On October 22, 2021 at 9:45 am PST, Lazio will face Ligue 1 rivals Marseille at home in Group E of the UEFA Europa Cup.
Lazio finished last season with the 6th place in the league and also gained a UEFA Cup spot. The team’s performance in the group stage was mediocre, with only 1 win and 1 loss, ranking second in the group with 3 points and a point difference from Galatasaray, the top team in the Turkish Super League.
After 8 rounds of league play, they have 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, ranking 5th in Serie A with 14 points.
In terms of statistics, the Blue Eagles scored 18 goals and conceded 13 goals in 8 rounds. The attacking side of the team is quite good, but the defensive side which conceded too many goals dragged down the team’s performance.
Lazio’s tactical style is rather spirited, and with the combination of Immobile and Milinkovic in the team’s front line, its attacking ability is definitely not to be underestimated.
Lazio’s most recent match was at home against Inter Milan. The team’s stats on the field were slightly dominant, with 52% possession, 8 out of 19 shots on target. After falling behind in the score, the team turned the game around with a 3-1 victory thanks to goals from Immobile, Anderson and Milinkovic, and the victory also gave the team a morale boost.
Marseille is the oldest team in Ligue 1, and the team has always been ranked in the leading position in Ligue 1. The team has been in the European competition for many years and is very experienced.
After 9 rounds of league games this season, Marseille has 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, ranking 3rd in Ligue 1 with 17 points, 10 points away from the leader, Paris. Although there is little hope for the championship, there is still hope for the promotion spot of European competition.
In the UEFA Cup, Marseille has drawn all 2 matches and is currently 3rd in the group with 2 points. The good thing is that there is no big difference in points with the teams in front of them, and the team is still a strong contender for the promotion spot.
Marseille played at home against Lorient in the last league. The team dominated the match, with 64% possession and 6 out of 16 shots on goal. After trailing behind, the team finally overturned the opponent 4-1, and ended the the embarrassing situation of not winning in the previous 4 matches in all competitions.
In the past meetings between the two teams, Lazio has won 2, drawn 1 and lost 1 out of 4 matches against Marseille, which gives them a slight advantage.
Recently, Lazio’s overall performance this season is moderate. Although the strength of the attacking side is not bad, but there are a lot of gaps in the defensive side. Marseille, on the other hand, won their last match by a large margin, but still could not completely cover up their previous slump.
Combined with the current strength and status of the two sides, Lazio still has a chance to take all three points in this battle.
