Fiorentina vs Lazio: Recent History

Fiorentina’s season has started incredibly inconsistently, with Vincenzo Italiano’s side sometimes looking lethal, like in their 3-0 win over Hearts in the Europa Conference League, and other teams looking timid, like in their 2-1 loss to Bologna. The Viola are hoping to shake off this poor start and build some momentum after their recent success in Scotland.

Lazio came out the international break swinging with a confident 4-0 win over Spezia but looked much more muted in a tough 0-0 draw with Sturm Graz in their third Europa League match. Maurizio Sarri will be hoping to see a more positive display under the night sky of Florence. 

The Biancocelesti overpowered the Viola last season and won both meetings, picking up a 1-0 victory at home and a 3-0 win away.

Expected Starting Lineups

Italiano’s Fiorentina cannot count on Gaetano Castrovilli or Riccardo Sottil for the evening home clash with Lazio, who themselves are doing without Mario Gila following a recent muscle issue. Nicolo Casale is also in doubt due to an adductor issue.

Fiorentina (4-3-3): Terracciano; Venuti, Milenkovic, Martinez Quarta, Biraghi; Bonaventura, Amrabat, Barak; Ikone, Jovic, Kouame.

Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Patric, Romagnoli, Marusic; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni.
