Those who are looking for Lazio vs Sevilla prediction and betting tips are at the right place. We are now going to discuss the forms of these two clubs, their injury problems, and much more. Keep on reading to find out who is going to get one step closer to the next stage of the Europa league once the clash of the Olimpico finishes.
The year didn’t start too well for Lazio, at least not in Serie A. They lost their first two games in the league, but to be frank, they played against some really tough teams. They lost to Napoli at San Paulo, and against the strongest team in the league, Juventus. And after those two defeats, Lazio got back into a good form, beating Inter in Coppa Italia, as well as Frosinone and Empoli in Serie A.
And this Thursday, they’re facing one of the toughest challenges so far. They’re playing against Sevilla, who are one of the main favorites for winning the trophy of Europa league. What is giving their fans a lot of hope ahead of this duel is that this team has been great at home. Actually, they lost only five matches at the Olimpico In 2018.
What’s got to worry them is that several of their key men are either injured or struggling with fitness at the moment. Their best striker Ciro Immobile is definitely out of this game while a few others are still doubtful. And considering that Ciro Immobile has been their top scorer, Lazio are probably going to struggle to score many goals against Seville. Actually, he’s the guy who scored more than 1/3 of all Lazio goals in the Serie A.
Sevilla also have some problems with injuries, but unlike Lazio, all of their key men are fit and ready for the game. Still, they haven’t been in a too good form lately. Since the year started, they lost five games in all competitions. And in those games, their defense was terrible. The worst thing is that they’ve been horrendous away from home. In fact, the reason why they are so high on the Spanish league table is that they play very well at home.
When it comes to away games, the team from Seville has been very poor lately. They’ve lost each of their four previous games on the road. And the goal difference in those four games was 11:1. It’s needless to say that all of this is making them pretty big underdogs in Thursday’s game.
Still, no one can deny that Sevilla have a lot of talent in the locker room, at least equally as much as Lazio. So, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if they managed to get a good result in Italy. And by the good result, I mean even a draw!

Lazio vs Sevilla Match Prediction
This is going to be a very tough match, as not only are both teams similar in terms of player quality but also because they use basically the same tactic. But, without Immobile in the team, Lazio do not look stronger than Sevilla even when playing at home. On the other hand, Sevilla are dreadful on the road. The conclusion is that we’ll probably see a draw here!
