Lazio v Eintracht Frankfurt Match preview and prediction 13th December 2018

Time: 19.55

Lazio entertains Eintracht Frankfurt un the UEFA Europa League both sides keen to bag the maximum points in an encounter that could go either way.

Lazio will be counting on their ever vibrant home support to get the job done and sink the visiting Frankfurt side who will come out guns blazing.

Eintracht Frankfurt is looking to complete a perfect group phase record making it six wins in six games on Thursday evening when they host Lazio on the final Matchday. It has all been settled already in Group H as the Eagles will top it regardless of the outcome of this clash at Olimpico, while Biancocelesti will accompany the German outfit in the knockout phase of the competition in spite of a 2-0 defeat to Cypriot Apollon last time out.

We can definitely expect both managers to mix up their cards here, especially knowing teams have both been struggling domestically in recent weeks.

Simeone Inzaghi charges head into the match in mediocre form and is winless in five games across competitions.

The home side head into the match hoping to bounce back from their 2-2  disappointing home draw in a thriller against Sampdoria.

The home side was on the brink of claiming the spoils when Ciro Immobile conversed the 96th-minute penalty, but Riccardo Saponara responded three minutes later to set the final score 2-2.

The home team will be counting on Italian hitman Ciro Immobile to fire them past the visiting German side who will be counting on their compact team to grab the maximum points against the formidable hosts.
