Lazio in the Champions League zone
The start of the season for Lazio was marred by a disappointing trip to Denmark in the group stage of the Europa League, where Maurizio Sarri's team was defeated by Midtjylland 1-5. A terrible result. However, it was made up for by a great start in the domestic league. On the previous matchday, the Biancocelesti thrashed Cremonese 4-0 away. In total they have won four matches in seven rounds, occupying the fourth place in the standings, sitting in the Champions League zone. It seems that the national championship is the priority for Lazio.
Spezia are also off to a great start
The traditional task for Spezia in the current championship is to keep their place in the top flight. And the Eagles are off to a good start. In seven rounds the team, now managed by Luca Gotti, scored eight points, having already secured two victories. The last of them happened in the previous round, when Spezia saw off Sampdoria 2-1 at home. M'Bala Nzola and Jeison Murillo scored for the Eagles, with the latter scoring an own goal.
Injuries and suspensions
- Lazio: Nicolo Casale, Mohamed Fares will not play. Danilo Cataldi is questionable;
- Spezia: Kevin Agudelo, Viktor Kovalenko, Aurelien Nguiamba, Arkadiusz Reca, Jacopo Sala, Petko Hristov will not play.
Expert Betting Tips
Both face-offs between the opponents last season were very productive, 7 goals in each. However, it is unlikely that we should expect something similar in the upcoming game. Lazio has an excellent defensive performance at the start of the championship, having conceded only 2 goals in 7 games, so it is doubtful that Spezia will score more than a goal. The Eagles themselves, led by Luca Gotti, act from defense, and also probably will not allow the Romans to score more than 2-3 goals.
Prediction: Lazio, as a much classier team, is likely to win, but not in the easiest and low-scoring game.
