Vitesse vs Lazio: Prediction

In this fixture, the visitors are the favourites. Lazio is expected to fight with Nice for the first place in their group, and this is a great fixture for them to open the group stage. Even though they will not play on their turf, we believe they will return to Italy with the easily gained three points. Also, there should be three or more goals in total on the match, since most of their respective prior matches were high-scoring affairs.
