Lazio vs Nice by JuanO
Nice are in second place with 6 points and a big win today could improve their chances of finishing first after 6 games. The visitors from France are on a bad run with 5 consecutive losses. While losses against Lazio, Marseille and PSG can be excused, the defeats against Montpellier and Strasbourg can't be easily explained. In 3 of 5 of these losses Nice have scored a goal and the game against Montpellier they thoroughly dominated, but couldn't get the right result. Nice are a well balanced team which links very well between the lines of defenders, midfielders and attackers. Nice's attackers are in for a very good game today. Plea has scored 4 goals so far in this Europa League campaign, which is tied for second place and Balotelli has played Italian teams for his whole life and knows how to deactivate such defenses. Their first goalkeeper Yoan Cardinale will not help his team today, along with defender Marlon and midfielders Saint-Maximin, Seri and Cyprien.
Lazio are showing great form this season so far. They are tied for third place with Juventus and are only three points adrift off the top. They have accumulated eight wins in a row in all competitions, and thirteen times in fifteen games they have tasted victory, losing only to Napoli. Lazio have scored 31 goals and conceded 12 in 11 league games, which makes for an average of almost 4 goals per game. The head coach of hosts, Simone Inzaghi likes to rotate his squad and has declared that he is going to do so today. Even though key attacker for Lazio and league topscorer Ciro Immobile is not going to feature today, Lazio have more than enough to score at least once, which is the most important thing for this tip. Defender Walace and defensive midfielder Felipe Anderson will miss today's game through injury.
