Football News – Vitesse – Lazio
Vitesse hosts Lazio in a match from Group K of the Europa League.
Alongside Nice, Lazio are the favourites to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition. They have one of the best teams in Italy at the moment and their 4-1 win over Milan during the weekend is proving it. Lazio have quality players in all zones of the pitch and it’s not a surprise that they will enter this game as favourites.
Their main goal this season will be qualifying for the Champions League. If they can’t do it through Serie A, they will try to do it by winning the Europa League. It’s a long shot, but this team certainly have the potential to do it.
Of course, it depends on their overall motivation in the competition. Some teams are not always giving their all in the Europa League, choosing to concentrate on their domestic leagues. It remains to be seen if Lazio will be one of these teams or not.
How we said, in their last game they beat Milan with 4-1 at home. It was a great win, especially after a very new and better version of Milan. This win certainly made Lazio’s supporters to trust more on their team. So far Lazio have two wins and one draw in the Serie A, being unbeaten in the first three rounds of the new campaign.
Vitesse on the other hand also started the new season in the Eredivisie in a positive way. They lost one of their matches – against AZ at home, but won their other three. Right now Vitesse are second in the Eredivisie standings, being only behind the champion and current leader Feyenoord.
How we said, Lazio and Nice are favourites to qualify for the next stage of the Europa League, but do not underrestimate Vitesse. Dutch teams are always good!
