Lazio-Legia Warsaw Preview
Lazio will host polish minnows Legia Warsaw on thursday night in Warsaw for what is the fifth game in their respective Europa League group. A win would see Lazio through to the knockout rounds while Legia are already eliminated and have nothing to play for, one would imagine this will be an easy task for the biancocelesti but Legia will provide a stern test as they do not want to go out without a bang.
Lazio have two wins in their last five games and that came against Apollon Limassol two weeks ago and Legia were the other ones who fell to Lazio , the rest being loses. Both teams have been in terrible form. Lazio started the season off well but have since then drastically slowed down, as they have had trouble with injuries and star player Hernanes’ contract dispute.
Prediction, look for Lazio to win this game, especially since they are at home. Anything less than a win for the Romans will be seen as a massive disappointment, a game like this can help turn Lazio’s fortunes until the New Year.
