Lazio travel to Verona to take on Chievo Verona this afternoon, with Simone Inzaghi eager to put the side’s 2-0 loss to Cypriot side Apollon Limassol behind them to get back into the winning way.

Match facts courtesy of Opta:

  • Chievo lost both games against Lazio last season – they’ve never lost three in a row against the Biancocelesti in the top-flight.
  • Lazio have won nine of their 16 previous meetings against Chievo at the Bentegodi (D5 L2).
  • Chievo are only the third team that have failed to win in the opening 13 matchdays over the last 10 Serie A campaigns, after Verona in 2015/16 and Benevento in 2017/18.
