Lazio vs SPAL: Match Preview
The Biancocelesti’s eleven-game winning streak came to an end as they shared the spoils with Roma (1-1) in the Derby Della Capitale.
Simone Inzaghi’s side played one of their worst games of the season against the injury-hit ‘hosts’ as they recorded just three shots as opposed to Giallorossi’s sixteen.
With 46 points and a game in hand, Lazio are third in the Serie A standings, two points behind Inter and five points off the top. They will be eager to get their revenge for a 1-2 defeat at the Stadio Paolo Mazza in the reverse fixture.
Lazio have one of the best home records in the league with eight wins and two draws to date, averaging impressive three goals scored per match and shipping 0.80 in return. They have won their last six home fixtures with a combined goal difference of 20:4.
Gli Spalini failed to build on the sensational comeback win in Bergamo as they suffered a 1-3 home defeat to Sinisa Mihajlovic’s Bologna, their sixth in last eight league outings. As a result, they remained eighteenth, tied on points with fellow strugglers Genoa and Brescia.
The Ferrara-based outfit will be hoping to produce another clinical performance on the road when they take a trip to capital this weekend.
