Let's focus on one of our three opponents in Group H in the 2018-2019 Europa League: Società Sportiva Lazio.

Fifth in Serie A this season, Lazio will be a formidable opponent in Group H of the UEFA Europa League. After 11 matchdays in Serie A, the Romans are fifth with 7 wins and 4 defeats.

Lazio is coached by Simone Inzaghi and was eliminated from the Europa League last season by RB Salzburg in the quarter-finals.

Throughout its history, OM have been to Rome twice to face Lazio and have never won (a draw and a defeat).
