Vitesse vs Lazio Europa League Match Preview

Vitesse vs Lazio UEFA Europa League Match Preview: Biancocelesti look to build on their fine form and cause an upset in Arnhem on Thursday.

After a thrashing home win over Milan in front of the home fans on Sunday, which will surely be a great confidence booster ahead of the clash at Vitesse, they’ll now look to extend their eight-match unbeaten streak with a win.

Biancocelesti have been in great shape through their pre-season and managed to build on it early in Serie A, with seven wins and one draw (0-0 against SPAL on Serie A Matchday 1) on the record.

Vitesse come into the match on the back of a convincing display against Excelsior and a convincing win at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion (0-3) with three goals from the front line (Castaignos, Matavz, and Linssen). However, they’ve been struggling for consistency and we’ve seen them suffer a 1-2 loss to AZ in their last home outing, which was their second loss in last five games across competitions.
