Salzburg vs Lazio – Betting Tip and Prediction:
There is a great trend on Lazio’s matches this season, namely the fact that both teams usually score goals.
That’s exactly what happened in the 1st leg as well, where Lazio gained an advantage on the tie by winning 4-2.
Salzburg has already played 5 matches on this Europa League knockout round and we have seen both teams scoring in 4 of them, which leads me into believing tomorrow will not be any different.
I also see a lot of value in exploring the winners’ market in favour of the hosts, since they don’t have any loss on their last 25 matches played at home in all competitions.
