Europa League match : Lazio – Tottenham Preview,Live streams,Lineups
Stadio Olimpico — Roma
Referee: Fernando Teixeira
Certainly the most attractive meeting of the fifth round of group stage of the Europa League, in which will meet the two leading teams in the group J,the Italian Lazio and the English Tottenham Spurs.
Without too much effort Lazio and Tottenham came to the first two positions in group.However,Italians are currently in a better position, since they have eight points, two more than the Spurs, who have two more than the third Maribor, and four more than the last Panathinaikos.
The first match between these two teams in London,has finished with a draw 0-0.
Teams morale of Lazio is high level, after their last two appearances in Serie A, where they first in the city derby match managed to overcome AS Roma 3:2 to and the last weekend as guests in Torino they where they played against the current Italian champions Juventus remained undefeated.The match ended with 0-0.
Coach of Lazio Petkovic announced that he will sent the strongest team on the pitch,which should look like this :
Lazio : Marchetti;Konko, Ciani, Biava, Radu,Cana, Ledesma;Gonzalez, Hernanes, Ederson;Zarate
As for the team of Tottenham, they have suffered in the last five matches four defeats, while only in the Europa League they manage to celebrate at home against Maribor.
For the placement in the next round probably to them would be enough to beat the Greek representative at home in the last round, or that Maribor celebrates tonight in Greece.
Still,the coach Villas-Boas said he would not give up in advance in Rome, because the first place in group would bring them something easier opponents later.
That’s why he said that in contrast to the previous four matches in this round of the Europa League he will also send the strongest team on pitch, in which only the first striker Defoe, will be replaced by Adebayor.
Tottenham probable lineup : Lloris;Walker, Caulker, Dawson, Vertonghen;Lennon, Huddlestone, Sandro, Bale;Dempsey;Adebayor
