Lazio and Dynamo (Kiev) will be fighting against one another in one of the most interesting matches of the 1/8-finals in the Europa League. Earlier today, the former French national and Barcelona football player Eric Abidal determined this meeting, pulling both teams off the Nile rally.
So far, both teams have met only twice in their history, and in both cases the “eagles” are emerging victorious from the clashes. This is happening during the 1999/00 season, when the names of Sinisa Mihajlovic, Roberto Mancini, Paul Nedved, Veron and Alessandro Nesta appear in the Romans’ team. All players left behind in Italian and European football.
Lazio defeated his opponent in the group stage of the Champions League, scoring 2-1 at home and 1-0 as a guest. It is curious to note that the coach of the “eagles” Simone Inzaghi has also participated in the two matches with the Ukrainians. The Italian coach now faces the task of conveying this defeated spirit to his players and defending the honor of Italian football in Europe.
