Salzburg v Lazio Betting Preview
Venue: Stadion Salzburg
Channel: BT Sport
Salzburg’s incredible undefeated, 19-game run finally came to an end last week as Lazio brought the Austrian side back to reality when they lost 4-2 at the Stadio Olimpico.
Despite this loss, Salzburg have both the advantage of playing at home and an important 2 away goals thanks to Berisha and Minamino’s strikes. However, the need to score 2 goals to progress could be their downfall, as this match will have them in an attacking mindset, making Salzburg prone to Lazio´s vicious front line.
Ciro Immobile is in fine form, scoring 27 goals so far this season- of which 7 have been in the Europa League- and providing a further 9 assists. The Biancocelesti are 4th in the league as they battle with Inter and Roma for the Champions League spots, but winning the tournament could make that battle easier- and it seems like they are real contenders.
After their city rivals shocked the football world by knocking out Barcelona, Lazio will also want to progress as much as possible. Salzburg will also be eager to progress and try and get a taste of European success.
Diadie Samassekou is banned for the home side.
Marco Parolo is a doubt for Lazio.
Potential Salzburg Starting XI: Walke, Lainer, Ramalho, Caleta-Car, Ulmer, Yabo, Haidara, Berisha, Schlager, Gulbrandsen, Dabbur.
Potential Lazio Starting XI: Strakosha, Felipe, de Vrij, Radu, Basta, Luis Alberto, Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Lulic, Anderson, Immobile.
