Hellas Verona is hosting Lazio at Marc Antonio Bentegodi in round 36 in Italian Serie A.
Verona is having a tough time winning games, but the good thing is that they are not losing a lot of games. In their last 6 games, Verona is winless, but they lost only 2 games alongside 4 draws. In the standings, Verona is in high 9th place with 46 points, 43 scored goals, and 43 conceded goals. Verona is far from the relegation zone, and even though they are only 3 spots away from the Europa League, the difference is massive 14 points, which means Verona will not go to Europe next season. In their last Serie A game against Torino on the road, Verona has had 57% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and solid 77% of the correct passes. Verona got ahead in the 56th minute from the penalty spot, but Torino tied the game in the 67th minute. The final score in this match was 1-1. Pessina is Verona’s leading goal scorer with only 7 goals, while Di Carmine added 6 goals. Darko Lazovic added 7 assists. Pazzini, Kumbulla, and Adjapong are all injured, while Danzi, Bocchetti, and Dawidowicz are still questionable. A lot of favorites have dropped points when playing against Verona this season, and it's quite possible Lazio will do the same.
After 5 straight games without a win, Lazio has finally won all three points in Serie A. thanks to their terrible game after the restart, Lazio has lost every chance to win the title, and not only that, Lazio has dropped to 4th place in the standings with 72 points. Overall, Lazio is still among the best teams in Serie A with 71 scored goals and 38 conceded goals. Immobile is Lazio’s top goalscorer with 31 goals, while Caicedo added 9 goals. Luis Alberto has 14 assists. Lulic and Leiva are injured, while Lazzari is suspended because of the yellow cards. Lazio was struggling for a while on both ends after the restart, but in their latest Serie A game against Cagliari at home, Lazio was dominant with 64% of ball possession, massive 11 shots on goal, 13 corner kicks, and 83% of the correct passes. This was the Lazio I wanted to see, but unfortunately, it’s too little too late. Lazio has deservedly so won this match 2-1. Lazio will go to the Champions League next season, the only question is from which spot, but it doesn’t really matter because all of the top four spots in Serie A lead straight into the group stage of the Champions League. Lazio is a great team, but when Immobile is in bad form, Lazio is struggling with scoring goals, and I hope they will add some competition in the attacking end to their team in the offseason.
Verona hasn’t won any of their last 6 games, and any of their last 3 home games against Lazio. One win doesn’t take away the sting of losing 4 of their last 5 games, and Lazio will need to put their strongest game on display against solid Verona.
