Lazio will face Hellas Verona at the Stadio Olimpico at the midweek, looking to continue their 13-game unbeaten Serie A (SA) run (W12, D1) and keep their hopes of winning the title alive.
The hosts brushed aside SPAL with a commanding 5-1 home triumph last weekend, maintaining a five-point deficit to table-toppers Juventus. Also, the ‘Biancocelesti’ remain one of two sides yet to taste home defeat this season (W9, D2), winning seven consecutive SA home fixtures ahead of this encounter. Impressively, Simone Inzaghi’s men have netted over 2.5 goals in eight of their last nine league games held here, with 11 of their previous 17 goals scored at this venue coming in the first half (64.71%). They are likely to increase a remarkable attacking output here, as they’ve bagged three goals or more in five of their last seven competitive home H2Hs with Verona, netting precisely two goals apiece in the other two.
Meanwhile, the visitors somehow avoided defeat in their weekend’s away clash against AC Milan, clinching a 1-1 draw to extend their unbeaten SA run to six games (W3, D3). All six of those fixtures have seen some action in the first half, with each featuring at least one goal before halftime. But, a potential worry for the traveling fans could be Verona’s indifferent away form (W3, D3, L4). Also, their inability to capitalize on a quick-fire start has seen them throw away an early lead in three of their previous five SA road trips (D1, L2). A lack of away goals is another aspect of the game the Mastiffs will be looking to improve, as they’ve scored an average of 1.1 goals per SA road match so far this season.
