Weakened Lazio faced Rennes


It looks like Lazio did not prioritise the Europa League this week.  Only four of their starters against Rennes have started more than half their six Seri A games this season, three have yet to start a league game and one, Quissanga has started only once.

Lazio are a point behind rivals Roma in the league and two points off a Champions League spot.

They visit Glasgow in three weeks then face Fiorentina in Florence, who currently have two points less than them, three days later.  The game at Celtic Park might be too heavy a load for Lazio to risk the full first team.

The return leg comes between a visit to Milan, currently 16th (!), and a home game against Lecce, who are one place below Milan.

  1. Paul67,


    Probably fair to say that most of us on here are also currentl prioritising the league over the Europa. However, we’re doing a prett good job in both, what with being top of 2 leagues!

  2. What are chances of picking up ticket outside ground tomorrow ?



    We very rarely get away tickets but got two for game but gave them to the pups.



    They are struggling to get a bus from EK so muggings here might have to take them.




  3. A Saturday article. N1.



    I expect Lazios best 11 to be playing at Celtic Park – the players themselves will want to experience it.



    Anyway thats a long way aff. Livi will be a tough nut to crack the morra, their pitch is not hallowed turf, as ever, the teamsheet will be eagerly anticipated.

    BADA BING,Do you know who at Sportscene ,is responsible for having all these ex Sevco Players on there football channels.

  7. Just checked our fixtures to find that we not only have to play Livingstone but also Ross County before we play not the Forza Lazio many of us expect but a weakened version. Which also means La Bella Lena needs a hasty rewrite; “Two games at a time” (Sweet Jesus)

  8. Just turned on NBC Sports to watch Liverpool v Leicester. Liverpool dominating. Unfortunately I just heard the co-commentator speaking, it’s Andy Walker ….

    Lazio v Rennes?



    Attendance was 13,702. /@500 of those were supporting Rennes.Rennes were the better team in the first half..Lazio fielded 2 subs at the start of the second half-Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto.Those 2 were way too good for Rennes.Cue Lazio scoring twice and settling for a 2-1 win

    Sort of?


    SoT will be off again if you don`t qualify that remark !





    Give us an appropriate tune to welcome you back.

    I am worried about tomorrow, Livingston away, after the high of Thursday night, facing a team of hammer throwers on a bumpy dead zone plastic pitch,



    This is an opportunity for Neil to really earn his wages, he has to field a fully motivated 11 hell bent on victory, anything less and it will be another big party in Sevconia,



    A similar performance to Thursday nights should get us the points, but what are the chances of that I wonder.

    the Irish History podcast is very good -( I get it on spotify) Finnsomebodyorudder. I listened to one about whether the famine constituted genocide – wouldn’t use such mild language myself!

  14. Re Benkovic, I am really surprised he isn’t starting for Leicester. Jonny Evans is an average defender, culpable for the Liverpool goal today

    Interesting response from abc sport to a red card



    ‘Curtis Main and his team-mates look rather perplexed as the red card is brandished his way. It was a bit of a reckless lunge from the big striker. Watch out for it on Sportscene tomorrow evening.’
