Apollon Limassol vs Lazio Rome begins 29.11.2018 at 21:00 CET
That is why this team is given a very small chance in this next match with the Romans, despite the fact that they will now have a huge support from the stands. But we have already said that they have in the first four rounds of Europa League only made a home draw with Marseille, while they experienced defeats in the remaining three games, in Rome from Lazio and in two duels with Eintracht from Frankfurt.
On the other hand, this elimination from Europa League has apparently motivated the team of Apollon to have a much bigger motive in the championship, so they in the last two rounds made a safe victory of 3-0, which after a long time brought them in a leading position on table. However, they are now aware that they will have an extremely difficult task against the favoured Lazio, especially since the injured defenders Yuste and Stylianou and striker Carayol are still questionable.
Probable lineups Apollon Limassol: Vale – Joao Pedro, C.Kyriakou, Roberge, Vasiliou – Marković, Sachetti – Sardinero, Maglica, Zelaya – Pereyra
As for the guests from Rome, we have already said in the introduction that they will in the remaining two rounds only fight for the first place of Europa League with Eintracht, given that they have after two victories over Marseille definitely secured placement in the knockout stage. Otherwise, the Romans have achieved their third win in the group in the first round, when they defeated Apollon at home with 2-1, and then lost to Eintracht with 4-1, which is why they have three points less than them.
However, in the team of Lazio believe that they can in the last two rounds record as many wins, with the proviso that they need to defeat the team of Eintracht with at least three goals difference, while they will against Apollo certainly try to routinely score points, even though coach Inzaghi has already announced that he will send a combined team to the field. Namely, they had a very difficult championship duel with Milan, which ended with a score of 1-1, so Lazio still occupies the fourth place on the Serie A table. We should also add that only the injured midfielder Leiva does not compete for this match.
Probable lineups Lazio Rome: Proto – Caceres, Bastos, Felipe – Patric, Murgia, Cataldi, Berisha, J.Lukaku – Correa, Caicedo
Apollon Limassol vs Lazio Rome PICK
Even though they have already secured placement in the knockout stage of Europa League, the Romans certainly want to finish at the first place in the group, so we expect that they will with this combined setting aim for a victory over Apollon from the first minute.
