Match Preview
Lazio’s season moves into a decisive phase starting with the match against Verona in Serie A (SA).
Simeone Inzaghi’s side are in the midst of a five-match winless run (D1, L4) in all competitions. That has seen them drop to fifth in SA and they now face an anxious couple of weeks where their fortunes in SA, the Coppa Italia, and the Europa League are all set to be decided. A win will certainly help them turn around their poor form.
Up against them is a side that has mastered poor spells this season, as Verona continue to flirt with danger. Having lost six of their last seven league games, the visitors are stuck in the heart of relegation (17th). Only a benevolent Benevento is saving them from being bottom-dwellers!
The hosts lost 2-1 to Genoa in their last home game, but did win three matches before that slip-up. During those matches, Lazio conceded just one goal while slamming in 12! The visitors, though, have just one win in their last five trips (D1, L3).
Lazio have the second-best goal scoring record in the league (59 goals) behind Juventus (61). Verona have conceded 24 goals on the road, a tally that is better than only three teams.
Key battles: Ciro Immobile (Lazio) has 20 league goals, but hasn’t scored since January 6.
Moise Kean (Verona) has two goals in his last two games and will look to continue that form in this one.
Stat attack: Lazio’s last home loss to Verona came all the way back in 1984, with eight wins and two draws punctuating their record hence.
The last time Lazio lost four league matches in a row was in May 2009.
Immobile hasn’t scored in his last three league matches. The last time he went four matches without a goal was in December 2016.
The last nine matches between these sides has produced 42 goals (Avg. 4.67 per match)!
