Match Preview

Two famous clubs with plenty of European experience clash in the Round of 32, in what will surprisingly be their first-ever meeting in European competition.
Lazio, the third most active club in Europa League (EL) history, qualified in second from Group H – their sixth straight progression from the group stage – despite losing their last two group games and conceding at least once in each of their matches. Indeed, no team that qualified conceded more goals than the 11 Lazio let in.
In 16 home competitive games this season (W9, D3, L4), Lazio are yet to concede a goal in the first 15 minutes of play, and have only been behind at half-time in three. Furthermore, Lazio are on a run of nine EL games without losing the first half.
Sevilla, three time EL winners, qualified top of Group J but did lose two of their three away games. In fact, Sevilla are in poor form generally on the road, winning just two competitive away games in their last 14 (D5, L7).
Whilst their 18 goals scored was the most by any team in the EL group stage, they only managed four away goals. Indeed, Sevilla’s last three away games in La Liga (LL) have seen them fail to trouble the scoreboard.
Players to watchCiro Immobile (LAZ) is expected to be fit and will hope to add to his ten competitive home goals this season. Wissam Ben Yedder (SEV) has 19 goals in all competitions this season, including six in this tournament.
Stat attack: Twelve of Lazio’s 16 home competitive games this season saw both teams score, as have their last seven EL home games.
Lazio have won just three of nine home European games against Spanish opposition.
Nine of Sevilla’s last 12 competitive away games produced under 2.5 goals.
Fifty percent of Sevilla’s away LL games this season have been 0-0 at half-time.
