[Europa Conference League] Lazio Vs Cluj Preview

Cluj is scheduled to play Lazio in the Olimpico in the first leg of the play-off Europa Conference League. The Biancoceleste was eliminated from the Europa League, they will try to get as far as they can in this competition. 

Lazio must rise after the defeat in the direct clash with Atalanta. The occasion is served by the Conference League, a competition in which the Biancoceleste take part as "relegated" from the Europa League (third behind Feyenoord and Midtjylland) and in the past were snubbed by the management in words.

The opponent is Dan Petrescu's Cluj. Maurizio Sarri's men then cannot fail the first match. The lack of attention in the Europa League was costly, other mistakes could lead to the continental adventure ending early.  As a result, we need the best version of Lazio, the one seen against Milan in Serie A.

The last time the two teams met was on matchday 5 of the Europa League on November 28, 2019. Lazio had defeated CFR Cluj 1-0 at the time.

Lazio (4-3-3): Maximiano; Lazzari, Casale, Patric, Hysaj; Vecino, Marcos Antonio, Luis Alberto; Pedro, Immobile, Zaccagni

Prediction: Lazio - Cluj = 1 - 0
