Atalanta & Roma’s Dropped Points Gives Lazio a Big Opportunity vs Venezia

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio are fighting to secure European qualification and that hunt continues today against Venezia.

Atalanta disappointed yesterday by failing to pick up three points against Serie A strugglers and Roma only managed to secure a point from their match against Udinese, grabbing a last minute equaliser. These results have serious implications for the Biancocelesti.

Lazio’s Expected Starting Lineup for Serie A Clash vs Venezia

As highlighted by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), a win for Lazio today against Venezia would take them to 5th in the Serie A table with 49 points, one ahead of both Roma and Atalanta. They would still be seven points behind 4th place Juventus, making Champions League qualification unlikely.

It will be a difficult match for Maurizio Sarri and his team however, as Stefan Radu and Patric are both absent and Manuel Lazzari has not played a full 90 minutes for a while now following his injury.

Venezia are also in the fight to avoid relegation this season and so they’ll be fighting tooth and nail at the Stadio Olimpico this evening.
