Returning to the Champions League groups after a break of more than a decade, Lazio meets Borussia Dortmund in the first game of Group F.
The match will take place at the “Olimpico” Stadium in Rome.
He did not play in the Champions League groups from the 2007/2008 edition, when he eliminated Dinamo in the Playoffs.
He has a very weak start to the championship, having only 4 points taken in 4 games, 1 victory, 1 draw and 2 defeats.
It comes after a 3-0 defeat, away to Sampdoria, a match at the end of which Simone Inzaghi even accepted the defeat, claiming that he has to fix several things for the team.
Great defensive problems for Simone Inzaghi, who could not count on Lazzari, Luis Felipe, Proto, Sergiu Radu, Quissanga and Lulic, all injured.
It was eliminated in the previous edition of the Champions League, in the eighth, by PSG, after making a weak return to Paris.
In the championship, he occupies the 3rd position, being equal in points with Bayern Munich and only 1 point behind the leader RB Leipzig.
It comes after an away success, with Hoffenheim, score 1: 0, a game he could have won much more easily, Reus scoring the only goal of the game.
Emre Can is suspended for this match, while Akanji, Hazard, Schmelzer, Schulz and Zagadou are injured, which makes the guests have big problems in the defensive compartment.
▪️The two teams met in the 94/95 edition of the Uefa Cup, Dortmund managing to move on, after losing in Rome with the score of 1: 0, but winning at home with 2: 0.
⚽Lazio vs Dortmund probable team:

Football Prediction of the DayLazio vs Dortmund
When you lose in the championship with Sampdoria, with the score of 3: 0, without having any player eliminated, it is clear that things are not very well arranged for the team and also that the team’s game suffers and the immediate prospects are not very good. Another problem of the lazy is the fact that they are not used to playing every 3 days, last year they made fun of themselves in the Europa League, where together with Rennes they were the beater in a group from which they have more Celtic and CFR Cluj were part. Therefore, I consider that Dortmund is the favorite to prevail in this match and that they will manage not to lose, Dortmund coming after 2 victories in the championship, 4: 0 with Freiburg and 1: 0 with Hoffenheim.
