Reason for Lazio vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions
Lazio comes into this match on the back of a 3-0 loss to Sampdoria, extending their winless league run to three games – two losses and a draw. Even at home, Lazio has won two of their last six competitive matches, losing three and drawing one. The hosts have lost four of the previous six Champions League matches, winning only twice. If we go back to 2003, the last eight home games of Lazio in the Champions League returned four draws and two victories, while they lost only two. Simone Inzaghi’s side has booked a total of 7 points in their last six outings. In contrast, the number of goals scored against them in those same games is 11. Ciro Immobile was the best scorer in the Serie A last season with 35 goals, and he scored the most goals in Europe, a great player who does not spare the opponent’s net. All praise for him. Sergej Milinković-Savić plays perfectly without a mistake, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy, and many clubs are interested in his arrival.
Borussia Dortmund travels to Rome after a 1-0 win over Hoffenheim in a Bundesliga weekend game. The German club has now won four of its six competitive matches of the season and lost only twice – one from Bayern Munich in the Super Cup. They have a great team with a lot of young players. The only concern for Borussia Dortmund will be that they lost their last three Champions League away matches. Additionally, they lost their previous three Champions League matches in Italy. Axel Witsel commands midfield, and the Belgian international does not allow the opponent much action in the middle. There is also Julian Brandt, who puts confident performances and plays without error. In the beginning, he had offers from some bigger clubs, but a move to Borussia Dortmund proved to be a perfect choice. Sancho creates a lot of troubles for opponents on the right-wing. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, he has fantastic dribbles, and many teams are interested in signing the English international.
It will be an exciting clash in which both sides will have a chance to win. However, the hosts have to make significant changes in their team, and that could be a chance for the guests to take the victory.
We can expect a great fight between these two teams, and both should be able to score. We don’t think the nets will remain still after 90 minutes.
