The last five Lazio vs Feyenoord H2H editions have largely favoured the Dutch side, but with Lazio having home advantage for this UEFA Champions League (UCL) clash, they have vengeance in mind as they look to progress further in Europe's premier club competition.
Lazio vs Feyenoord H2H Record
Though Serie A is universally considered a far more competitive league than the Eredivisie, Feyenoord boast a surprisingly dominant record against the Italian outfit:
- Lazio wins: 1
- Draws: 1
- Feyenoord: 3
The first time they met was way back in the 1999/2000 Champions League group stage, when Feyenoord managed to defeat Lazio on their own ground.
Lazio vs Feyenoord H2H – the last five
Feyenoord 3-1 Lazio (25 October 2023)
The Eredivisie heavyweights came out firing on all cylinders in their most recent game against Lazio. They produced an inspired display at the De Kuip and soared under the fiery atmosphere created by their home fans. Santiago Gomez scored a brace and Ramiz Zerrouki put Feyenoord in a 3-0 lead, before a late penalty from Pedro Gonzalez ended up a mere consolation for the Italian side. The win put Feyenoord top of Group E and dropped Lazio to third place, creating a three-point difference between the two sides.
Feyenoord 1-0 Lazio (3 November 2022)
Feyenoord caused major heartbreak for the Italian club in the final match of their Group F match in the UEFA Europa League group stages last season. With sturdy defending after going ahead, Santiago Gimenez’s 64th minute strike proved to be the difference and gave the Dutch side the win. This was a huge victory for them, as it helped them top Group F and knock Lazio out of the Europa League as they finished third in the group due to inferior goal difference to Feyenoord and FC Midtjylland.
Lazio 4-2 Feyenoord (9 September 2022)
Maurizio Sarri’s side was able to flex their goal-scoring power in an action-packed 2022/23 Europa League opener against Feyenoord last season. Matias Vecino’s brace, as well as goals from Luis Alberto and Felipe Anderson, put Lazio into a 4-0 lead within 65 minutes. Santiago Gimenez’s late brace was but a consolation, and Lazio took pole position in their group, but the tables would turn soon after.
Feyenoord 0-0 Lazio (8 March 2000)
Feyenoord hosted Lazio in the Champions League for the first time in 2000, in what ended up being an entertaining 0-0 draw. Lazio, who finished as runners up in the 1998/99 Serie A title race, threw in the kitchen sink but were unable to score. The draw meant that Feyenoord were above Lazio in Group D of the second group stage with two games remaining, but the Italian heavyweights ultimately ended up topping the group by winning their final two games.
Lazio 1-2 Feyenoord (29 February 2000)
Lazio were overwhelming favourites to get a big win over Feyenoord on a memorable leap-day fixture at the Stadio Olimpico. They even took the lead through Juan Sebastian Veron in the 37th minute, and seemed set to get a precious win. However, a brilliant late brace from striker Jon Dahl Tomasson helped Feyenoord escape with all three points and jump over Lazio in the group table.
Luis Alberto is arguably Lazio’s biggest creative threat and caused havoc against Feyenoord in their last visit to the Stadio Olimpico. With a strike in only the fourth minute of play, the proactive midfielder opened the scoring in his side’s 4-2 win over the Dutch outfit.
He also set up the fourth goal with a really smart pass and ran riot over, creating three major chances in the game too. Alberto will look to light up the crowd with his slick playing style and cause chaos in the opposition backline with his clever defence-splitting passes.
Feyenoord midfielder Calvin Stengs is also someone we feel can make things happen for Feyenoord in Santiago Gimenez’s absence. But Lazio are a different beast at home and should use their crowd’s energy to produce a fiery display. We’ll go for a 3-1 Lazio win.
That prediction is backed further by the fact that there have been over three goals scored in two of the last three matches played between Lazio and Feyenoord.
