Lazio Rome vs Olympique Marseille / Europa League – This match in the fourth round of Europa League brings us the Roman Lazio and French Marseille, to whom this is actually the last chance to stay in the game for placement in the knockout stage. Namely, after they were defeated by Lazio with 3-1 on their Velodrome two weeks ago, the team from Marseille was left with only one point won, while the Romans have so far collected more than five, and the leading Eintracht from Frankfurt is practically untouchable with the maximum of nine points.
Lazio Rome vs Olympique Marseille begins 08.11.2018 at 18:55 CET
On the other hand, Lazio should with a new victory over Marseille, probably secure placement in the knockout stage, as it is really difficult to expect that the last-ranked Apollon can surprise the brilliant team of Eintracht in the second match of this group. That is why we believe that the Romans will take this duel with Marseille very seriously and that they will start aggressively from the first minute and try to record a new triumph over their rival from the far south of France.
Otherwise, Lazio has after the first duel, played two more matches in Serie A, and they recorded completely different results, given that they lost with 3-0 at home from Inter and then they on the same field mastered the team of SPAL with 4-1. In this way, Lazio has remained at the fifth place on the table, with the same number of points as the fourth Milan, while they are currently four points behind Inter and Napoli. We should also add that Badelj and Leiva are still out of action due to injury.
Probable lineups Lazio Rome: Strakosha – Wallace, Acerbi, Radu – Marusic, Milinkovic-Savic, Parolo, Cataldi, Lukaku – Correa, Immobile
Unlike Lazio, which has made four victories and only one defeat in the last five duels, the team from Marseille is expecting this duel in Rome after three defeats. And all of this has in fact started with a home defeat from Lazio in Europa League, after which they also in French Ligue 1 lost from the leading PSG without any goals scored and last weekend as guests against the second Montpellier.
On the other hand, Marseille has already dropped to sixth place on the table and they have two points less than the fourth Lyon, while the third Lille has six points more. In addition, after two defeats in Europa League and one draw, they have only some theoretical chances to win placement in the knockout stage, but for now they are not allowed to lose against Lazio. We should also add that only the injured center-back Rolando will not be able to play in this match.
Probable lineups Olympique Marseille: Mandanda – Sakai, Caleta-Car, Kamara, Amavi – Luiz Gustavo, Sanson – Thauvin, Payet, Ocampos – Mitroglou
