As a Laziale there's not much to be excited about these days, so this game comes at the right time.

Exactly how exciting it will turn out remains to be seen of course.

The squad isn't exactly in good shape with all the injuries and the players that are fit aren't in the best place psychologically.

Already one advantage that our opponent has is that their fans give them tremendous support at home, and possibly on the road as well.

So this won't be easy. Then again, I'm sure that our charismatic coach will do what's necessary to motivate his players.

Gonna be like night and day when it comes to the atmosphere...

It's pretty much 50-50 on the field, though. Althought the group stage got little attention amid our Serie A struggles, we actually performed quite well. There's a reason to be a bit optimistic, even.

LLSN has this as the expected lineup:

Marchetti; Konko, Mauricio, Hoedt, Radu; Milinkovic, Biglia, Parolo,; Candreva, Matri, Lulic

Not a lot of surprises. Anderson has been relegated to the bench lately and Morrison is not even with the team, but that's pretty much business as usual.

It could go either way. We do have quality in the squad. The league may be a write-off this season, but we're still in with a shot in Europe.

1-1, a pretty good result. We avoided defeat in an environment that certainly favored Galatasaray and got an important away goal to boot. :)

1-1 is not a bad result at all, even though we had chances to win the game.

Yeah, but so did Galatasaray. I don't think we have much to be unhappy about.

A surprisingly decent result. I didn't think we would come with any points from turkey.

Is Lazio interested in passage to the next stage and specifically for the Europa League?
I sure hope they are!

Away goals are everything in this competition. 0-0 or 1-0 in the next game and we're through.

Yes, a very good result which gives us the upper hand in the tie.

Would be crazy not to take EL seriously now that there's little hope of achieving anything in the league.
