Cremonese vs Lazio
Italian Serie A
Date: 18 September 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giovanni Zini (Cremona).
Cremonese opened the season with four successive defeats, showing huge problems in an attempt to adapt to the elite class football from the get-go.
The team from Cremona returned to Italian top flight after 26 years of absence. However, they did show signs of improvements in the last two games, playing back-to-back draws to Sassuolo and Atalanta in the process.
Head coach Massimiliano Alvini can be especially thrilled with the display his men showed last weekend in Bergamo.
Cremonese were brave enough not to give up despite conceding an opening goal and they deservedly secured a point from Gewiss Stadium.
Alvini’s troops will now face another very challenging task on Sunday afternoon when they play host to Lazio in Gameweek No 7.
Lazio, on the other side, come into this match off the back of one of the toughest defeats in the last several years.
I Biancocelesti conceded five goals in a demolishing UEFA Europa League loss to Midtjylland on Thursday night in Denmark.
Maurizio Sarri generally has problems with the lack of meticulousness in his team’s back line since Lazio kept just one clean sheet in the last six outings across competitions.
Cremonese do not have a strong firepower on display in the final third but it will be very interesting to see whether they will be able to exploit the obvious holes in Lazio’s back line.
