Porto will welcome Lazio to Estádio Do Dragão for a matchday 0 fixture in Europe UEFA Europa League.
Lazio’s recent game against Galatasaray ended in a home 0-0 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points.
The season has just started and is too early to tell, but looks very solid on paper.
Lazio has picked up 9 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Aquile wins 1.33 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Lazio kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
Biancocelesti got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Thursday.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory.My prediction is Porto to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 0.84 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 17% of Porto’s home and Lazio’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Thursday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 9% of Porto’s home and Lazio’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
