SPAL vs Lazio Prediction & Match Preview

SPAL vs Lazio
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 3rd April 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara).

Lazio occupies the lone direct-qualification spot to the Europa but is fiercely being pursued by Atalanta, who has the same points as them and by Roma, who has just a single point-deficit. With Atalanta having an easier fixture this week, Lazio is obligated to perform well this Wednesday, and take home the three points at any cost.

Spal has a four-point buffer over the relegation line, but teams below them have shifted gears with the looming end of the season. As has been usual in league football, a four-point surplus can vanish over a single match-day. The team needs some good results in the next fixtures to ensure their future in Serie A.

SPAL vs Lazio Prediction

Lazio needs this win. Period. They are directly below the spots that open gates to the Champions League, and trails by only three points. Moreover, they are in danger of losing their current possession, the direct-promotion spot to the Europa, to Atalanta. The latter has posted the same number of points on the board and has a comparatively easier fixture this week. Roma is also in the equation, with a deficit of a single point.

H2h ties surely point towards a comfortable Lazio win. The reverse fixture saw them taking the three points in style, with a 4-1 win. They also won the last three h2h games, and have never lost against Spal. Importantly, at this venue, Lazio boasts of a 100% winning record.

Going on, only once has Lazio failed to score at least two goals against this team, and the last time they met at this venue, the visitors put five goals past Spal.

Taking into account the domination of Lazio in face-to-face encounters, their current form in the league, respective positions in the table, and Lazio’s desperation to win owing to the competition offered by the likes of Atalanta and Roma expect a convincing win for them.
