SS Lazio will face Lokomotiv Moscow on Thursday: Group E - UEFA Europa League

The UEFA Europa League group stages continue this week as Lokomotiv Moscow prepare to host Lazio at the RZD Arena in Group E on Thursday.

Lokomotiv Moscow are winless in their Europa League campaign so far. After drawing 1-1 against Olympique Marseille in their first game, the Russian outfit lost back-to-back games against Lazio and Galatasaray. They then picked up another 1-1 draw against Galatasaray last time out.

Lokomotiv Moscow sit at the bottom of the table with two points from four games. A win on Thursday will see the Russians draw level with their visitors in the group.

Lazio opened their European campaign with a 1-0 away loss to Galatasaray. However, they picked up their first win in their second game, beating Lokomotiv Moscow 2-0. The Italian outfit then played out back-to-back draws in their next two games.

Lazio sit second in Group E with five points. They will be in a good position to advance from the group should they win on Thursday.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Lazio Prediction

Lokomotiv Moscow have a very slim chance of advancing to the knockout stages of the Europa League. However, they need a win on Thursday to ensure that hope is not extinguished.

A win on Thursday would put Lazio in a very good position to advance from the group, while a loss or a draw could put their hopes in danger. Le Aquile's away form has been particularly poor as they have won just one of nine games on the road this campaign. The points should be shared on Thursday.

Prediction: Lokomotiv Moscow 1-1 Lazio
