Match status: 2020/21 Champions League - Group Stage
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Even though the Serie A campaign is still in its early stages, Lazio are already under the microscope for their embarrassing start. Pressure is mounting on Simone Inzaghi to steady the wavering ship to avoid getting the sack.

As many fans have quickly lost faith in the Italian gaffer, a smaller section of the crowd is of the belief that the 44-year-old is the right candidate to take the club forward. Will Lazio begin their CL journey with a positive result? Well, we’ll wait to find out.

Lazio vs Borussia Dortmund Team News

It has been a really long while since Lazio last featured in the group stages of the Champions League. We will have to go as far back as the 2007/08 season to see the Biancocelesti appear on the grandest European stage. This comes to show they are novices at this level.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund are more experienced here, having competed in the CL for the past five seasons on the bounce. In fact, Die Borussen were finalists in the 2013/14 edition but couldn’t lay their hands on the trophy as they were narrowly defeated by archrivals Bayern Munich.

Lazio enjoyed a wonderful domestic campaign last term, finishing fourth on the standings, just five points shy of the league summit. However, head coach Simone Inzaghi is struggling to get the best out of his players this time around.

Picking up a measly four points from their opening four games, the Eagles sit 13th on the log. Goal-loving forward Ciro Immobile has failed to hit the ground running so far, hitting the target just once this season. In fact, he received a red card in the one-all draw against Inter Milan last month.

Having received his marching orders in that nerve-cracking fixture, he was missing from Lazio’s previous clash against Sampdoria through injury. Indeed, the Eagles were hammered 3-0 by the Samps. Dortmund will fancy their chances of piling on Lazio’s miseries with an emphatic win in this contest.

Lucien Favre’s men have begun their Bundesliga campaign in brilliant fashion, winning three of their first four games. Last time out, they were made to scrap really hard to see off Hoffenheim, recording a fortuitous 1-0 win on the board.

In Group F of the Champions League with the likes of Club Brugge and Zenit, Dortmund are in the unusual position of being overwhelming favorites to topple the pack. They will be relying heavily on the services of Haaland and Sancho to help them through this group phase.

Injured or Suspended Players

Lazio: Senad Lulic, Silvio Proto, Andreas Pereira, Stefan Radu, Luiz Felipe, Bastos and Manuel Lazzari.

Borussia Dortmund: Dan-Axel Zagadou, Marcel Schmelzer, Thorgan Hazard, Manuel Akanji and Nico Schulz.

Lazio vs Dortmund Predictions

Both teams have their fair share of injury problems to cater for. Having rested many of his key players against Hoffenheim last time out, Favre will have his top guns raring to go here. Haaland should cause Lazio’s leaky defense all sorts of problems.

Earlier in the season, the Eagles shipped in four goals versus Atalanta. We can see Dortmund strolling to success in this fixture, and grabbing a couple of goals in the process.
