Lazio vs Hellas Verona
Italy – Serie A
Date: Monday, 19 February 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Lazio’s form has seen a massive slump of late as Biancocelesti have made it three consecutive losses to drop out of the top four in the Serie A standings. Can Simone Inzaghi’s men finally arrest it on Monday when they host the relegation strugglers Hellas Verona in the last game of the Matchday No 25?
Biancocelesti have The dreadful run of results was continued on Thursday evening when Biancocelesti fell 1-0 away at FCSB in the first leg of their last 32 round tie in Europa League. The drop in form somewhat came together with the injury of their star man Ciro Immobile who skipped most of the mentioned games, but who is expected to be in the starting linuep for this league clash with Gialloblu.
The visitors just aren’t pulling up any trees either as two consecutive defeats leave them second from bottom in the league ladder ahead of this tough trip to the capital. The impressive 1-4 win away at Fiorentina did not help the team take advantage of the momentum as Hellas Verona have quickly returned to the old habits losing last two matches to Roma and Sampdoria without netting a single goal in the process.
Lazio vs Verona: Head-to-head
Trips to the capital have not been a pleasant experience for Gialloblu over the course of history.
Lazio have won seven and drawn one of eight home matches against Hellas Verona.
Biancocelesti will head into this off the back of four consecutive wins over Verona having netted as many as eight goals on last two occasions.
Lazio vs Verona: Prediction
The hosts are desperate for the result here if they want to keep ground on the likes of Inter and Roma in the battle for the Champions League football next term.
Since Lazio have been super dominant in the history of H2H matches with Verona at Olimpico, we’ll go with the comprehensive home victory and back Lazio to win by two or more as the main betting call.
