Lazio (1) vs Nice (2)
Lazio are in great shape at the moment with 8 straight victories in all competitions and in Serie A they are standing with 6 straight wins including 2-1 away vs Juventus (3). They are coming from the easy 5-1 win away vs Benevento (20) last match. Its fair to consider the team as ready for the next round already, taking in mind that there is 8 points down to Vitesse (3) & Zulte Waregem (4) in this Europe League group. Lazio are still missing Anderson. Are also missing Mauricio, Basta & Immobile tonight and specially their top goalscorer Immobile will be missed here. Wallace reported doubtful.
Nice are in a opposite situation, and they are struggling. Although they are placed comfortably second in this group with 6 points so far they are struggling in the league where they are placed 17th, with 3-1-7 so far. In 5 away matches they only managed to score 1 goal and their away record is 1-0-4 with 1-9 in goal difference. But, even with a loss tonight, their chances are pretty big to qualify for the next round, and I think that is a huge factor ahead of this match. Nice last 5 matches: 0-0-5. Nice are missing Cyprien & Seri, 2 important players for them.
* Lazio won the reverse fixture 2 weeks ago with 1-3.
I expect Lazio to win tonight & confirm their qualification for the next round. They are huge favourites, and they should be able to win this match controlled, even with a rotation in their lineup. Nice knows they are in a good position with a loss here anyway, I think they will have their «must win» match vs Dijon in 3 days in the back of their minds. I expect Lazio to win this match with 2+ goals.
