Our European adventure continues tomorrow against Sparta.

It's safe to say that we've done rather well in Europe so far and with the Serie A pretty much having been played out, our focus should really be on the EL.

In contrast to Galatasary, where the odds were roughly even, with Sparta we should be considered the favorites. And it remains to be seen if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

The squad that we have available appears more than capable to get the job done, at least on paper. As we all know, the defense is our Achilles heel and it could prove so in this game once more.

We'll know tomorrow.

Forza Lazio!

I suppose we are the favourites, but also Sparta has been unbeaten in the EL this season. If we can play on our standard European level, however, we should get a draw from the away game. But the attitude has to be right, Sparta will be ultra-motivated for this match...

Official lineup: Marchetti; Konko, Bisevac, Hoedt, Radu; Milinkovic, Biglia, Parolo; Candreva, Matri, Keita

Nice to see Keita back in there. Hopefully he can deliver.

We have scored a very important away goal but with this defence we will probably need another one or two if we want to avoid a defeat.

I still don't understand Pioli's infatuation with SMS.

1-1 is a decent result but we did hit the bar in the second half. Basta came on at HT then came off 20 minutes later, probably injured again, that's bad news.

Pretty fine result. Sure, a win could have been better it's important to at least have gotten an away goal.

As with Galatasary, all we need is 0-0 at home and we're through. :)
