Winless in their last five competitive matches, Lazio will welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to the Stadio Olimpico in the final Europa League group stage fixture, looking to get revenge on a disastrous 4-1 defeat in Germany.
The Biancocelesti have already secured their passage to the knockout stage of Europa League, having clinched three wins while suffered two losses in their opening five European clashes. Although they wrapped up nine points so far, the Eagles have struggled to keep a clean sheet in all five Europa Leauge games, while failed to hit the back of the net once in the process. What’s more, Simone Inzaghi’s players have also played out four draws in their previous five games across all competitions, in which they’ve conceded a minimum of one goal per match, while losing 2-0 to Apollon Limassol in the run.
Meanwhile, the visitors top Group H as one of three teams that have secured all five wins in the Europa League thus far. Furthermore, Die Adler have bagged at least two goals in each of their five wins in Europe, as their tally of 15 goals scored is the joint-best attacking record in the Europa League. On the other hand, Adi Hütter’s players have conceded just four goals, which place them among the strongest defensive sides in Europe’s second-tier competition. However, the German outfit come into this encounter after two straight Bundesliga defeats, including the one over Hertha last weekend in which they failed to find the back of the net.
