TIP OF THE DAY: Fiorentina vs. Lazio: Lazio often leaves Fiorentina empty-handed!

This Monday’s betting lineup might not be as rich as the previous days, but we’ve analyzed the concluding match of Serie A’s 26th round, where Fiorentina will host Lazio in Florence. The game starts at 20:45.

Fiorentina: Fiorentina rarely outperforms Lazio in Serie A!

Last season, Fiorentina finished in eighth place, which wasn’t enough for a spot in European competitions. However, Juventus’s suspension from Europe opened up a spot for Fiorentina, which is also competing in the Conference League this season, reminding us that they reached the grand final last season but, unfortunately, lost to West Ham after a turnaround.

Additionally, Fiorentina played in the Italian Cup final last season, where they lost again, this time to Inter, but the overall impression from last season is more than positive. This time, the primary goal will be direct qualification for the Europa League, but this will not be an easy task, especially looking at the table since Vincenzo Italiano’s team is currently in eighth place with three points less than sixth-placed Roma, which has been playing exceptionally since Daniele De Rossi took over the helm.

In the last five league matches, Fiorentina has only secured one win, a very convincing one at Artemio Franchi against Frosinone with a score of 5:1, but besides that, the club has experienced three defeats and one draw. In the previous round, Italiano’s squad drew on their visit to Empoli, with that Tuscan clash ending 1:1. Before that, the Conference League’s last season finalist lost on their visit to Bologna, which has been playing fantastically this season and is a legitimate candidate for a Champions League spot. Regarding home performances, Fiorentina has played twelve matches so far, achieving seven wins, two draws, and three losses.

As the title suggests, Fiorentina very rarely wins against Lazio lately, with the last victory being in May 2021 with a score of 2:0, and before that, not since 2017, making it seem like Fiorentina faces an extremely challenging task tonight. Finally, Fiorentina represents Italy in the Conference League this season too, finishing the group stage in first place with two more points than Hungarian team Ferencváros, securing three wins and three losses in six matches played.

Their opponent in the round of 16 will be Israeli team Maccabi Haifa, which, as is well known, played in the Champions League group stage last season.

Lazio: A very important match for Laziali!

Lazio had an outstanding season last year, managing to secure second place against all odds and thereby direct entry into the most prestigious European club competition, which has been the club’s primary goal for years. Speaking of the Champions League, it’s worth noting the fairly good performance of the Italian representative in the group stage of the elite competition, where Maurizio Sarri’s charges finished second in their group with four points less than leader Atletico Madrid, but equally ahead of third-placed Feyenoord.

At the draw for the round of 16 of the Champions League, everyone at the club held their breath when they saw Bayern Munich as their opponent. However, the Bavarians are playing their weakest season in the last two decades, which was evident recently when Lazio celebrated a 1:0 victory at home in the first match, with the only goal coming from Immobile from the penalty spot. The return leg is soon, and with a bit of luck, it’s very possible we could see Lazio in the quarter-finals of the elite competition, which would undoubtedly be a huge success for the team.

As for Serie A, it was hard to expect the capital’s team to replicate last season’s brilliant performances, as they currently stand in seventh place with one point less than sixth-placed Roma, noting that both city rivals play their league matches tonight. In the last five league matches, Sarri’s charges have recorded two wins, two losses, and one draw, the latter being at home against current champions Napoli in a goalless match. In the last round, the Romans celebrated a tough away victory at Torino with a score of 0:2, while before that, the capital’s team lost at home to this season’s excellent Bologna, which is currently in fourth place.

Finally, in away games this season, Lazio has played thirteen matches, securing six wins, the same number of losses, and one draw, but it’s worth mentioning that Lazio has achieved four wins in their last five away games.

Our suggestion

Looking at the tradition, we see that Fiorentina has managed to beat Lazio only once in the last fourteen encounters. Adding to that the fact that Fiorentina is playing significantly worse than at the season’s start, we conclude that the capital’s team won’t lose this game, which is why we suggest playing a double chance X2 with odds of 1.61.

It’s very possible that both teams could score at least one goal each in this match at Artemio Franchi, so we recommend playing GG (both teams to score) offered by Betbonanza with odds of 1.93.

Lastly, for the bravest, we suggest trying the option 2 (away win), for which Betbonanza offers odds of 3.25.
