Lazio will be looking to build on their European adventure as they take on AZ Alkmaar at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday evening in the Europa Conference League round of 16.
The Biancocelesti will try to carry the momentum of their impressive 1-0 win against Napoli in Serie A into this match against the Dutch opposition which is unusually being played on a Tuesday.
This is to avoid a clash with AS Roma’s Europa League first leg against Real Sociedad on Thursday. The nature of the competition’s rules means that both Roman sides must be at home in the first leg of these ties as they came through the play-offs.
AZ Alkmaar are enjoying a good season as they sit third in the Eredivisie, just five points behind Feyenoord who are top.
