Lazio and Atletico Madrid Meet in Group E of the Champions League
5265

Group E is perhaps one of the most open groups in the Champions League this season and on the 19th of September we have a meeting between Lazio and Atletico Madrid.

The game will be played at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome and the hosts are currently 15th in Serie A on 3 points while the visitors are 7th in La Liga on 7 points.

Lazio come into the game on the back of a 3-1 loss at Juventus in Serie A on the weekend. It took just 10 minutes for Juventus to open the scoring and they added a second goal 16 minutes later.

Lazio pulled a goal back in the 64th minute but conceded their third goal of the match shortly after to come away from Turin with nothing to show for their effort.

The defeat at Juventus means Lazio have lost 3 of their 4 competitive fixtures this season, with all 4 games coming in Serie A.

They started the season with a 2-1 loss at Lecce and followed that with a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of newly promoted Genoa.

However, Lazio did produce a good result when they beat defending champions, Napoli, 2-1 away from home.

We must go back to 2021 to find the last time Lazio were in the Champions League and they have failed to win any of their last 4 matches in the competition.

Both teams have scored in each of Lazio’s 8 most recent Champions League matches.

Atletico Madrid travel to Rome having suffered a 3-0 defeat at Valencia in La Liga on the weekend.

Having conceded in the 5th minute, Atletico Madrid were 2-0 down at the interval and it did not get any better in the second half as Valencia scored their third goal of the game.

The loss at Valencia was the first defeat for Atletico Madrid this season and they have played 4 fixtures, all in the Spanish league.

Atletico Madrid started the season with a 3-1 home win over Granada and followed that with a 0-0 draw at Real Betis.

The best performance of the season to date came in the 7-0 home thrashing of Rayo Vallecano in La Liga.

Trends show Atletico Madrid have won only 1 of their last 6 matches in the Champions League. They have lost each of their last 4 Champions League games on the road.

Team news: Lazio have no major injury concerns but Maurizio Sarri may make some changes to his starting XI following the loss at Juventus. Matteo Guendouzi could come into central midfield.

Atletico Madrid travel without injured midfield duo Koke and Rodrigo De Paul plus Thomas Lemar could be out for some time having picked up an injury on the weekend.

Every point is going to count in this Champions League group and it could be Atletico Madrid who get off to a good start.

They have the most recent experience in the Champions League and the forward pairing of Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann could make the difference.

We expect to see both teams scoring and Atletico Madrid to take maximum points.
