Nice welcome Lazio at the Allianz Riviera on Thursday evening, with both sides looking to maintain their 100% perfect start to their Europa League group K campaign.

Meanwhile, Lazio won 2-0 at home over Waregem thanks to goals from Felipe Caicedo and Ciro Immobile.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Lazio head into this tie high on confidence following their triumph over Juventus at the weekend and I’m backing them to build on this momentum and to pick up another win here, particularly because Atletico Madrid’s recent run of form. I’m also expecting goals as Nice have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net recently, while Lazio have been scoring goals for fun over the past month.

Nice Preview

Nice have struggled in Ligue 1 recently, but the good news is that they have enjoyed a perfect start to their Europa League group stage campaign. They are currently on a three-game winless streak in Ligue 1, registering two defeats and one draw in the process. However, they looked very solid in the Europa League, winning back-to-back games over Waregem and Vitesse, scoring eight goals and conceding just once in this term. They sit at the top of the group K table tied on six points with the second-placed and their Thursday’s opponents Lazio. The bad news is that Nice looked terrible at the back over the past month, conceding at least two goals in three of their last four games across all competitions. At the other end of the field, Nice are the Europa League’s joint goalscorers at the moment with eight goals under their belts, including four from their topscorer Alassane Plea. Their home record in the Europa League has seen them win three and lose two of their five games, keeping two clean sheets in the process. However, their recent home form over the past five months has been a complete mixed bag with four defeats, four wins and two draws in their last ten home fixtures across all competitions.

Nice Team News

Wallace, Federico Marchetti and Jordan Lukaku are all doubts, but Felipe Anderson and Dusan Basta are still on the sidelines due to injury.

Lazio Preview

On the other hand, Lazio have been in terrific shape over the past three months, losing just once in their last 15 games across all competitions. The Biancocelesti enter the fray on the back of a four-game winning streak across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. In addition, they should feel confident ahead of this tie as they managed to beat Juventus 1-2 away from home in the Serie A at the weekend. Regarding their Europa League campaign, Lazio picked up back-to-back wins over Vitesse and Waregem, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, Lazio are undefeated in six European away games, but overall they are unbeaten in ten Europa League away fixtures. At the moment, the Biancocelesti are currently on a nine-game winning streak across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in eight of these. Ciro Immobile has been in fantastic shape for Lazio in this early part of the season, scoring 13 goals across all competitions. Actually, the 27-year-old striker is the Serie A’s topscorer at the moment with eleven goals under his belt.
