Having already knocked Borussia Dortmund out of the Europa League, Al Hain-Cole fancies Die Roten Bullen to hold their own against Inzaghi's side

Red Bull Salzburg will be aiming to pull off another shock when they travel to the Stadio Olimpico to take on Lazio in Thursday's Europa League quarter-final.

Marco Rose's men knocked out Borussia Dortmund in the last round, thanks largely to a surprise 2-1 away victory in the first leg.

Latest Odds

Having gone 19 matches without defeat in European competition, they are available at 4/1 (5.00) with bet365 to put themselves in control of this tie with another win here.

However, the Biancocelesti have won three and lost none of their five home matches in this year's Europa League and are 4/5 (1.80) favourites to take an aggregate lead.

Two of the hosts' last three European fixtures in their own back yard have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 11/4 (3.75) on them being held to another stalemate on this occasion.

Team News

Stefan Radu, Senad Lulic, Wallace and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are all fit to return for Simone Inzaghi's team, although Jordan Lukaku remains unavailable.

Hwang Hee-Chan is the only absentee for the visitors, having incurred a suspension for picking up three yellow cards in the competition so far.

Confident Salzburg

Despite their relative lack of pedigree, few teams should be underestimating Die Roten Bullen after they knocked out one of the favourites in Dortmund last time out.

Having lost just once in 43 fixtures in all competitions this season and gone 19 European ties without defeat, they will certainly not be lacking in confidence when they travel to Rome.

Indeed, Lazio's tag as heavy favourites does not sit too comfortably considering they have only won one of their previous five home matches in all competitions.

On top of that, they have been held to draws by Dynamo Kiev and Vitesse in their last three Europa League games in front of their own fans.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 21/20 (2.05) seem more than fair on Salzburg maintaining their strong record and avoiding defeat at the Stadio Olimpico.
