BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
Lazio welcomes Fiorentina on Saturday night with the second-place side looking to strengthen their Champions League position.
Currently the second-highest scorers in the league, Lazio are flying in second place. They are just four points behind Juventus, now on level games though after Wednesday nights defeat.
Their loss to Atalanta was their first defeat since 25th September, a run of 21 unbeaten. This was an important game as Atalanta are two places behind. However, this also shows just how good Lazio have been this season and that it took the league’s top scorer to stop their run.
At home, I Biancocelesti have been excellent. They are currently unbeaten and have drawn just three. It’s going to take some performance from 13th placed Fiorentina to stop Lazio bouncing back.
The side from Florence goes into this one knowing any sort of result could be huge for the outcome of their season. Fiorentina are currently 13th in the Seria A, just six points ahead of relegation.
They have played one game since the restart which was a 1-1 draw with bottom of the table Brescia. Fiorentina haven’t had the greatest of seasons and this is down to the sporadic form.
Fiorentina are going away to Lazio and this will make it even harder for them. They have managed just three wins on the road this season, none of which have come against sides in the top five!
Lazio are still going to be missing Senad Lulic, Luiz Felipe, Adam Marusic and Bobby Adekanye also due to various injuries. However, Kishna is set to be back from suspension.
Christian Kouame is the only injury for Fiorentina, with Chiesa and Caceres both back from suspension.
