Lazio – Dynamo Kyiv
Lazio hosts Dynamo Kyiv in a match from the 1/8-finals of the UEFA Europa League. Let’s examine this clash in the Italian capital in our predictions football 1×2.
Lazio reached the 1/8-finals of the Europa League after eliminating the romanian FCSB, previously known as Steaua. Lazio surprisingly lost the first leg in Bucuresti with 0-1, but in the rematch Simone Inzaghi’s boys were merciless – 5-1 and a total domination over the Romanian side.
Although they are still in the fight for a Top 4 finish in the Serie A and a return to the Champions League, do not make any mistake here – Lazio will try to reach the Europa League final in Lyonnais. It’s been awhile since Lazio were participating in an European final, so their fans are hungry for something like this. Lazio have a good enough squad to make a good run in Europa League. With a little bit of a luck with the draw, they could do it.
Meanwhile Dynamo Kyiv reached the 1/8-finals after two draws against the Greek AEK Athens in the previous round. A 1-1 draw in Athens and a 0-0 draw in Kyiv were enough for Dynamo to continue in the competition. This was not the most impressive performance ever, but for them it was enough to reach the next stage of the competition.
Despite of being underdogs against Lazio, Dynamo are a dangerous team who have some really good players. Do not be so quick to write them off in this clash. They will have the second leg being played at Kyiv and it’s always difficult to play there. Dynamo have their chances.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Europa League clash between Lazio and Dynamo Kyiv. Good luck, pals!
