Sturm Graz vs Lazio Tips and Prediction

Lazio began their Group F campaign with a 4-2 home victory over Feyenoord at the beginning of September, but shortly before the international break, they were shocked by a 5-1 loss at FC Midtjylland.

A week after scoring the game’s first goal at Stadio Olimpico, the Biancocelesti found themselves down two goals at the halftime break and then conceded three more times in the second half, all while controlling possession in Denmark.

Even though Maurizio Sarri’s team finished fifth last season to qualify for Europe, they continue to have qualities that indicate they are legitimate top-four contenders in Italy.

Lazio sits just three points behind Napoli and Atalanta in the Serie A standings after a comprehensive demolition of Spezia last time out. The team’s confidence is at an all-time high as a result of four-goal victories on either side of the international break.

Sarri’s team has now won each of their last three league games without conceding a goal, a feat the club had not accomplished in seven years. The team has scored 17 goals domestically so far (only Napoli have managed more). Additionally, they have only allowed five goals overall.

They must now apply this form to their most recent international assignment, where they will play Sturm Graz for the first time since defeating their Austrian opponents in the UEFA Cup almost two decades ago.

Curiously, Sturm Graz earned three points from their debut Europa League match before having a much tougher time on the second matchday, much like Lazio.

Die Schwoazn had a successful start thanks to their 1-0 victory over Midtjylland at Merkur-Arena, but seven days later they were destroyed 6-0 at De Kuip.

Albian Ajeti, on loan from Celtic, scored the game’s first goal as head coach Christian Ilzer’s team defeated Austria Wien 3-0 on the road on Sunday. With back-to-back victories, they are now second in the Bundesliga standings, just behind defending champions RB Salzburg.

However, the Styrian team has only won one of its last 12 Europa League games, suffering nine losses in the process. They must improve this record despite playing tough opponents twice in a week if they hope to bounce back from their defeat in Rotterdam and ultimately advance from the group.

Conclusion

Lazio has dropped eight of their last ten Europa League away games, so success on their return trip outside of Rome shouldn’t be taken for granted. However, in what may be a very open encounter, their superior individual quality should enable them to defeat a weak Sturm Graz team.
