Lazio and Atletico Madrid champions league game

Football fans are eagerly waiting for the Champions League group stages to kick off. Group E is one of the most unpredictable groups and fans are excited for the upcoming match between Lazio and Atletico Madrid on September 19th. 


The match will be held at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome where Lazio will be hosting Atletico Madrid. 

As things stand, Lazio is presently in 15th place in Serie A with only 3 points, while Atletico Madrid is in the 7th position in La Liga with 7 points. 

Lazio comes into this match with a recent defeat in Serie A against Juventus. Although Lazio did manage to score a goal, they conceded 3 goals by the end of the game. 

Unfortunately, Lazio has not had a great start to this season, losing 3 out of their 4 competitive fixtures. Their losses came from Lecce and Genoa, but they did manage to secure a win against Napoli. 

Lazio's last Champions League match was back in 2021 when they failed to win any of their last 4 matches in the competition. Interestingly, in their last 8 most recent Champions League matches, both teams have managed to score.

On the other hand, Atletico Madrid is looking to make a strong comeback after their recent 3-0 defeat against Valencia in La Liga. 


They are yet to play a Champions League game this season, but they started their La Liga season with a win against Granada and a draw against Real Betis. 


Atletico Madrid's most impressive performance this season was their 7-0 win against Rayo Vallecano in La Liga.

However, trends show that Atletico Madrid has only won 1 of their last 6 matches in the Champions League and has lost their last 4 away games. Despite their poor record in the competition, they have the most recent experience in the Champions League. 

As for the team news, Lazio has no major injury concerns but may make some changes to their starting XI following their defeat at Juventus. Maurizio Sarri could bring in Matteo Guendouzi for the central midfield.

 Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid will be travelling without injured midfield duo Koke and Rodrigo De Paul, and Thomas Lemar may be out for some time due to an injury.


In conclusion, both teams are expected to put up a good fight, but Atletico Madrid is most likely to take the lead in this match. With the forward pairing of Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann, Atletico Madrid will be a tough team to break down. 

Every point counts in the Champions League group stages, and it will be a joy to watch these two teams lock horns.
