GAL vs LAZ Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Galatasaray vs Lazio Europa League Live Score September 16


GAL vs LAZ Dream11: Galatasaray come into this on the back of an entertaining but frustrating 2-2 defeat away to Trabzonspor at the weekend. Gala had led by two goals inside 33 minutes. Their ten games this season, in all competitions, have seen 35 goals with nine of the ten games finishing up with both teams scoring. Given that they now come up against a Maurizio Sarri-led Lazio side that are overt in their attacking ideas and philosophy. Lazio might suffer with their depth this season but they should be entertaining and both teams to score looks a strong bet for this one.

Kick-Off: 10:15 PM (IST)
Venue: Turk Telekom Stadyumu, Istanbul

DEF: Van Anholt, Felipe, Acerbi, Hysaj
MID: Kutlu, Alberto, Milinkovic-Savic
FOR: Immobile, Diagne, Babel

Likely Winner:

  • It’s been a subdued start to the season for Galatasaray, who weren’t overly convincing in qualifying for the tournament past St. Johnstone and Randers either, drawing a leg against each.
  • Lazio had been free-scoring ahead of their weekend trip to Milan but were beaten by the better team and may ring the changes in order to keep legs fresh for a return to league action on Sunday.
  • These teams met in the knockout stages five years ago, with Lazio winning on home soil after a draw in Istanbul and a repeat result wouldn’t come as a surprise.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of a draw is 3.62.
