While the hosts are back among Europe’s elite for the first time since 2021, Atletico are mainstays in the continent’s top club competition – but they were eliminated in the group stage last season.

Following their consistency at the end of last season, Lazio slipped past several other contenders to finish distant runners-up to Italian champions Napoli, securing a return to Champions League football after dipping their toes in both the Europa League and third-tier Conference League.

Heading into a much-anticipated Group E campaign, in which Celtic, Feyenoord and Atletico Madrid will be their rivals for a top-two finish, Maurizio Sarri’s side sit on just three points from four Serie A matches and have conceded at a rate approaching two goals per game.

Two weeks after summer signing Daichi Kamada scored a deserved winner against Sarri’s old club Napoli, a trip to Turin at the weekend ended in a 3-1 defeat for Lazio, as Juventus stormed into a two-goal lead before the half-hour mark and Luis Alberto’s clinical second-half strike proved only a minor consolation.

Lazio’s notorious fans will welcome a familiar figure back to Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday night, as former Scudetto-winning midfielder Diego Simeone will lead out Atletico Madrid – the club he has since become synonymous with.

While these teams have not met for 11 years, Simeone will still remember those encounters well, as in his first European tie the Argentinian guided Atletico to victory over the club he once won the Serie A-Coppa Italia double with as a player.

At the end of that season, Atletico lifted the Europa League trophy, but they have yet to lift the big one despite several bold attempts – most notably final losses to city rivals Real Madrid in both 2014 and 2016.

Just before the international break, Simeone’s side had thrashed Rayo Vallecano 7-0 – Atletico’s biggest ever away win in La Liga – and then seen their subsequent game against Sevilla postponed.

However, resuming with s surprise 3-0 defeat to Valencia on Saturday may cause doubts ahead of their Champions League return.

Lazio Team News

Sarri could introduce summer signing Matteo Guendouzi in central midfield, with the former Marseille man pushing for his first start since joining on a season-long loan.

Up front, Ciro Immobile captains the hosts from the centre of an attacking triumvirate, which should also feature Italy teammate Mattia Zaccagni and Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson.

Atletico Madrid Team News

After Atletico’s La Liga defeat to Valencia last time out, it emerged that Thomas Lemar could be ruled out for several months after suffering a serious Achilles tendon injury.

Midfield duo Koke and Rodrigo De Paul are also unavailable to Simeone, so Pablo Barrios may continue as the holding midfielder.
