Europa League: If Nice and Lazio are two teams who like to keep the ball possession under their control, building up their plays from that…
The truth is that there is a world of distance between what the French side can do, at the moment, when compared to the quality that Lazio has been presenting match after match.
That quality gap will be evident on the 90 minutes in the field of Allianz Riviera.
Lucien Favre’s team, who was very close to getting into the Champions League, is trying to maintain their good European rhythm after comfortable wins over Zulte Waregem and Vitesse, as a way of forgetting how hard their life is on Ligue 1.
That got even worse since they lost their last 2 matches, against Marseille and Montpellier.
As for Lazio, they travelled to France very satisfied after their 2-1 win over Juventus this past weekend, a result that has made them catch Juventus on the league table of the Serie A and keep the distance to Napoli and Inter Milan, the two top teams at the moment.
Furthermore, it was with Napoli that the team from Rome suffered their only loss of the season. On the Europa League they have had some trouble beating Vitesse away from home, after having won 2-0 at home against Zulte Waregem.
Nice vs Lazio – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The two encounters between Nice and Lazio will be decisive to see who will finish in 1st and 2nd place of this group, since it seems clear that these two teams will be the ones to advance here.
And if it is important for Nice to establish this competition as a safe harbour, Lazio will also not want to miss out on this opportunity to show their strength and determination on this competition.
Two teams looking to score and with quality to do it more than once is what I expect of this match.
