Lazio will host Norwegian side Rosenberg on Thursday with the Italians looking to continue their perfect home record in all competitions. Lazio have played six home games and won all six. This is a Lazio team that have put together a solid squad with both youth and experience. Winger and star man Felipe Anderson will lead the attack with Matri and Dordevic. Matri has two goals in three game in the league and with Klose still starting up front the on loan Milan striker will feel like it's only a matter if time before he gets to lead the line as Klose is almost 40. Lazio have a quality side with a good mix of youth and experience.
Rosenberg come into this game top of the Norwegian league by nine points but this game is a step up on their domestic league. Soderland and Mikkelson will look to lead the line agains Lazio with both having scored double figures this season. Soderlund has 22 goals this season and Rosenborg will look to the experienced striker to keep their hopes alive in this Europa League group. Rosenberg played well in the opening round of fixtures and drew 2-2 in France with Saint Etienne in the first game of the group stages.
This one is an interesting match up but really it's hard to look past Lazio especially as they are at home where they have been perfect this season. Going to take Lazio to win here to nil as I dont see Rosenberg netting a goal at the stadio Olympico. I think Lazio will win here and hold their opponents scoreless as they have done in four of their six home games this year.
