Hellas Verona vs Lazio
Italian Serie A – Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 26th September 2017
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Although Lazio ended up being crushed by Napoli, they have a chance to regroup and rebound as they take on Hellas Verona on Sunday evening. Meanwhile, the Gialloblu will be desperate to grind out another draw after successfully stopping the downward slide by earning a scoreless stalemate with Sampdoria midweek.
It was a welcome respite for Verona, who had suffered crushing losses to Fiorentina and Roma, during which they had conceded eight goals and scored none. Verona unfortunately are likely to be able to trouble Lazio much, who will be aiming to rebound after a shocking second half collapse against Napoli.
The race for a top four spot will be quite interesting, as it’s going to definitely be involving Juventus, Roma, Napoli, AC Milan, and Inter.
Lazio definitely want to be in that mix and the Biancocelesti have a strong record against the bottom sides, especially those battling relegation.
In fact the Aquile earned a perfect winning record against the bottom three last term and they should be able to cruise to a relatively comfortable win against the Gialloblu, regardless of the fact that they managed to hold Sampdoria to a 0-0 draw midweek.
Lazio will be smarting after their heavy loss and hungry for revenge, and this will be the perfect opportunity for them to get back to winning ways ahead of their Europa League match coming up in a few days’ time.
