Porto and Lazio face off on Thursday in the second leg of their Group of 16 Europa League showdown at Stadio Olimpico. 

When these two teams faced off last Thursday it was Porto that was able to win 2-1. Lazio actually opened up the scoring in 23rd minute with a goal. Toni Martinez answered back scoring two goals in the 37th minute and 49th minute for Lazio. Lazio had 21 shots total while Lazio only had seven total. Porto looks to be in good shape being up 2-1, but they did give up a road goal, and that could come back to haunt them. 

FC Porto is having another big season currently sitting in 1st place of the Primeira Liga. In the last game against Moreirense, FC Porto scored a goal in the first half, and that was enough as the defense locked down and came away with the victory. Porto has scored 58 goals total while their defense has given up 16 goals. Luis Diaz has been the top player for FC Porto scoring 14 goals and adding four assists. Mehdi Taremi has also had a big season scoring 12 goals and adding eight assists. 

On the other side of this matchup is Lazio who have some work to do if they want to advance to the next round. In the last game against Udinese, Lazio didn’t look all that great, as they played to a 1-1 draw. Lazio gave up a goal in the 5th minute, and although they did answer back with a goal, they couldn’t find a second goal to come away with the victory. Lazio has scored 53 goals in Serie A but their defense has also given up 40 goals. The best player this season has been Ciro Immobile who has scored 19 goals total and added two assists. 

FC Porto is the better team, and even though they are up, they are going to be able to attack a Lazio defense that has been an issue all season. Look for FC Porto to score at least two goals, and that will be enough to come away with the victory.
