Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Lazio play host to Sturm Graz at their Stadio Olimpico in the Europa League round 4. The two teams played out a goalless draw in Austria a week ago, but the Biancocelesti are seen as hot favourites to win Thursday’s clash. Bertini has joined Casale and Fares in the recovery room, while experienced attacker Ciro Immobile should continue to lead the line for the hosts.
Sturm, on the other hand, extended their winning run in Bundesliga to four matches against Tirol, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in “The Eternal City”. Lazio are a real force to be reckoned with at home, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Co. Midfielder Vesel Demaku is out of contention through injury, while defender Jusuf Gazibegovic serves a one-game ban against Sturm Graz.
Highlighted Player (Manuel Lazzari):
Born in Valdagno, Italy on November 29, 1993, Manuel Lazzari is a midfielder who plays for Serie A side SPAL. Lazzari played for the youth teams of Montecchio Maggiore at the start of his football career and in 2011 he moved to Delta Rovigo.
After spending the 2011/2012 season at the club, Manuel Lazzarri joined Giacomense in the summer of 2012 and it has to be noted that he made 24 appearances in the league for the club. At the end of the 2012/2013 season the 174-cm-tall footballer moved to SPAL and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the club.
Manuel Lazzari had seven assists in 39 appearances for SPAL in the 2016/2017 Serie B campaign and, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the Italian elite division. His main position is right midfield, but he can play as both right-back and right winger if needed. Manuel Lazzari’s contract with SPAL should expire on June 30, 2021.
