Fiorentina and Lazio will face each other in Serie A next week. The match will be held at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence and is scheduled to kick off at 7:45pm UK time next Monday.

Fiorentina

Fiorentina did relatively well last season. The Italian club ended up as high as seventh in the Serie A table and will hope to push for a higher finish this time around. Vincenzo Italiano’s side, though, are not struggling at the moment and things are looking bleak for them.

I Viola are 11th in the Serie A table at the moment with nine points from eight matches. Fiorentina are as many as nine points behind fourth-placed Lazio and are only four points above the relegation zone at the moment.

Fiorentina suffered a 1-0 defeat to Atalanta away from home in Serie A last weekend. It followed a 2-0 victory over Hellas Verona at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence in Serie A. They will lock horns with Heart of Midlothian away from home in Scotland in UEFA Europa Conference League Group A on Thursday.

Team News:

Right-back Dodo is out due to a calf injury. Lorenzo Venuti is set to continue to play instead.

Lazio

Lazio did very well in Serie A last season and will have been disappointed not to end up in the top four. The Eagles ended the campaign with 64 points from 38 matches, only six points behind fourth-placed Juventus.

Maurizio Sarri’s side will be determined to end up in the UEFA Champions League places in the Serie A table this season, and they are well on their way. Lazio are fourth in the Serie A table at the moment with 17 points from eight matches, just three points behind leaders Napoli.

Lazio hammered Spezia 4-0 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome in Serie A last weekend. It followed a 4-0 victory over Cremonese away from home in the league. Lazio will take on SK Sturm Graz in UEFA Europa League Group F on Thursday evening.

Team News:

Lazio have no injury worries other than for Nicolo Casale. Elseid Hysaj is likely to start in a back-four, while  Matias Vecino and Marcos Antonio could feature in midfield.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Fiorentina have lost 3 of their last 6 competitive matches.
  • Fiorentina have won 1 of their last 6 competitive matches.
  • Fiorentina have scored and conceded 7 goals in 8 Serie A matches.
  • Lazio have scored 17 goals in 8 Serie A games.
  • Lazio have conceded 5 goals in 8 Serie A games.

Conclusion

Lazio are doing much better than Fiorentina, and despite being the visiting team for this Serie A game, it is likely that they will win it.
