Fiorentina Preview – Will Barca find their best form to leapfrog rivals heading into the final three games?

A fight against relegation with four games to go is not the campaign that Fiorentina would have expected but that’s the situation they find themselves in. The Viola are in 14th but still only four points above the bottom three. With just one win in seven there is no guarantees that the will find the form they need either. Their only win since the middle of March is a 2-1 victory away to Verona last month.

Had they managed to hold on to leads against Juventus or Bologna in the games that followed that win then it could well be a more comfortable situation for them but they now face an anxious spell.

Fiorentina do have a tough run-in starting with this game and they also host Napoli in what will be their final home match of the campaign. To make it even more interesting, their remaining away games are against teams who sit below them. Crotone are already relegated but Cagliari are very much involved in the battle to survive, currently three points behind them.

Although the team have struggled as a whole, the impressive Dusan Vlahovic is going from strength to strength. The young Serbian striker is on 19 goals in Serie A and is courting attention from elsewhere. He’s scored seven in his last six matches.

Lazio Preview – Can Atleti pull of a famous victory as they look for their first title since 2014?

Having had a taste of the Champions League this season, Lazio and their coach Simone Inzaghi will be desperate to get back there. In sixth spot heading into this weekend, Lazio are five points behind Juventus and Milan who are in third and fourth respectively. In their advantage, however, they have a game in hand and those two rivals play each other on Sunday – so at least one of them will drop points.

Inzaghi’s men have been in good form over the last couple of months, too, so confidence is high that they can get the results they need.

Last weekend’s 4-3 win at home to Genoa was their seventh win in the last eight matches with the only defeat being a 5-2 thrashing in Naples. There have been 35 goals in those nine matches – an average of nearly four goals. So there will be plenty of excitement in their final five games.

Like his opposite number tomorrow, Ciro Immobile is also on the search for his 20th goal of the league campaign and he’s in form with five in his last four. When he inevitably reaches the 20 goal mark it will be the fourth time in his five seasons with Lazio where he’s achieved this.

Fiorentina vs Lazio Betting Advice

It’s an important match in Florence on Saturday night with implications at both ends of the table. A win would probably see the home team safe for another season but a loss would put a huge bit of doubt in their minds for the run-in. Lazio, on the other hand, just have to keep winning games if they are to overtake the teams above them for a top four finish.

It’s the team from Rome who have an excellent record in this fixture having won six of the previous seven meetings.


Key Facts – Fiorentina vs Lazio Betting Tip

  • Fiorentina remain involved in the relegation battle having won once in their last seven
  • Lazio are looking for an ninth win in 10 matches as they hunt for Champions League qualification
  • The visitors are attempting to defeat their opponents for the seventh time in the last eight meetings


I alluded to how free-scoring Lazio have been and also their tendency to concede, and I expect this game will be no different. Fiorentina’s last 10 games have seen 41 goals scored as well so over 2.5 looks nailed on in this one.
