Porto to Win

A 3-0 win at Stadio Olimpico rekindled Lazio’s top-four ambitions. They will be on the road for this fixture, where their last outing was a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of AC Milan. Porto will feel confident against the other Roman outfit as they have won six of their last seven home fixtures. Their last home game against Lazio was one to remember as they earned a 4-1 victory.

Over 2.5 Goals

Thanks to their superior firepower, Porto have raced to the top of points table in the Super Lig. Their might will be questioned by Lazio. Maurizio Sarri will surely have some designs to counter their attacking threat but it looks unlikely he will manage to have it. The Serie A outfit are susceptible at the back and have the worst defensive record in the top-8. However, they stand only behind champions Inter Milan with their 52 goal tally and should give us a high scoring affair at the Estádio do Dragão.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

While we have talked about Lazio’s defensive issues, Porto have fared much better in their domestic competition. They have allowed only 16 goals from their 22 Primeira Liga fixtures. Quality opposition can damage them as Sporting Lisbon showed over the weekend. With both sides scoring goals for fun and having a tendency to forget about affairs at the back, expect goals at either end of the pitch in this Thursday night Europa League affair.

Porto vs Lazio Fixture Preview

FC Porto

After being in the shadows of Benfica and Sporting Lisbon, Porto has got the ball rolling towards Primeira Liga contention. They have a six-point lead at the top and will be confident of adding to their tally as the season progresses. More important for Sérgio Conceição will be their Europa League ambitions. They struggled in the Champions League and he will want them to press ahead in the sister competition to get better calls from the continent.

SS Lazio

Maurizio Sarri lifted the Serie A trophy with Juventus with a team that was not completely his. In the year prior, he masterminded Chelsea’s Europa League triumph, his first taste of silverware. The chain-smoking manager will not relent on the competition with Lazio while matters get complicated in the race for top-four in Serie A. The Romans have been in a good nick of form of late earning four wins in their last six outings.
