Three previous meetings between Lazio and Fiorentina ended in victories for the Romans. Will the Florentines be able to break this disappointing streak?Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
After starting the second leg with two disappointing matches, a 1:2 loss to Lecce and a 2:2 draw with Empoli, the team went on to win three consecutive victories. First, Lazio beat Sassuolo away (2:0), then knocked Bologna out of the Italian Cup (1:0) on home soil. Last Tuesday, they thrashed AC Milan 4:0 at home. Perhaps the brightest victory this season allowed Lazio to climb to third place in the Serie A standings. They are now 13 points behind first place.
While Lazio has been conceding no goals and winning lately, Vicenzo Italiano's squad, on the other hand, has been unable to score. After losing to injury to Artur Cabral, Fiorentina somehow managed to come through in the Italian Cup with Sampdoria (1:0) and then failed to Roma (0:2) and Torino (0:1) in the domestic championship. Despite the abundance of forwards in the lineup, Ikon, Jovic, Barak, and Kouame, none of them can be as effective as Cabral for some reason. Fiorentina can only wait for the return of the Brazilian ex-Basel player from the infirmary. Fiorentina is 11th in Serie A, five points behind the European sevens.
