Forecast and bet on Fiorentina v Lazio, stats, odds. On Matchday 24 of the Italian Serie A, Fiorentina will take on Lazio who were defeated on home soil last time out. Can the Fiorentinians succeed on February 5 without their main attacking force?
After their 4-0 defeat at the hands of Torino in Turin, Fiorentina bounced back and in the next fixture they demolished Genoa 6-0 at home. However, following Dusan Vlahovic’s move to Juventus, Vincenzo Italiano’s side were unable to overcome the crisis at home to Cagliari (1-1).
Brazilian forward Arturo Cabral was urgently recruited to replace the Serbian. As a result, the Florentines have 36 points and sit seventh in the table, seven points behind the Champions League zone.
Lazio have earned the same number of points as their current opponents, but have played one more game. Maurizio Sarri’s side are not as convincing defensively as their opponent in the upcoming match, but they are just as sharp and productive offensively.
In the previous fixture, they drew 0-0 at home to Atalanta and then took on the Salernitana 3-0 on the road. Francesco Acerbi has not yet fully recovered from his muscular injury and may not take to the pitch in Florence.
Both teams would not mind breaking into the top five of Serie A and they have everything they need to do so. However, Fiorentina’s situation is a little simpler – the club has a game in hand and if they succeed in this meeting, the Fiorentina side can overtake Roma in the table. The absence of the Serbian striker could affect the Florentines’ potential up front, but even without him, the team looks very consistent in their attacking performance and has excellent forwards.
Lazio are unstable on the road and lose more often than not when they are at odds with their opponents, as evidenced by three defeats in their previous six away fixtures. Most likely, we should expect a roughly even game, where everyone will try to get three points. However, in our opinion, the hosts are closer to winning and we suggest to take advantage of this by backing the bet.
