Simone Inzaghi records worst start as Lazio manager
Simone Inzaghi is experiencing his worst start to a season domestically at the helm of Lazio. After eight rounds of the 2019/20 Serie A campaign, the Biancocelesti sit in seventh place with a record of 3W-3D-2L. As a result, especially following numerous subpar performances and results, it could be argued that their main goal to secure UEFA Champions League football is unreasonable. It is also interesting to note that the current form the Biancocelesti are experiencing is their fourth-worst since 2000.
The Italian manager was officially appointed in the summer of 2016. Since then, he has overseen 159 matches in all competitions for his former club, regularly deploying his starting eleven in a 3-5-1-1 formation. Taking a glance at his record – at this point in time over his first three seasons – one can see that he secured a record of 4W-2D-2L (2016/17), 6W-1D-1L (2017/18), and 5W-0D-3L (2018/19).
With a trip to Florence against a passionate Fiorentina side next, Inzaghi’s men will need to step up their game and fast; they have failed to pick up a win away from Rome in their last three outings.
