Lazio vs Marseille: prediction for the Europa League match
Lazio were never defeated by Marseille at home and Italian side is in a great form now. Will hosts record a victory in the third round of the Europa League on October 21? The answer is in our prediction.
Lazio, currently managed by Maurizio Sarri, have three points after two matches of the Europa League and are at the 2nd spot in Group E. In the previous match Laziale recorded a victory over Lokomotiv Moscow (2:0), before that they were narrowly beaten by Galatasaray (0:1), despite a significant advantage on shots.
Roman team is looking good in Serie A - after eight matches team has 14 points and is at the 5th place in the standings, 10 points adrift from first-placed Napoli. In the previous match club recorded a victory over Inter (3:1).
Marseille, currently managed by Jorge Sampaoli, have one point less than Lazio, so they are one spot below their opponent. Team avoided defeats in both matches, but also failed to record a single victory. In the first round French club split the points with Lokomotiv (1:1) at Moscow, despite a significant advantage during the game, and then had a goalless draw against Galatasaray (0:0) at home.
Marseille are looking great in Ligue 1 right now, team is at the 3rd spot after nine games with 17 points and a game in hand. In the previous match they recorded a home victory over Lorient (4:1).
Lazio recorded two out of five most recent victories with that score
In five most recent home games club scored four goals after the half-time
In four out of five most recent home matches of Lazio this bet played
Both clubs recorded victories in their domestic leagues on weekend, so they are approaching the match at Rome in good mood. Lazio recorded a confident victory over Inter. Romans are looking great in every line and they are unbeaten at home for 16 consecutive matches.
Marseille failed to record a single victory over Lazio on an away game and we think that visitors won't pick up any points once again. Hosts are looking better and we think that Roman team will get the victory.
Our prediction - Lazio to win
Both teams are playing offensively, which we saw last weekend. Head-to-head matches between these teams were high-scoring and we are expecting the same scenario this time. Hosts will probably lead the game and they should be able to break through their opponent's defense, while visitors will try to answer on counter-attacks.
Our second bet is on total over 2.5 goals
