Legia Warszawa are already out of contention for a place in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 but can cause a substantial shake-up in Group J if they can take points off their matchday five visitors SS Lazio. Another win for Lazio would guarantee them one of the two top spots in the section.
In the previous meeting between these two teams the debutant Keita Baldé set up Hernanes for the only goal of the game as Lazio beat Legia 1-0 in Rome on matchday one.
Legia has played 13 games against Italian teams and has 2 wins, 5 draws and 6 loses (2W, 3D, 1L in Warsaw, 0W, 2D, 5L in Italy). They have not lost in their last four home games against Italian sides, earning two wins followed by two draws. Lazio's only previous encounters with a Polish side came in 2002/03; they drew 3-3 at home and then won 2-1 away against Wisła Kraków in the UEFA Cup fourth round.
Legia are the only side who have yet to score a goal or pick up a point in this season's group stage. Only one club has ever previously lost all six group games – the Republic of Ireland's Shamrock Rovers FC in 2011/12. Lazio have drawn both of their Group J away games to date.
This is Lazio's fifth group stage campaign; they missed the cut in their first two, in 2004/05 and 2009/10, but reached the 2011/12 round of 32 and last season's quarter-finals.
Lazio had the joint highest total of shots off target in the first four matchdays: 32.
Sergio Floccari's first goal in Lazio's 2-1 win against Apollon Limassol FC on matchday four was the club's 150th in 96 UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League games. The next one they concede will be the 100th in the two competitions.
