Sturm Graz vs Lazio Europa League Prediction by LeagueLane

Sturm Graz vs Lazio 
UEFA Europa League 
Date: Thursday, 6 October 2022 
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET 
Venue: Merkur-Arena. 

Both Lazio and Sturm Graz are in good form in their respective domestic leagues, but both failed to carry over this form into their Europa campaigns. 

As of now, the two squads are placed bottom-most in their group table, and pressure is upon them to start performing. Should they fail to take action now, their prospects of making it to the knockouts would hang in the balance. 

Sturm Graz are currently placed fourth in the group table, which only has four teams in total. They scored the least number of goals of the four teams, and conceded the second-most. 

However, they are in great form in the Austrian Bundesliga, and are finding the back of the net in plenty in those matches. 

Moreover, they are at home this Thursday, and will be cheered on by their loyal fans to go after a famous win. 

Meanwhile, Lazio are one of the titans of the Italian top flight – which is considered to be one of the best leagues in Europe. They are in great form in the Serie A, and like their counterparts, they too are slotting in goals in huge numbers. 

However, they are placed second to last in their group in the Europa, and they let in the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition. 

Moreover, goals also came in plenty whenever these two teams locked horns in the past. 

By the looks of things, expect a high-scoring affair this Thursday between the two squads.
