Lazio vs Cremonese: Recent History
Lazio’s win over Udinese and Juventus’ recent 10-point deduction have secured qualification to the Champions League, taking the pressure off Maurizio Sarri and his squad for their final two games of the season.
The Biancocelesti have only won two of their last five outings but still sit second in the Serie A table with 68 points, two ahead of third place Inter.
It’s been a season of highs and lows for Cremonese but now their relegation to Serie B has been confirmed, leaving them with nothing to play for in the final days of the 2022-23 season. The Lombardy outfit have only picked up one win in their last five games and suffered a painful 5-1 loss at home to Bologna last weekend.
The last time these two teams met, Lazio flew to a comfortable 4-0 win over Cremonese.
