Salernitana vs Lazio
Italian Serie A
Date: 19 February 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Arechi (Salerno).
Salernitana host Lazio on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Arechi in Matchday No 23 in Serie A.
Both outfits will be hoping to bounce back from the recent failures. Salernitana lost four of the last five league outings and are now just four points above the relegation area.
We know that Salernitana have the worst defensive record in the Italian elite class (namely because of the 8-2 loss at Atalanta last month) with 42 goals allowed in 22 matches.
However, the team led by Davide Nicola have also been struggling badly to create chances at the opposite end if late.
Salernitana failed to score in three of the previous four league outings. They have done nothing to threaten Verona’s goal in a 1-0 defeat on Monday evening.
This will be the music to the ears of Maurizio Sarri whose Lazio have not quite been pulling up many trees of late.
I Biancocelesti are winless in four consecutive outings across competitions going into this trip to Salerno.
Lazio suffered a 0-2 defeat on the home patch to direct rivals in the battle for the Champions League spots Atalanta last Sunday.
Sarri’s men are now sixth in the Serie A ladder, sitting two points behind the main rivals in the battle for the top-four finish.
Salernitana vs Lazio Head-to-head
- Lazio suffered a shocking 1-3 defeat to Salernitana when these two teams locked horns in the first half of the season at Stadio Olimpico.
- I Biancocelesti still have a positive overall record with three wins and two losses in the clashes against Salernitana.
- We have seen at least three goals in each of the previous four head to head meetings between these two counterparts.
Salernitana vs Lazio Prediction
Lazio have been struggling offensively in the recent weeks but they are now up against the league’s worst defensive line. Knowing how bad Salernitana looked in the previous games, we have no other option but to back the visitors to claim an important three-pointer in the battle for the top-four finish.
The main pick is Lazio to win & Over 2.5 goals FT at the 2.62 odds. We will alternatively take the 2.05 odds offered for their main star Ciro Immobile to score anytime on Sunday.
