Lazio – Marseille Preview

  • Lazio have bounced back from their UEFA Europa League (UEL) Group E matchday one defeat to Galatasaray with a 2-0-win vs Lokomotiv, and they should be in a confident mood after a 3-1 win against reigning Serie A champions Inter at the weekend. That made it three wins in four competitive outings for the hosts (L1), who can also take confidence from having won four of their previous six H2Hs with Marseille in European competition (D1, L1).
  • Favourites for this clash, the hosts are on a run of four UEL wins against French sides at Stadio Olimpico, and will believe they can top Group H this season. With Maurizio Sarri’s men on a run of 19 UEL matches without a draw (W8, L11), with the victorious side scoring precisely two goals in 12 of those, this clash is likely to see a winner either way.
  • Visitors Marseille make the trip to the Italian capital hoping to register their first UEL victory since April 2018. Jorge Sampaoli’s side travel here after drawing their opening two UEL matchups and need to start picking up more points if they’re to progress. If anything, those draws emphasise the difficulties they’ve had on the European stage for several years, claiming just one victory from their previous 16 UCL/UEL matches (D3, L12).
  • Currently third in Ligue 1, France’s only previous European champions were on a winless streak of four competitive matches before they hammered Lorient 4-1 at the weekend. Despite that victory, this showdown could prove substantially harder considering the away side’s dreadful run of five consecutive European losses against Italian opposition – including two H2H defeats during the 2018/19 UEL.
  • Players to watch: Ciro Immobile has assisted two goals in each of Lazio’s previous two H2Hs with Marseille, and will be itching to get himself on the scoresheet here. One man who did just that recently was Mattéo Guendouzi, who scored for Marseille in their weekend win over Lorient.
  • Hot streak: Marseille haven’t kept a UEL away clean sheet for 12 games.
