Lazio vs Marseille Prediction & Match Preview

Lazio vs Marseille
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 8 November 2018
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

Two of the best teams from their respective nations will meet again this year in Round 4 of the Europa League this Thursday as Lazio welcomes Marseille.

Group H is considered widely as the group of death and the points table shows it’s not that way. The hosts are 2nd in the group with 2 wins and a surprise defeat to Frankfurt, who are at the top.

The Eagles are 5th in Serie A at the moment with 7 wins in 11 matches and are just 4 points from Inter who are second at the moment.  In their previous 6 games across all venues, they have won 4 and lost 2. Over 2.5 goals came in total in 4 of those games.

They have only lost once in last 6 home games, and have won all the remaining games. In 4 of the last 5 home matches over 2.5 goals were produced.

A win in this game will send them to the top of the group depending on Frankfurt’s result, this Thursday.

The “Olympians” are currently a disappointing side who are struggling for a win in both the domestic and European stage. They are 3rd in the group table with just 1 point, losing 2 games and conceding 7 goals in the process.

Currently, the team from France are on a 3 match losing streak and have only 2 wins in their recent 6 games across all venues.

In their last 6 away matches, they have won 2 and lost 3, conceding 14 goals in those games as well. They are also lagging back in the Ligue 1, as they are at the 6th position, losing 5 of their opening 12 matches.

Lazio vs Marseille: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The only competitive match between these two sides was the reverse fixture at Marseille which Lazio won 3-1.

Lazio vs Marseille: Prediction

Lazio has only lost 2 of their 7 home games, and those defeats came against strong teams like Inter and Napoli. So with 4 of their 5 recent home games going in their favor, I don’t see the visitors winning this one with a poor away form as theirs. The previous h2h also gives us a clear difference between the performances of these two teams. So we can bet on the Italians to win with 1.80 odd

Marseille is the team which conceded most goals till now in Ligue 1 and the UEL table. There is no chance to say they won’t concede in this match against a strong attacking team like Lazio at home. Also with Lazio’s recent 4 home matches and Marseille’s recent 7 fixtures having a score of over 2.5 we can bet on this upcoming game to have a score of over 2.5 goals with 1.56 odd.

Lazio vs Marseille: Betting Tips

  • Lazio to win @ 1.80 (4/5).
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.56 (5/9).
