[Champions League] Lazio Vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

The first match of Group E in the Champions League will showcase a highly anticipated match between Lazio and Atletico Madrid. Unfortunately, both teams have arrived in a less-than-optimal condition.

For this upcoming match, both teams have experienced unfavorable outcomes in their previous games. Lazio was defeated 1-3 by Juventus, while Atletico Madrid also lost 0-3 to Valencia.

Despite playing four Serie A matches, Lazio has only accumulated three points so far. Nevertheless, they have secured a victory against Napoli, the defending champions. This achievement stands as proof that Maurizio Sarri's team possesses the ability to defeat formidable opponents.

The outcome of Atletico's recent match against Valencia was unexpected as they suffered a 3-0 loss. Diego Simeone, the coach, had to persuade his team that the defeat was a mere coincidence.

The encounter between Lazio and the Spanish club is yet to happen in the Champions League. However, they have crossed paths four times in the past during the UEFA Cup/Europa League. These encounters include the semifinals of 1997/1998 and the round of 32 in 2011/2012.

Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Marusic, Patric, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Kamada, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni

Prediction: Lazio - Atletico Madrid = 1 - 1
