Albert Capellas’ players were defeated in the first round in Graz by Sturm 0-1. They conceded a goal after eight minutes, and despite the fact that they had one more player on the pitch for the last 20 minutes due to the opponent’s red card, the Midtjylland players failed to equalize the score.
Last season, they were eliminated in the group stage of this competition, so they aim to take at least one step higher in the current season, but the realization of the goal did not go as desired. They will have to avoid defeat against their favored opponents in this round, but their form is not promising.
The players of the Danish club registered only one triumph in the last nine games in all competitions. Benfica easily eliminated them in the Champions League qualifiers, Sturm defeated them in the first round of the Europa League, while in the domestic championship they won only 10 points in the first nine games, so they are in eighth place in the Danish Superliga standings.
Lazio is a regular participant in this competition. This is their 10th appearance since 2009, and they reached the quarter-finals twice – in 2013 and 2018. They opened the current campaign in the best possible way, with a convincing 4-2 win against Feyenoord. They played the first half of this match brilliantly – thanks to the goals of Luis Alberto, Felipe Anderson, and Vecino, they were leading 3-0, so it was already clear who would win.
They have recorded solid results in Serie A as well. They are currently in the seventh position with 11 points, and the current leader Napoli has only three points more. After winning the first points in the Europa League, the Biancocelesti defeated Verona 2-0 in front of their fans last weekend, so they are in a mini-series of two consecutive triumphs.
Coach Maurizio Sarri will not be able to count on two injured players for this match. Manuel Lazzari injured his hamstring against Verona, while Pedro has been sidelined for some time with an ankle injury.
This will be the first official match between these two teams in a European competition.
Midtjylland (4-3-3): Lossl; Dalsgaard, Sviatchenko, Juninho, Paulinho; Dreyer, Sorensen, Evander; Isaksen, Kaba, Sisto
Lazio (4-3-3): Dirigirano; Marusic, Romagnolli, Patric, Hysaj; Basic, Milinkovic-Savic, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Zaccagni, Immobile
Lazio plays worse road games in Europe than at home and this is an opportunity for the Danish footballers to avoid defeat. Bianocelesti celebrated only once in the last 13 European visits. We believe that we will see an efficient match and that both teams will score at least one goal.
