After an interesting first leg between the two sides, the tie is delicately poised at 2 a piece. Both teams took the lead, before being pegged back by the opposition and eventually sharing the spoils. Dynamo Kyiv go into the game, having only lost two home Europa League fixtures since 2002, a record that includes 18 wins and 13 draws. With the Ukrainian side boosted by their two away goals, the match may become a war of attrition rather than an end-to-end spectacle.

A terrific start to the season was halted by the winter break, causing Lazio to enter a poor run of form. Extra pressure has now been heaped onto their European games, with fans desperate to progress to the Quarter finals. The biancocelesti are winless in four, meaning top goalscorer Ciro Immobile will have to make sure he remembers his shooting boots (34 goals in 36 competitive appearances suggests he usually does).

Team News

Kyiv will host the tie without Ukranian international Denys Garmash, after the midfield was sent off in the first leg. Whilst Lazio will travel to Kyiv without their preferred right wing back, Adam Marusic, as well as experienced defender Martin Caceres.

Potential Dynamo Kyiv Starting XI: Boyko, Kedziora, Burda, Kadar, Pivaric, Buyalskiy, , Morozyuk, Shaparenko, Tsygankov, Moraes.
