After three years, Lazio is once again in the Champions League group stage. During their last participation, they even surpassed expectations and won all three of their home games in the group. However, their season isn't starting off very well, judging by the results in the league. Inconsistency is evident after the first four rounds, where they only managed to achieve one victory and suffered three losses. Against this backdrop, their victory of 2-1 against Napoli as guests may have been unexpectedly achieved.
Atletico Madrid failed in the group stage in the previous season. They only achieved one victory before being eliminated. This season started promisingly for them, but over the weekend, they were brought down to earth during their visit to Valencia, losing 0-3. Before that, they had some victories and even secured a 7-0 thrashing of Rayo Vallecano as guests.
Both teams need more consistency. It's difficult to predict the outcome of the match, as either team could win. However, I will choose under 2.5 goals, expecting more defensive dominance.
