Lazio is welcoming Hellas Verona to Stadio Olimpico in round 11 in the Italian Serie A.
Lazio has been playing well, and they have lost only 1 of their last 12 games, and they have advanced to the next stage of the Champions League. Lazio needed a win or a draw in their last Champions League game earlier this week, and they were successful, their game ended in a 2-2 draw. In their last Serie A game, Lazio was playing against Spezia on the road, and they have had only 35% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and only 76% of the correct passes. Lazio has scored 2 goals in the first half, and they were defending well throughout the entire game. Lazio has won this match 1-2. With 17 points, 16 scored goals, and 17 conceded goals, Lazio is now in 7th place in the Serie A standings. With 6 goals so far, Immobile is Lazio’s leading goalscorer, while Milinkovic-Savic and Caicedo added 3 goals each. Milinkovic-Savic also added 2 assists. Proto, Lulic, and Muriqi are all injured for Lazio at the moment. Thre pressure is off, and Lazio can now focus on Serie A, and try to continue winning games.
Verona is once again having a fantastic season, and they are now in 8th place with 16 points, 13 scored goals, and 8 conceded goals so far. Verona hasn’t lost any of their last 2 games in Serie A while scoring 3 goals and conceding only 1 goal in those 2 games. Barak is the leading goalscorer for Verona with only 3 goals, while Favilli and Zaccagni added 2 goals each. Dimarco and Zaccagni each added 2 assists. Benassi, Vieira, and Gunter are injured, while Kalinic and Cetin are still questionable. Ceccherini is suspended because of the yellow cards. In their latest Serie A game, Verona was hosting Cagliari, and they have had 51% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 81% of the correct passes. Verona got ahead in the 21st minute, but Cagliari tied the score at the start of the second half. The final score of this game was 1-1. Verona has had a lot of injured players a few weeks ago, but they are slowly recovering, and I think we can expect more good games from Verona, maybe even some offensive effort. Verona is known as a defensive team, and a lot of good teams have lost points against them.
When playing at home, Lazio has not lost to Verona in their last 10 games. Lazio is the better team here overall, but with the pressure of the Champions League off, I feel Lazio will step up their game. I will take Lazio at home in this one.
