A solid performance is needed by the home side

After starting their Europa League on a losing note, Lazio are undefeated in four games in Group E winning two and drawing two. In fact, their only defeat in matchday one was against Galatasaray 1-0. Hence, the Biancoceleste need to beat the Turks by two goals to clinch the first position of the group. By winning the group, the teams get to play the second leg of the knockout stages at home and avoid playing other group winners.

That defeat in Istanbul came despite the Italians having the better chances in the match, five shots on target to be exact. However, Sarri’s team followed that game with a series of fine performances in the UEL. To point out, Lazio have three clean sheets in the last four games. As for their overall form, the Biancoceleste are winless in their last two home games and need a solid performance here to clinch the top spot.

Galatasaray to maintain their undefeated run in the UEL

A win and a draw every other game saw Galatasaray gather 11 points (W3, D2) after five rounds and sit comfortably on top of Group E. Nonetheless, the Turks need to avoid losing by more than two goals to maintain their position. In all their five matches, Galatasaray have been very dominating and never conceded first. Moreover, they have the same number of goals conceded as Lazio with three.

However, their performances in the Turkish League have not been as impressive. Notably, the Turkish side are winless in four games and are currently in the seventh position in the league. Furthermore, they have not won in their last three away matches winning just two in their last ten. In effect, coach Fatih Terim will hope his team can keep their European form and travel to Rome with the intention of ending the group stage without defeats.

Lazio vs Galatasaray Prediction

Lazio’s last win in Serie A away to Sampdoria 1-3 will reignite some of their confidence. The Biancoceleste were winless in two matches before that, conceding eight goals along the way. Thus to win this match, Sarri needs a similar offensive performance from his team and especially Immobile.

On the other hand, Galatasary look very determined to do well in Europe. Gala – who are the only Turkish team who have won a European trophy  – showed their intentions in their previous five games. Still, Terim has to reorganize his defense after conceding in five of their last six games.

We think Lazio will put the pressure on Galatasaray to open the scoring early. However, the Turks’ defense have been hard to break down in the UEL with three clean sheets. As a result, we will back under 3.5 goals in this match which has a 60% chance according to statistics.
