Marseille – Lazio: forecast for the match of the Europa League
Jorge Sampaoli’s Marseille after three rounds in the Europa League has four points and is in the second position in group “E”. In the last match, the French were able to defend a goalless draw against Lazio in Rome, and before that, they beat Lokomotiv Moscow (2:0) at home.
In the French championship, the team is doing quite well, and after 12 matches, it occupies the third position, nine points behind the leader. In the previous meeting, Clermont was minimally beaten (1:0) away. Headed by Maurizio Sarri, Lazio scored one point less than his current opponent and is one line lower in the overall standings in the Europa League. The team finished all their matches in a draw, conceded only one goal, and distinguished themselves.

Free prediction for the match
Marseille played sharper in attack in the Roman match and was closer to the set of three points but failed to convert their advantage into goals. We suppose that at Velodrome, the hosts will be very aggressive in their attacks, and they have much more chances to win.

Lazio doesn’t look like the opponent that can win in France. We believe that the fight will follow the same scenario as the first meeting between the teams. The hosts seem to be preferable to the role of the winner of the pair, but we propose to hedge the bet.
Our forecast is a handicap (0) for Marseille. In the Roman game, both clubs had good scoring opportunities, and the zeros on the scoreboard are more like a coincidence. In the second match, the teams will most likely prefer to play actively in attack, hoping to score more opponents. Our second bet will be – total of over 2.5 goals.
