Europa League Salzburg – Lazio 12 April 2018

Europa League Salzburg – Lazio

Salzburg is the first in Austria and will surely be the champion of this season. The team has a very good track record in the first Austrian league, with 19 wins, 8 draws and just 2 defeats. In the last official match, Salzburg lost 1-0 to LASK Linz after a match clearly dominated by Marco Rose’s team. In the Europa League, things have gone so far so far, because after having passed the groups they managed to eliminate Real Sociedad and Dortmund, and in the 4 games they have not lost even one. In the quarter-final match away from Lazio, Rose’s team acknowledged themselves defeated by 2-4 after the 73 minute score of 2-2 and basically managed to have real chances of qualifying. The main factor that still offers Austrian qualifiers is that they do not lose much on their own ground, so the advantage of their own terrain can make a difference between the two teams.

Lazio is in 3rd place in Serie A, this being the goal set for the end of the season. He is equal to points with AS Roma and a point over Inter, so the Uefa Champions League position is jeopardized by every negative result obtained by Inzaghi’s team. The visiting team in this game is unbeaten by 7 official games, and therefore it is in a very good shape. On the way to the quarter-finals, Lazio eliminated FCSB and Dynamo Kiev. In the match against the Romans, Lazio had little emotion in the qualifying, but on “Olimpico” things were turned against them in the first half. In the last official match, Lazio won 1-2 on the Udinese field.

Salzburg – Lazio Prediction

In the tour, things were largely dominated by the Italian team, but given that this match will be played on the field of Austrians who have not lost an official match for a long time at this stadium, I expect a very good replica of their side. I think they will try to attack from the first half, otherwise the chances for them to go further will diminish as they pass, so we chose a goal on the goals.

Prediction Today: Goal in both halves
