After the beautiful victory against Feyenoord, Sarri’s team flies to Herning: for bookmakers they are favorites, but beware of absentees
Winning to continue on the wings of enthusiasm. Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio are ready to take the field for their first European away match of the season after their debut victory against Feyenoord. The biancocelesti fly to Denmark to challenge Albert Capellas’ Midtjylland at the MCH Arena in Herning. Teams on the field at 18.45, the Montenegrin Nikola Dabanovic to direct the match.
MOMENT OF FORM
Only nine points in ten days won by Midtjylland, fresh from the draw away on the field of Nordsjælland. Even the debut in Europe was not exciting: he immediately lost at the hands of Sturm Graz despite the numerical superiority in the final due to the expulsion of Hierlander. The biancocelesti have experienced an important week marked first by the success of their European debut against Feyenoord and then by the one against Verona. However, some defections risk changing the coach’s plans: Pedro and Zaccagni in doubt, as well as Lazzari, will leave room for an unprecedented formation in view of Thursday’s away match.
Midtjylland and Lazio will clash for the first time in their history. The Danes have already faced Italian teams on four occasions: double confrontation with Napoli, by Sarri, in the group stage of the 2015/2016 Europa League and with Atalanta. The Danes have never won with three losses and a draw. Lazio have previously challenged a Danish team, Copenhagen, eliminating them from qualifying for the Champions League in 2011.
For the bookies, the biancocelesti will come out as winners from the MCH Arena even if the match is far from obvious given the positive roadmap of the hosts in the Europa League, only one knockout in the last 7 matches. For this reason, an interesting combo can be that relating to 2 + Over 2.5 set at 2.70 on the board of Sisal and Pokerstars. Also to be considered is the possibility that Lazio take the lead in the first half and keep it in the second half: in this case the odds are set at 2.95 on Pokerstars.
For bookmakers, Lazio is the favorite team to win. A success for the Biancocelesti away from the 1.88 in Novibet until 1.91 in Betfair. Odds in perfect balance instead for 1 and X. A win by the hosts or a draw are worth from 3.60 for Pokerstars up to 3.90 for 888Sport. For the bettors it will be a match full of goals. Over 2.5 travels on Betfair’s 1.73, while the Under 2.5 stops at 2.18 by Leovegas and 888Sport. As for the exact results, the odds of a possible 1-1 set at 7.50 for both Sisal and Snai are interesting. A 1-0 Lazio win is worth 9.00 for Bet365 and Novibet. The 2-0 slightly raises the odds until Snai’s 11.00. A 1-0 success by Midtjylland is worth 13.50 for Novibet.
Ciro Immobile after returning to scoring against Verona also wants to unlock himself in the Europa League. A goal of him, as the first scorer, is quoted at 4.40 by Sisal. The second most anticipated player is Felipe Anderson: the Brazilian has already scored in all five editions of the Europa League played with the Lazio shirt. His sign is worth 9.00 for Bet365.
