Lazio vs Frosinone
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 2 September 2018
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Lazio have had a rough start to the season, but the Biancocelesti have had to take on both Napoli and Juventus for their first two games, so that’s hardly the kind of start any team would have wanted.
The Aquile will get a break, however, this weekend as they finally get an easier side. Next up on the menu is Frosinone, a team who are featuring in the top flight for only the second time in their history so as expected, they’re a team who many are expecting to head straight back down to Serie B.
Lazio narrowly missed out on Champions League football last season after losing to Inter on the final matchday and as a result will feature in the Europa League.
They will be hoping to finish in the top four, but as things stand, are in the bottom of the table. The Europa League does present an opportunity to sneak into the Champions League, but obviously one has to actually win it first and that’s a tricky proposition entirely.
Frosinone meanwhile are hoping to win their first game of the season and come into this game having managed to draw Bologna to pick up a vital point. It still helped to boost morale after being crushed 4-0 by Atalanta and they will hope to avoid another humiliating result this weekend.
Still, they’re well out of their depth and the onus will be on Lazio to use this as an opportunity to put some points in the bank after two frustrating results on matchdays one and two.
Lazio have never lost three straight opening games in their entire history, and whilst playing Napoli and Juventus was never going to weigh in their favor, they have been given a lifeline by taking on Frosinone.
Can they take advantage of this golden opportunity?

Lazio vs Frosinone: Prediction
Frosinone failed to score in either meeting with Lazio last time around so this could present a great chance for Lazio to get back on track after disappointing results against Napoli and recently, Juventus.
