      Betting suggestion:

      This should be a match with both teams studying each other and more focused on defense, so they don't fall behind for the second match. Looking at the results from Sparta Praga at home and Lazio away, we can see that both teams concede a small number of goals. Having said that, we believe in a match with a small number of goals being scored.
