Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After dropping a two-goal advantage in a 3-2 loss to Atalanta, Lazio will be looking to return to winning ways when they welcome Fiorentina at their Stadio Olimpico. The Biancocelesti are now four points behind league leaders Juventus, meaning that they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Viola. The likes of Lulic, Marusic, Luiz Felipe, and Lucas Leiva remain in the recovery room, but Simone Inzaghi has a number of high-profile players to choose from.
Fiorentina, on the other hand, picked up only one point from a 1-1 draw with Brescia. Seeing that experienced defender Martin Caceres misses the Lazio game through suspension, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of shocking the capital club at Stadio Olimpico. In the first half of the season Lazio defeated Fiorentina 2-1 at Stadio Artemio Franchi, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
