount of points as the Russian side Krasnodar. Both teams won 12 points, but Sevilla had better stats, so they won the group. Their record at the end was 4 wins and 2 losses.
In La Liga Sevilla are moving well. Los Rojiblancos are currently 4th in the league with 37 points, having 2 points advantage in front of the 5th Getafe. But lately Machin’s team is not in its best shape. Sevilla won just one of their last five games in the league. In their last two matches they won just one point.
Lazio and Sevilla will offer us some great spectacle in Europa League, we are sure about that. We wish you good time with that clash.
