Lazio have drawn Olympique Marseille in their Europa League group this season.
The Biancocelesti and the Ligue 1 side are in Group E, which also contains Galatasaray and Lokomotiv Moscow.
Lazio’s two games against Olympique Marseille this season are scheduled for the following days:
- Stadio Olimpico – 21st October – 6:45 pm local time.
- Stade Vélodrome – 4th November – 9 pm local time.
The two clubs have met six times total in their history, starting with their famous Champions League group game in the 1999/2000 season.
In the return game on 14th March 2000, the Biancocelesti famously thrashed the French side 5-1, with Simone Inzaghi scoring four goals, Alen Boksic scoring one and Jerome Leroy netting a consolation goal for Les Olympiens.
Their next meeting came in the Intertoto Cup semifinals in the 2005/06 season. The first match saw Lazio draw Marseille 1-1 at home, with goals from Paolo Di Canio and Abdoulaye Meite.
The second leg, however, saw Les Olympiens comfortably beat the Biancocelesti 3-0, with Mamadou Niang, Andrés Mendoza and a young Franck Ribery all finding the back of the net.
The most recent time the two clubs have met was in the Europa League group stage in the 2018/19 season.
