Group K leaders Lazio welcome bottom side Vitesse to the Stadio Olimpico, Italy, for the fifth match day of the Uefa Europa League on Thursday. The hosts will be looking to complete six points over their Dutch rivals after beating them 3-2 on opening day.
They come into this match on the back of a Serie A meeting with Roma on Saturday and a 1-0 win over Nice in the fourth round. They sit six points clear at the top with 12 points. Marco Parolo, Allessandro Murgia and Ciro Immobile, scorers from the first meeting, are again likely to feature prominently in this return leg.

Vitesse, bottom with just a single point, are still in the running mathematically, but logically their chances are over. They will thus look to enjoy the game and bow out honourably. Tim Matavz and Bryan Linssen were the scorers for Henk Fraser’s side in the last meeting and will again look to strike their luck in this one.
