Lokomotiv Moscow vs Lazio Europa League Prediction by Leaguelane

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Lazio
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 25 November 2021
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: RZD Arena.

Lazio expected to breeze towards the first spot in the table, when the groups were announced for the Europa. However, it has proved to be wrong, and as of now, they are placed second in the table – trailing three points below the toppers.

It goes without saying that they are in urgent need for points, and a win is an absolute must. It helps that they are taking on the dead-last placed Lokomotiv Moscow – who easily are the worst squad in Group E.

By all means, expect a win for the Italians this Thursday.

Lokomotiv Moscow were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Galatasaray.

They had failed to keep clean sheets in their past eight games on the trot, and they have won just once on the road in the past two-month period.
