While Lazio failed to beat Sturm on Thursday, Fiorentina won their Europa League fixture. They confidently beat Scottish side Heart (3:0) on the road. The Pitmen could not hit the Latvian RFK (1:1) and crushed the Turkish Başakşehir (0:3).
Fiorentina is doing better in the Europa League, but their domestic league standing is still poor. After a long-awaited 3:0 win against Verona in the previous round, the Florentines lost again, this time to Atalanta (0:1). The game's only goal came midway through the second half. After eight rounds, Fiorentina has only nine points and just seven goals.
As Thursday's match against Sturm showed, they aren't betting on the Europa League at this stage, giving priority to the domestic league. Thus, after their 1:5 defeat in Denmark, Lazio confidently beat Verona (2:0) and Cremonese (4:0) in Serie A. Now, before the match in Austria, they have convincingly beaten La Spezia (4:0). In their meeting with Fiorentina, Lazio will be closer to clinching a win. By the way, the Romans have 17 points after eight rounds and sit fourth in the standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Last season, Lazio beat Fiorentina FC twice on the road (1:0 at home and 3:0 away). That means their coach has a good idea of how to deal with their opponents. The encounter is unlikely to be very productive, considering Fiorentina's problems in attack, and is likely to end in a win for the Biancocelesti.
