Lazio vs Dynamo Kiev – Europa League: In another of the several matches taking place this Thursday of European competition
Counting towards the Europa League’s 8th finals, the local side Lazio and the visiting side Dynamo Kiev face off in the city of Rome, at the Stadio Olimpico, in what will be the third meeting between these two sides in their history, with their last encounter being in 1999, on the Champions League’s group stage back then.
The home side is coming off an excellent season in terms of results, football played and standings, being on the Champions League’s qualification spots for next season and also coming off a good performance in terms of the Europa League’s group stage, having, meanwhile, eliminated Steaua Bucharest categorically, on the previous round.
The team is coming off 2 consecutive losses, against AC Milan and Juventus, that stopped a good streak of results of the team, where they’ve gotten 3 consecutive wins, having scored 10 goals and only conceding 1.
As for the Ukrainians, they are making a decent season so far, although far from convincing, having a considerable advantage to Shakhtar in terms of the league and having some difficulties to eliminate AEK on the previous round of the Europa League, only managing to advance due to the rule of the away goals.
The team is coming off a streak of somewhat inconsistent results, getting all the possible results on their last 3 matches.
Lazio vs Dynamo Kiev – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Upon a Dynamo Kiev relatively more consistent on the defensive point of view when compared to the Romans and that will look, in my opinion, to take this knockout tie to be decided at home.
I believe we’ll have a more defensive posture of the visitors here, and with the hosts having the initiative. I see this encounter ending with only 1 or 2 goals scored.
