Lazio vs Fiorentina Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for Italian Serie A match on Saturday, 27 June 2020. Kick off 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET at the Stadio Olimpico.
The loss the last match-day against Atalanta has hugely hurt the Eagles and their ambitions to dethrone Juventus from the top. In fact, except for Juve fans, the rest of the league have been hoping for the Old Lady’s monopoly to come to an end, as it’s been devaluing the Serie A a bit as a one-horse race.
To pile on, Maurizio Sarri’s men recorded a win the past game week, and put themselves four points ahead, and with an easier fixture coming up for them next, things looks pretty tough for the Eagles at least in the near future.
However, they do not have any option but to fight till the end. Despite the win, the Old Lady was not at all impressive, and there’s a chance they might drop points as the season progresses. The Eagles meanwhile will have to amass as much points as they could to pounce when the opportunity arrives.
Considering the struggles of the Purples in overall fixtures as well as on the road, and the dominating h2h performances of the Eagles over the years – it seems as if Lazio will deliver a win this Saturday.
Lazio vs Fiorentina: Head-to-head (h2h)
- 13 of the previous 17 wins had gone to the Eagles.
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 1-2 win for the Eagles.
- It’s been three years since the Purples have recorded a victory.
- 17 of the former 22 wins had gone to the hosts at this venue.
- Six of the preceding ten encounters at this ground saw the home team keeping clean sheets.
Lazio vs Fiorentina: Prediction
The Eagles lost 3-2 on the road the last match-day, against Atalanta. The fact that the guests blew a two-goal lead will surely hurt them, especially considering that it has hurt them in the title-race.
In the meantime, the Purples were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Brescia. Both goals had come early in the game.
As things stand, the Eagles are easily the favorites. They are hurt after losing their previous game, and will be determined to get back on the winning track and resume the title-race. On top of that, the Eagles had won five of their past six overall fixtures, and were unbeaten in 25 of their last 30 games.
Impressively, three of these five total losses had come in the Europa League, and the remaining two losses were against Napoli and Atalanta. At home, they are on a 13-match unbeaten run, and of these 12 were wins.
Going on, the Purples were winless in seven of their past eight overall match-ups, and they were winless in seven of their prior nine road trips as well. On top of that, the Eagles have heavily dominated the h2h meetings over the years too.
Considering these observations, expect a win for Lazio this weekend.
