Lazio to Win

Reason for tip

Lazio have won five of their eight home gams this season, losing only to Serie A leaders Napoli while, although Midtyjlland won 5-1 in Herning when these last met, they have lost away to Sturm Graz and were fortunate to get a draw at Feyenoord in this group. Lazio have improved a lot since their mauling in Denmark, conceding just twice in their last seven matches in all competitions.

Lazio 2-1

Reason for tip

Although Lazio have been watertight at the back recently, FCM have scored in 11 of their 12 away games this term. They have also conceded two goals or more in seven of their last 11 away games in this competition while Lazio have hit multiple goals in four of their last six home Europa League matches.

  • Lazio have conceded just twice in their last seven matches in all competitions.

Lean on Lazio for home win 

Lazio will look to leverage home advantage into the win that could take them to the brink of qualification from the most evenly balanced Europa League group on Thursday. Maurizio Sarri’s side enter Matchday five level on points with all three other members of Group F, including opponents Midtjylland.

So it stands to reason that victory would be a huge step forward to the knockout rounds and a massive blow to whichever team loses this game. Sarri selects strong line-ups in this competition anyway, but with Salernitana to come to the Olimpico at the weekend, there’s no season for him to go with a weakened side.

Talismanic striker Ciro Immobile is out with an injury and Luis Alberto, who has started all four previous group games, is a major doubt, but Lazio coped well without them in a 2-0 win at Atalanta last Sunday as Felipe Anderson revelled in a false nine role. I Biancocelesti have won five and drawn two of their eight home games this term and will be out to avenge their 5-1 loss in Herning back on Matchday Two.

Sarri’s side have tightened up since Herning horror show

That defeat was due to some catastrophic defending on the night, but Lazio have sharpened up at the back of late, shipping only two goals in their seven games since that day in Denmark.

So, despite Midtjylland extending their current unbeaten run to ten games in a 1-1 draw with Danish champions Copenhagen last weekend, Lazio should be the bet to win this clash. Copenhagen missed a penalty and a stoppage-time sitter that would have earned them a deserved win.

A 2-1 Lazio win is preferred in correct score betting as, although the Italian club have been watertight at the back recently, FCM have scored in 11 of their 12 away games this term. They have also conceded two goals or more in seven of their last 11 away games in this competition while Lazio have hit multiple goals in four of their last six home Europa League contests.
