Soccer fans across the world very often have one or two leagues that they follow more than the rest. Given the gap between games that we saw during the rise of COVID-19, fans are now setting those biases aside and consuming every single game that is coming their way. A schedule that was barren just a few short weeks ago is now filled to brimming with games from 4 of the top leagues in Europe. The Bundesliga, which was the first to return to play, will see their season come to a close this coming weekend, but there are still plenty of games to come in the English premier League, La Liga, and the Serie A. Let’s get things rolling and have a look at this upcoming matchup so you can make your bets against their Serie A odds.
Fiorentina Vs Lazio Game Preview
In Italy, we are looking at a very tight title race, with Juventus and Lazio slugging it out at the top. It is Lazio who are currently trailing the defending champions, which means that they are under real pressure to continue winning and keep the title race alive. They have a game on Wednesday and will be back on action on Saturday afternoon, when they will host Fiorentina. Lazio are favored by 1, with the goal total for this one set at 3.
Why bet on Lazio
It is never easy to play catch up, especially when chasing a team that seems to win as robotically as Juventus do. You have to give credit to Lazio, though, as they have been on the heels of the defending champions all season long. They are 4 points out of first at the moment, but they also have a game in hand, albeit a very tough one on the road to Atalanta on Wednesday afternoon. They will, once again, have the benefit of knowing where the bar has been set, as Juventus are next set to play on Friday. Lazio already have a win over Fiorentina this season, beating them 2-1 on the road back in October. The good news for Lazio is that they have yet to lose a game at home this season, going 11-3-0, while scoring 39 goals and surrendering just 10.
Why bet on Fiorentina
Fiorentina are not in what you would call a totally comfortable spot at the moment. They are sitting middle of the table, but they are also just 6 points clear of the relegation zone, so this is certainly not a time for them to relax. They have been the masters of the draw since returning to play, going 0-0 and 1-1 in their 2 games thus far, and while they would have hoped for better, they are at least picking up valuable points and staying clear of the relegation battle. They have gone 6 games without a win against Lazio, with their last victory against them coming back in 2017. On the road this season, Fiorentina are 4-4-5, scoring 19 and surrendering 19, so certainly not an easy team to beat.
