By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri has never previously faced Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano.

The two coaches’ times in Serie A had not previously overlapped, with Italiano’s breakthrough with Spezia last season coming whilst the 62-year-old Italian coach was out of work.

The year prior, the 43-year-old coach was guiding the Ligurian side to the Italian topflight from Serie B, whilst Sarri was with Juventus.

His work with the Ligurian club secured him a move to Fiorentina earlier this year and life has started well for him in Florence so far, with the team currently sitting 7th in the table after nine games.

Fiorentina are currently one point above Lazio in the league table, having won five of their nine matches, losing the other four.
