Lazio vs Olympique de Marselha Betting Tips
A Lazio victory married to the success or draw of the Eintracht Frankfurt, which faces, at the same time, the Apollon, in Cyprus, would define, with two days in advance, the two classified for the next stage of the Europa League.
It would be a great deal for the Romans, who are in a row in the Italian Championship. On Sunday, November 4, also in the Olympic stadium, they thrashed Spal 4-1. They reached the 21-point mark (seven wins and four losses). They occupy the fifth place, still outside the classification zone for the Champions League edition 2019/2010. The score, however, is the same as Milan, which takes advantage of the tiebreaker criteria.
Should Lazio get their place in the UEFA Europa League stage two and can spare the use of starters in the remaining matches, coach Vicenzo Montella would be able to focus exclusively on trying to put the team in the Italian Serie A elite squad .
To ‘exclude’ Olympique Marseille’s competition, he has a certain constraint on the lineup. Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva was thwarted by the Italian club’s medical department.
Also with problem in the thigh is the Croatian midfielder Milan Badelj. His bruise, however, is of lesser gravity. Thus, there is still the possibility that he will be released for the match. It will, however, have to undergo a new evaluation before the confrontation.Olympique suffered on Sunday, November 4, their third straight loss. Closing the twelfth round of the French Championship, it took 3 to 0 of Montpellier. Parked in 19 points (six wins, one draw and five losses), he fell to sixth on the leaderboard.A disappointing campaign for a club that reached the decision of the previous edition of the Europa League having lost the final to Atletico Madrid. It was hoped that this year he would take a step further by passing the season in the qualifying zone for the Champions League of Europe.
It has not even managed to figure in the block that would go to the next edition of the Europa League and is seriously threatened to fall already in the first phase of the current edition of the tournament. Even the draw on Thursday is a result considered bad for the French team’s pretensions to the tournament.
