Monza Form Guide: Recent Results & Table Position

For the second season in a row, Monza find themselves in a warm mid-table spot. They currently sit 11th in the table with 44 points. While they were threatening to launch a serious challenge for a European berth earlier, their recent results thwarted their ambitions. The Biancorossi are without a win in their last five fixtures where they only managed to collect two points out of a possible 15.

In their most recent outing, they managed to escape with a draw from the Via del Mare against Lecce thanks to a last-gasp spot-kick. So with European spots no longer in their range, Raffaele Palladino might struggle to motivate his players during the final stretch.

Lazio Form Guide: Recent Results & Table Position

While Monza have very little to play for, Lazio are still determined to secure the highest position possible in the table. The club currently sits 7th with 55 points, and the dream remains to secure fifth place which would guarantee Champions League football, but a Europa League qualification wouldn’t be a major disappointment considering what the club endured this season.

Luckily for the Biancocelesti, they have managed to hit their stride at the right time, as they’re currently riding a three-match winning streak. So after prevailing over Salernitana, Genoa and Hellas Verona, many would back Lazio to add Monza to their hit list and pile more pressure on fifth-placed Roma who will host Juventus on Sunday night.
