Four players have previously played for both soon-to-be-opponents Lazio and Porto in their careers.
As noted by Lazio fan Krudo on Twitter yesterday, Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson is the most recent of the four players to have featured for both clubs, having spent last season on loan with the Portuguese side, although he only managed a handful of appearances for the side.
The upcoming Europa League Round of 16 playoffs will be especially felt by Conceicao, who has been the head coach of Porto since 2017.
The former winger spent three years with Lazio from 1998 to 2000, as well as 2003 to 2004, where he made 103 appearances across all competitions. In that time, he scored 11 goals, provided seven assists and helped the side win the Serie A title, two Coppa Italia, a UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and a UEFA Super Cup.
