Lazio is hosting Fiorentina at Stadio Olimpico in round 28 of Italian Serie A.
Lazio was playing fantastic soccer before the break, especially in the attacking end. Before their first game back, Lazio has had 62 points and was in second place with just one point behind Juventus, but unfortunately for Lazio, they lost their game earlier this week, while Juventus won theirs. The difference is now 4 points. Lazio has scored massive 62 goals this season, while their defense has been one of the best in Serie A with only 26 conceded goals. In their last game against Atalanta on the road, Lazio has had only 40% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, and 75% of the correct passes. This was a fantastic game where Lazio had a 1-2 lead at the half-time, but Atalanta completely turned the game around in the second half, and Lazio has lost this game 3-2. This was one of the worst games for Lazio this season, and now is the time to shake it off and to get back on winning track if Lazio wants to stay close to Juventus. Ciro Immobile has scored 27 goals for Lazio this season, while Luis Alberto added 12 assists. Lulic and Felipe are both injured, while Leiva is still questionable. I really hope that Lazio can stay consistent and that they can get back on the winning track because it’s about time that someone takes the title from Juventus.
Fiorentina hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games, but they are struggling massively with scoring goals as of late. Fiorentina has scored only 33 goals so far this season, conceded 37 goals, while they won 31 points which are enough for 13th place in the standings. Closer to the relegation zone than to the Europa League. It’s a shame that Fiorentina can’t get into a better form because they certainly have the quality to be much higher in the standings, but something is very wrong in this club. In their last Serie A match against Brescia, Fiorentina was the better team with 57% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, and 85% of the correct passes, but unfortunately for Fiorentina, this was enough only for 1-1 tie. As I’ve said earlier, Fiorentina is struggling massively with scoring goals. Kouame is injured and he will not be playing in this game. Vlahovic and Chiesa have both scored 6 goals for Fiorentina this season, far from enough for Fiorentina to compete with the big dogs. I’m confident that Fiorentina will stay outside the relegation zone, but the rest of the season will be incredibly tense for them if Fiorentina continues playing this bad soccer in the attacking end.
When playing at home, Lazio has not lost to Fiorentina in their last 4 games, and Lazio hasn’t lost any of their last 11 home games overall. I will side with Lazio here because they need a win more than Fiorentina to stay on Juventus’ tail and possibly even take the first place from them soon.
