Lazio vs Cagliari
Italy – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 23 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
The Eagles entered into self-destruct mode once the lockdown was lifted. They had an opportunity to challenge Juventus for the league title, but the unexpected run of unimpressive performances really let their fans down.
However, due to their earlier form, a top-four finish is almost guaranteed, and they now could play without any pressure. There’s no catching the Old Lady now. The window is closed.
What Simone Inzaghi’s men could do now is to get out of thus rut they are stuck in, and finish their season on a positive note. They surely will be gunning to participate in the title-race next time around, and it’s important that they find their form back.
It helps that they are taking on the Islanders who have been struggling for a long period to deliver a good game. On top of that, they have enormously suffered in h2h clashes over the years as well.
Likely, expect the wounded Lazio to come back into form, and secure a statement-making win this Thursday.
Lazio vs Cagliari: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Eagles are on a three-match winning run against this foe.
- They have also recorded 14 of the former 16 victories.
- They have scored two or more goals in ten of the previous eleven encounters.
- The hosts are on an eight-game winning run at this stadium.

Lazio vs Cagliari: Prediction
Inzaghi’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Juventus. Despite the loss, the fact that their main striker Ciro Immobile found his scoring touch back would be good news to fans.
Meanwhile, Walter Zenga’s men were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Sassuolo. It was their sixth straight winless fixture, and they also were winless in 19 of their former 21 overall match-ups. In the midst of it, they went through two separate four-game and five-game losing runs.
On the road, they have a single win from their last thirteen attempts. And to pile on, the Eagles are on a three-match winning run against this opponent, and are on an eight-fixture winning run in h2h clashes at this stadium.
In fact, they have always dominated h2h meetings over the years. As such, expect a convincing Lazio win this Thursday.
