Lazio were on a 3 games winning streak before they were trashed 3-0 by Inter Milan last week, but they showed enough character to bounce back from that with a 4-1 win over SPAL in their very next game. They have the luxury of playing an in-form Ciro Immobile and they would be hoping he can fire them to victory against Marseille.
Lazio are impressing greatly in the final third and this game offers them the chance to challenge for the top spot with Eintracht Frankfurt, so a win in this game would offer them very important three points.
Marseille are in dire need of the points in this game. They were beaten by Lazio at home 3-1 two weeks back, and they have also lost to PSG 0-2, and Montpellier 3-0 before this fixture, so they would be the least confident side ahead of this game.
Their defensive problems has become their Achilles heels this season and if they don’t fix it, they risk losing this game and exiting the Europa League at the group stage.
