Lazio vs Galatasaray: prediction for the Europa League match
Lazio were considered favourites of their group before the start of the Europa League - so far Romans are living up to the expectations. Maurizio Sarri's men are approaching the final round at the 2nd spot in the group with eight points in the asset. The Eagles won't drop out of the playoffs zone already, they are four points ahead of Marseille, but they still can win the group, if they will record a victory over Galatasaray by two goals.
Galatasaray are looking great in the group stage of the Europa League, but not in all matches they were better than the opponent. For example, in the first match Fatih Terim's men recorded a 1:0 victory over Lazio due to opponent's own goal. The Lions are currently at the top of the group with 11 points, three points ahead of the second-placed Lazio.
Galatasaray suffered two of three most recent away defeats with that score
This bet was successful in two out of three most recent home matches
In two most recent Europa League matches Lazio didn't concede a single goal
Lazio have already clinched a play-off spot, but Romans will surely try to get the 1st spot, which will let them to go past the preliminary round. Galatasaray are not looking good on away matches, they failed to find a victory in three most recent away games, plus hosts will do everything to get revenge for their defeat at Istanbul.
Our prediction - Lazio to win
Lazio will try to get the victory today and hosts will probably be active on the offense, but Galatasaray will try to contain the opponent. We are not expecting many goals to be scored here, in the first match the outcome was decided by just one goal, so we are expecting the same scenario here.
Our second bet is on total under 3.5 goals
