Lazio’s title hopes suffered a huge blow in midweek and they will be looking to bounce back when hosting draw specialists Fiorentina on Saturday evening.

Lazio Preview – Now four points off top, can Lazio show resilience and keep pace with leaders?

Two goals up away to Atalanta in the first 20 minutes had Lazio dreaming even more of a first Serie title in 20 years. The fact that they were unable to hold on to that lead and ending up leaving Bergamo with no points could well be the defining point of what has been a very good season so far. Simone Inzaghi’s men were unable to halt Atalanta when they got into full flow and now sit four points behind Juventus at the top of the table.

There is absolutely no disgrace in losing to Atalanta but there will be some regret and a lot of frustration at being two goals up and not being able to see it out.

Our betting prediction:
Ciro Immobile to score in 90 minutes

Four points is in no way an insurmountable deficit but the challenge for Lazio is to bounce back from that disappointment which the best teams are able to. And is a mark of champions. The fact that they are likely to be seven points behind (Juventus host lowly Lecce on Friday) is just going to heap more pressure on Inzaghi and his players.

No visiting team has beaten Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico this season. Their record is 11 wins and three draws with Verona, Atalanta and Roma the only teams to have taken anything away from them.

Fiorentina Preview – Can Fiorentina end their run of draws to record a first win in four?

Giuseppe Iachini took over as Fiorentina boss last December and he is slowly moving the club clear of safety. Their last 10 games in Serie A have seen them lost just two (one against Juventus, one against Atalanta) and more crucially they have been able to pick up three wins in that time. Those victories are the key reason which has seen them move closer to mid-table and six points clear of the relegation zone.

As there are still 11 games to go then six points is still going to have them looking over their shoulder but they are showing much more resilience under this coach than earlier in the season.

Although it was another point towards safety, Monday’s draw with Brescia would have been a frustrating one for Fiorentina because it was a home game against a team below them. Those are the sort of games where they will be expecting to pick up points and would give them some more cushion going into fixtures like this one on Saturday.

Fiorentina have taken some notable scalps on their travels this season beating both Milan and Napoli and also getting a point against Atalanta.

Lazio vs Fiorentina Betting Advice

The teams met in Florence back in October and a winning strike from Serie A top scorer Ciro Immobile secured three points for Lazio. That extended the Rome club’s unbeaten run against this opponent to six games with Fiorentina’s last victory coming back in 2017.

Both teams are coming into this game on the back of disappointing defeats last time out so will be even more determined to get a positive result in this one.

Key Facts – Lazio vs Fiorentina Betting Tip

  • It was a third defeat of the season for Lazio on Wednesday, losing 3-2 away to Atalanta
  • Fiorentina have drawn their last three league games making it 10 for the season so far
  • A last minute goal from Ciro Immobile gave Lazio the three points when the sides met in Florence

What we have seen from Lazio this season has been very impressive and they have answered virtually every question that has been asked of them. And they’ve also responded to their few setbacks.

As such, I’m siding with them to get the win here and end the weekend no more than four points behind Juventus
