Verona vs Lazio Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for Italian Serie A match on Sunday, 26 July 2020. Scheduled Kick off 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Verona will be in contempt with playing another season in Serie A after the promotion. They are not at their best form in the league lately and will have trouble even at home.
Lazio has confirmed their Champions League Group stage with an 11 point lead over the team behind them in the league table. They have also made a comeback and will try to work on that.
Verona has been winless for the past six fixtures in the schedule with just two losses in it. Their previous two encounters finished in the same 1-1 draw, following a draw on the road against Torino last time out.
July has been a rough month for Lazio with five of their six matches turned winless in that period. Four of those five were straight defeats and they will visit after a 2-1 win at home against Cagliari.
With just four losses in their 17 home matches so far this season and just one loss coming within the recent five attempts, the host will not worry about their ground advantage in the game.
Meanwhile, the visitor has 5 losses in their 17 away fixtures until now in the campaign and three of those came within the recent five outings in the league away schedule.
What the visitor lacks in their away form, they will probably make up to it in their overall form and squad strength over the home team in the encounter at Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Verona vs Lazio Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has been unbeaten in their last eight meetings.
- Three of Lazio’s last five wins saw them keep a clean sheet.
- Their previous encounter resulted in a goalless draw at Rome.
- Four of the last five matches here saw both teams score.
- The host is winless at home in their recent three fixtures.
Verona vs Lazio Prediction
Verona is struggling with winless games in their schedule, but most of them are draws which will be a slight comfort for the home team. Besides, their record as a host is better with just one loss in the last five home matches in the campaign.
Lazio was seen taking a surprise downhill ride lately, and they proved a comeback with a home win last time out in the league. With their h2h history, the visitor might be close to proving their worth in the campaign with their squad strength.
The draw no bet over Lazio with 1.50 odds will probably be the safest bet for the punters.
It has to be noted that since 2017, Lazio has kept a clean sheet against Verona in all three clashes while scoring 5 goals against them within that period. The tip for over 2.5 goals at 1.66 odds seems probable in this scenario.
This puts doubt in the tip for BTTS, but considering the visitor’s recent dip in form and the host’s last five matches, having both teams score; a BTTS with 1.57 odds seems probable for the ninety minutes.
