Lazio will be looking to post a fourth consecutive Serie A victory over Sampdoria when the two sides meet at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
After suffering back-to-back defeats at the beginning of the 2020/21 Serie A season, Fiorentina bounced back last time out, beating Fiorentina 2-1 on the road. It now means that each of their opening three league fixtures produced goals in both halves and over 2.5 goals at full-time. Lapses of concentration in the late stages of the game have seen five of Sampdoria’s seven Serie A goals conceded so far arrive beyond the 70-minute mark. It is also worth noting that the hosts have lost all four of their previous top-flight H2Hs held at this venue, shipping over 1.5 goals in each. Interestingly, though, the Stadio Luigi Ferraris has been a venue of entertainment post lockdown, as all of their six league matches held here have featured over 2.5 goals (W2, L4).
Meanwhile, the visitors have picked up a little bit of everything from their opening three Serie A games (W1, D1, L1), conceding the opener before or on the half-hour mark in the last two. High scoring has been a theme for Lazio away from home this calendar year. Indeed, 66.67% (eight) of their 12 league trips since the turn of 2020 saw over 2.5 goals and both teams on the scoresheet (W6, D2, L4). Another ‘goal-friendly’ contest is well on the cards here, given that nine of their previous top-flight H2Hs have contained over 2.5 goals with both teams scoring in seven. The ‘Biancocelesti’ showed the capacity to respond after falling behind, suffering just three defeats from nine Serie A trips in which they conceded the opening goal back in 2019/20 (W4, D2, L3).
