The starting lineups for this afternoon’s Serie A match between Raffaele Palladino’s Monza and Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio have been announced.
Recent History & Form
Lazio had an interesting March, starting the month with a sensational 1-0 away win against league leaders Napoli but suffering an embarrassing 4-2 aggregate loss to AZ Alkmaar in the Europa Conference League, with a goalless draw with Bologna in the middle of that tie.
Sarri’s side closed out the month with a much-needed 1-0 win over rivals Roma in the Derby della Capitale, putting them in a strong spot in the race for a top four finish.
Monza find themselves comfortably in the mid-table as they approach the final 11 games of the season, taking off some of the pressure as they look set to survive in their debut campaign in the Italian topflight.
Palladino’s side have picked up five points from their last three outings, beating Empoli and drawing Hellas Verona and Cremonese.
