SPAL vs Lazio
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 15 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara).
SPAL are one of the five teams with zero points after two opening rounds. They must be gutted to share the bottom after being 2-0 up against Atalanta and conceding so late in the game against Bologna.
Truth to be told, they were vastly inferior in both games as they allowed 35 shots combined and more than 20 goal-scoring chances. ‘Gli Spallini’ will host Lazio on Sunday and they’re still without injured duo Fares and Sala.
The ‘Biancocelesti’ cruised to 3-0 victory over Sampdoria in the season opener and drew 1-1 against arch rivals Roma in a pulsating edition of Derby della Capitale, in Round 2. Lazio were unlucky not to win as they had 21 shots, 13 on target, hit the woodwork four times and had a goal disallowed in the stopagges.
It’s time to take a trip to Ferrara to face SPAL before they take on European adventure.
SPAL vs Lazio: Head to Head
These two sides have met seven times in the past and Lazio is leading the way with 5 wins, a draw and a loss.
SPAL have won the latest outing at this venue. However, in season 2017/18, they were beaten 2-5 at home. Immobile scored four in that one.
The ‘Biancocelesti’ have scored at least two goals in five of the seven meetings against ‘Gli Spallini’.
Three of the last five meeting had over 2.5 goals.

SPAL vs Lazio: Prediction
Lazio are probably playing the best football in Serie A at the moment. They took 37 shots in first two games and created 25 goal-scoring opportunities. They are big favourites to win the Sunday matchup and I’m willing to back them.
SPAL are about to play another tough game and I can’t see them repeating last season’s result with the form they’re in, but I am confident they will score, as they’ve done that every single time last season when they were listed as big underdogs at home.
