Lazio have a very poor season in Serie A. They are far away from the top and it seems they will not play in UEFA competitions next season. Even more, they are out of Coppa Italia too. The club ambitions are not high and the President Lotito decided to sell his key player Hernanes to Inter. So, the weak Lazio now become even weaker. For this match the coach Edu Reja will rest most of his key players, including the striker Miroslav Klose. I expect Lazio to play with many youngsters.
Lazio are in poor form at the moment. They have one draw and one defeat on the last two matches. Here are the results:
16.02.2014. Catania – Lazio 3:1 09.02.2014. Lazio – AS Roma 0:0
Ludogorets are Bulgarian team with big ambitions. The club owner is investing a lot of money and have many international players. The Brazilians Choco, Junior, Juninho, Marcelinho are part of the team, as well as some other players (Barthe, Fabio Espinho, Vitinha and Dani Abalo).
At this point I will mention that Ludogorets have three wins on the three away games in Europe during the group stage. Here are the results:
12.12.2013. Dinamo Zagreb – Ludogorets 1:2 24.10.2013. Ch. Odessa – Ludogorets 0:1 19.09.2013. PSV – Ludogorets 0:2
I believe Ludogorets are able to make a surprise at Olympico.
