Fiorentina vs Lazio: Prediction
Fiorentina’s three-game winning streak came to an end as Brescia held them to a goalless draw at Mario Rigamonti stadium, but their unbeaten run remains intact and extended to six games. La Viola are 9th in the Serie A standings with the win-draw-lose record of 3-3-2, levelled on points with Parma and their next opponent.
Jacob Rasmussen will be evaluated before the game. There are no suspensions in the team.
Lazio come into this game on the back of a 1-2 loss away to Celtic in the Europa League. The Biancocelesti were involved in two highly entertaining stalemates prior to that (2-2 vs Bologna on the road and 3-3 vs Atalanta at home). Lazio are sitting at 7th position with the same record as Viola – the goal difference is the only thing that separates two sides.
Backup goalie Silvio Proto is reportedly out, others are fully fit.
Florence-based club have 2-1-1 record at Artemio Franchi stadium this season. They’ve defeated Sampdoria (2-1) and Udinese (1-0) in their latest Serie A fixtures at this venue. La Viola have an average of 1.50 goals scored per game at home, whilst conceding 1.25 per match.
The Biancocelesti, 1-1-2 on their travels, have Fiorentina numbers on the road. Team from the capital are on a cold streak away from home with a 5-game winless streak across competitions. Only one team managed to shut them down this season, though – Inter, on Matchday 5.
Honestly, this game looks and feels like a textbook draw. Not going for a goalless stalemate with Ribery and Chiesa on one side, and Serie A leading goalscorer Ciro Immobile on the other, though.
Two very good sides will lock horns on Sunday, and we might see 1-1 or even 2-2 scoreline here.
