Lokomotiv vs Lazio prediction. Both teams are not in the best shape after the international break. So their duel, which will take place in the fifth round of the Europa League, may take place according to the most unexpected scenario.
Below we have prepared a detailed report about the game.
The only head-to-head confrontation of the represented clubs, held in Rome two months ago, ended with a convincing victory for Lazio (2-0). Let's see if the Italians will be able to consolidate their leadership in personal meetings.
The Lokomotiv is approaching the most important segment of the season in a semi-disassembled state, and there is a high probability that it will go on vacation in a bad mood. Over the past few years, the "red-green" has been noticeably slowing down in autumn, and it is a pity that this time this trend has not been broken. Life for Muscovites is also complicated by the fact that several leading players will not take part in the upcoming matches. Although it is worth admitting that even in the most combat-ready composition, they would hardly have achieved grandiose successes. In the domestic championship, the wards of Markus Gisdol will face fairly easy opponents, but in European competitions they will face difficult trials.
Lazio also faced personnel problems, which means that it will definitely not be possible to reach the playoffs of the current tournament without extra nerves. At the weekend, the representatives of Rome were defeated by Juventus, and it was clearly visible that they were sorely lacking Ciro Immobile. The Italian goaltender has always made a huge contribution to the common cause, so it is not surprising that his absence adversely affected the results of the club. Nevertheless, it is still not necessary to put an end to the prospects of the "blue and white", since they have repeatedly been selected from the most difficult situations.
