Cluj vs Lazio Match Preview
Lazio haven’t really been able to pick it up early in the new campaign and they now travel to Romania for their Europa League clash at CFR Cluj with a disappointing 2-1 loss at SPAL behind them, looking to recuperate quickly and kick off the campaign in Group E in good spirits.
Biancocelesti have beaten Sampdoria (0-3) on the opening day of the campaign but struggled to build on the dominant display, where they were first held off in city derby against Roma (1-1) and went on to fall victims in Ferrara. Simone Inzaghi’s men conceded a very late goal on Sunday and he has a task to lift them up quickly.
Cluj have outclassed Voluntari (5-0), on the other hand, and returned to the winning ways after three consecutive losses – where they saw Slavia Prague (1-0) punch their ticket to the Champions League Group stage and Astra (3-2) snatch all three Liga I points. They will now be desperate to build on such a boost to their confidence and we expect them just as motivated.
However, coping with Lazio should prove more of a challenge and Feroviarii will need more. They’ll hope to put on another solid display mainly through their defensive setup, but Dan Vasile Petrescu’s men could be in for the biggest challenge in front of the home fans right here.
With that in mind, we’re sticking with Lazio to outgun the rivals and snatch all three points, where an Away win looks the best value in the market at 4/5 with Ladbrokes. We’ve seen them scoring on the regular and we expect them in a good mood here as well.
Still, Biancocelesti’s defensive woes look more worrying and we thus expect another thrilling contest on their end here. We’ll thus also go for goals and Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at Evens with William Hill and looks like a great approach to the fixture.
