There is 1 period that stands out in the last 18 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 6 of their 15 goals between minutes (46′-60 ‘).

Lazio live, most likely, its worst moment since the start of this season, since it does not win by six games and accumulated three consecutive defeats before beating Verona in the last day of the Italian league, which now occupies the fourth position. On the occasion, he had a great performance, especially in the offensive sector, having finished six times more than the opponent, then conquering Verona without difficulty inside the home, with a highlight for Immobile, who scored twice. However, in the first leg against Steaua Bucharest, in the home of the Romanians, the team suffered a defeat by the minimum score, which can easily revert in their domains, mainly if the attack presents the power that has been showing throughout the season. The 3-5-1-1 or 3-5-2 must be the tactical scheme adopted for this duel, with highlight for Luis Alberto in the offensive sector.

FCSB is going through a great phase at the beginning of the year, taking into account that it has been unbeaten for six games, having won four of them, and suffered only two defeats in the eight matches played in 2018, considering all the competitions that it disputes and also the friendly ones.
