Lazio have crashed out of the Europa League following their loss to Feyenoord, relegating them to the Europa Conference League.
The Biancocelesti’s 1-0 loss to the Eredivisie side earlier this weeks leaves them third in Group F, meaning they’ll now drop down into the Conference League to fight for a spot in the Round of 16. Teams ranked second in their groups will be drawn against a relegated Europa League side, giving Lazio a number of possible opponents in their play-off clash.
Below are the possible teams Lazio could draw for their Europa Conference League play-offs (via LazioNews24):
- RSC Anderlecht
- Lech Poznan
- FK Partizan
- FC Dnipro
- KAA Gent
- CRF Cluj
- FC Basel
A little pressure is on Maurizio Sarri and his Lazio squad in the Conference League after intercity rivals Roma lifted the trophy last season. Sporting director Igli Tare suggested that the competition was ‘for losers’ when speaking at Luiss University last month, a quote that no doubt haunts him now.
