Match Preview

Currently on their worst competitive run since December 2009 (D4, L3), Lazio are winless in five Serie A (SA) games (D4, L1) – their longest winless streak in SA since December 2015. Nonetheless they remain in the top five, and have won seven straight SA home games against Cagliari prior to this one.
With only two home losses in eight SA games at the Stadio Olimpico (W4, D2, L2) – both coming against top-four opposition – there is every suggestion that this H2H dominance in the capital can continue. Only once have Lazio failed to score at home this SA season, though they have kept just two clean sheets.
Cagliari are only five points above the relegation zone, and are winless in six games (D4, L2) – constituting their worst run since April 2015. Furthermore, no side has drawn more SA games than the visitors (eight), while only five sides have scored fewer goals (15).
The visitors have won just once in eight SA away matches this season (W1, D3, L4), although they have resiliently drawn three of last four (D3, L1). All the same, Cagliari have kept just one away clean sheet, while their tally of six away goals is the joint second-worst in the league.
Players to watch: Ciro Immobile had a hand in 50% of Lazio’s season goals (ten goals, one assist). For the visitors, João Pedro has two goals and two assists in his last nine SA matches.
Stat attack: Lazio have kept a first-half clean sheet in nine of their last ten SA H2H matches.
Lazio’s eight SA home matches have averaged 3.0 total goals per game, with a majority (five) witnessing over 2.5 goals.
Cagliari have conceded first in seven of their eight SA away matches this season, losing six at the break.
