A Battle of European Titans in Rome

Key Stats
– Atletico Madrid have been winless in their last five Champions League encounters.
– Lazio have only secured one win in their first four Serie A games this season.
– Atletico Madrid have conceded in all of their recent four Champions League away matches.

When the whistle blows at Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Tuesday evening, it will mark the beginning of what promises to be a riveting Champions League Group E match between Lazio and Atletico Madrid. Lazio are treading these elite waters after a hiatus since 2021, whereas Atletico Madrid have long been familiar contenders in this competition. However, last season saw them bow out prematurely in the group stage.

The Path of the Roman Eagles

Lazio’s return to the Champions League podium has been nothing short of eventful. They managed to edge out several competitors last term, sealing a second-place finish behind Serie A champions Napoli. Lazio’s success recipe involved Maurizio Sarri’s possession-focused tactics and a strong defence. Yet, the onset of the 2023-24 season hasn’t been so kind to them.

With a mere three points from their first four Serie A matches, Lazio’s defence seems porous, conceding almost twice in every match. Despite a morale-boosting victory over reigning champions Napoli, subsequent defeats, including a 3-1 loss to Juventus, have raised eyebrows.

Lazio’s Previous European Endeavour

The last time Lazio graced the Champions League stage in the 2020-21 season, they successfully navigated the group stage. Their journey, however, ended in the round of 16 at the hands of Bayern Munich. This time around, Lazio will hope to at least match, if not surpass, that feat.

Atletico Madrid: The Return of Simeone

For Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone, this match will be somewhat of a homecoming. The former Lazio player, who won the Serie A-Coppa Italia double with them, will now guide Atletico Madrid from the sidelines. The two teams have not clashed in over a decade, but Simeone surely holds onto those memories.

Despite their previous successes, including lifting the Europa League trophy, Atletico have been elusive of the Champions League title. Their journey has been marked by heart-wrenching losses in the finals, especially to their city rivals Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016.

Coming into this season, Los Colchoneros seemed formidable, especially after a resounding 7-0 win over Rayo Vallecano. However, a surprising 3-0 loss to Valencia has brought forth questions about their Champions League ambitions.

The Lineups: Strengths and Concerns

For Lazio, Maurizio Sarri could be eyeing changes in his starting lineup. There’s a possibility of Matteo Guendouzi being introduced into the central midfield. Spearheading their attack will be the captain Ciro Immobile, flanked by Mattia Zaccagni and Felipe Anderson.

Atletico, on the other hand, are grappling with injuries. Thomas Lemar’s Achilles tendon injury is a significant blow, and with Koke and Rodrigo De Paul also sidelined, there’s a gap to fill in midfield. Despite these setbacks, the pairing of Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann up front will be a substantial threat.

Predictions Based on Current Form and Stats

1. Both Teams to Score (BTTS)

Diving deep into the statistics, there are some compelling reasons to think that both teams will find the net. Lazio, while struggling at the start of the Serie A season, have demonstrated they can be a threat up front. Their recent win against Serie A champions Napoli is a testament to their attacking prowess. On the other hand, despite their consistent presence in the Champions League, Atletico Madrid have conceded in each of their last four away games in the competition. Furthermore, Lazio’s current defensive form indicates vulnerabilities, having conceded almost two goals per game in their Serie A campaign so far. Given these defensive lapses from both sides, but also considering their individual attacking qualities, BTTS seems a plausible outcome.

2. Correct Score: 2-1 in favour of Atletico Madrid

Delving into the performances of both teams, Atletico Madrid have displayed a more consistent attacking flair, netting 10 goals in their last four LaLiga matches. Lazio, although having moments of brilliance like their win against Napoli, have been inconsistent. They’ve secured just one win from their first four games in Serie A. However, the passionate home crowd at Stadio Olimpico might galvanise Lazio into netting at least once. Taking into account Atletico’s slightly superior form and the potential rallying effect of Lazio’s home ground, a 2-1 victory for the visitors appears a justified prediction.

3. Goalscorer: Álvaro Morata

Álvaro Morata has been in a decent form for Atletico Madrid in LaLiga. With three goals already under his belt this season, he leads the scoring chart for his team. Morata’s knack for being in the right place at the right time and his experience in the Champions League makes him a prime candidate to score. Lazio’s recent defensive vulnerabilities provide Morata with a prime opportunity to add to his tally. Given his current form and Lazio’s defensive woes, it would not be surprising to see Morata’s name on the scoresheet.
