Lazio vs Atletico Madrid kick off the action in Group E of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League as they face off at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday, September 19.
Both teams are eager to rebound from recent domestic losses and launch their campaign for European glory on a positive note. Lazio’s hopes were dashed on Saturday with a 3-1 defeat to Juventus in Serie A, following their first season victory. Previously, Maurizio Sarri’s squad managed to secure a 2-1 victory against defending champions Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, breaking their four-game losing streak. Lazio currently occupies the 15th spot in the standings, having accumulated just three points from four matches.
On the other hand, Atletico Madrid experienced their first defeat of the season over the weekend, suffering a 3-0 loss to Valencia in La Liga. Diego Simeone’s side had previously garnered one draw and three wins in their first four matches, including a dominant 7-0 triumph over Rayo Vallecano on August 28. Atletico has amassed seven points from their opening four games, placing them seventh in the La Liga standings, level on points with Cadiz, Getafe, and Real Betis.
