Lazio vs Fiorentina
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 6 January 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Olimpico Stadium, Rome.
Lazio see themselves well off the top 4 in Serie A after being denied points in a thriller at AC Milan (3-2) in December and failing to bounce in Genoa (1-1) last week. They host Fiorentina for their Matchday 16 clash desperate to bounce to the winning ways at Olimpico Stadium, where they beat Napoli (2-0) last time out.
Biancocelesti haven’t really felt stable at the back here either, though, and this could be just as worrying for Simone Inzaghi. They have been scoring goals and will surely employ an attacking approach now as well, which promises an attacking approach on Wednesday afternoon.
Fiorentina come into the match with a goalless draw against Bologna behind them, which was their third draw in four outings. Viola beat Juventus (0-3) along the way and will now hope for a similar upset in Rome. They lacked consistency and sit in the bottom part of the table for it, but Cesare Prandelli’s side is a work in progress – which has us hoping for an exciting performance this time around.
Lazio vs Fiorentina Head-to-head
- Lazio beat Fiorentina with two goals to one in both of their head-to-head clashes last term.

Lazio vs Fiorentina Prediction
Lazio should be able to build on such dominant head-to-head records and we’re backing them to secure all three points on Wednesday. We will go for a Home win at 1.75, which looks like value seeing Fiorentina struggle to turn games their way and this came especially obvious against big guns.
Still, we hope Viola will make an impact and we’re going for a more exciting game on their end here. Lazio have been more used to goals and with that in mind, they could outgun Fiorentina to secure the points. We will thus go for Over 2.5 Goals FT and a YES on Both teams to score at 2.10.
