      Lazio’s Europa League campaign draws to a close this week, with the Serie A side already through to the last 32. They’ve wrapped up second place, but they can’t catch up to leaders Eintracht Frankfurt. The hosts don’t need to pick up three points, but they do need a win. Recent form has seen them slip out of the top four in Serie A, which has put pressure onto Simone Inzaghi. Will they be able to turn things around when they host Frankfurt this week?

      Lazio conceded a 99th-minute goal in their weekend draw with Sampdoria. That point left them out of the Champions League spots in Serie A, in a season where they could have kicked on in the top four chase. Their ambitions of returning to Europe’s biggest stage have been clear for the last couple of seasons, but they’ve narrowly lost out on each occasion. This term, two of their main rivals are faltering, yet Lazio’s awful form of late has left them unable to move clear in the top four race. Will this week bring a result which can turn around their fortunes?

      The visitors have had a couple of league defeats, but their season overall has been good. They recovered from a shaky start to move within touching distance of the top four in the Bundesliga. After winning the German cup last term, they have gone on to impress in Europe, recording a thumping 4-1 win over Lazio the last time these two sides met. Will they be able to round off the group with a win in Rome, and pile misery onto the Aquile?

      The hosts really need a victory after their recent displays. Another setback at the weekend has left questions hanging over the future of Simone Inzaghi. Losing a dead rubber clash with Apollon in the Europa League was a blow – as they Aquile lost 2-0 at the Cypriot minnows. That’s part of a five-game run without a win, which has seen them fail to impress with their performances. Inzaghi may point to a lack of summer investment, but the issues behind the scenes aren’t too important. As we approach the half-way point, Lazio’s form could scupper their ambitions once again.

      The visitors head here with five wins from five in Europe so far. They’ve also managed to hit form in the league, which has left Frankfurt in a strong position. The morale in the camp is surely the complete opposite to Lazio, while the Italians tend to leave out major stars for this competition anyway. We expect the hosts to focus on the league to turn around their rotten run, and we’re backing them to slip up once again. We see Frankfurt continuing their unbeaten run in Europe, so we’re backing them on the Double Chance market.
