Lazio are playing against Sevilla in a match of the 1/16-finals of Europa League. The home team finished second in their Group H and couldn’t overcome Eintracht Frankfurt from the first place. In Serie A, Lazio are on the seventh place in the standings and are fighting for the positions that give rights to play in Europe next season. Simone Inzaghi’s squad is playing well at home, but the same cannot be said for their performance as guests. On Stadio Olimpico, Lazio have just four defeats since the start of the season, but they were against the leading teams in Serie A – Juventus, Napoli and Inter, and versus Eintracht Frankfurt in Europa League.
Sevilla won Group J convincingly, but this was expected because of the absence of another strong European team in it. Sevillistas have a strange season so far, alternating a series of strong with weak games. At the one point, Sevilla were in the fight for the La Liga trophy, but recently their form dropped and currently the team led by Pablo Machín is on the fourth place in the standings. The White and Reds didn’t start 2019 in the best possible way and are on a run of four consecutive defeats as guests in all competitions.
Sevilla are not in good form, but Lazio are inconsistent and unpredictable. Although as guests Sevilla are shaky, they are still the most experienced team in the competition and are capable of surprising everyone. Lazio conceded 11 goals in the group stage and didn’t have a clean sheet at home, while Sevilla didn’t score in an away fixture just once.
