Lazio returned to winning ways in Serie A on Monday, winning 4-0 at Fiorentina. Sturm, meanwhile, beat WSG Tirol 2-1 in the Austrian Bundesliga.

The visitors have scored just once in the Europa League this term, which might be their undoing in Rome. Considering the same, a comfortable win for Maurizio Sarri's men seems to be on the cards, and they could keep a clean sheet too.
