Soccer News – Fiorentina – Lazio
Fiorentina hosts Lazio at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in one of the most intriguing Serie A games from the 9th round. Who’s going to enjoy a win here? Let’s think about it right now.
Fiorentina are 9th in the Serie A standings right now with 12 points won, but they are also unbeaten in their last five matches in the league, which should tell you something about their form. In these five games La Viola won three times and made two draws.
During the weekend Enzo Montella’s boys visited the newcomer Brescia at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti, sharing the points with their opponents. In this game Montella put Federico Chiesa and Franck Ribery in attack, while Duan Vlahovic and Kevin-Prince Boateng entered the pitch after the break. Nothing changed, though, because Brescia still didn’t concede.
It’d be interesting to see what Vincenzo Montella is going to decide about that game against Lazio on Sunday. He could start again with Chiesa and Ribery, but Vlahovic and Boateng are also options in attack.
Lazio are currently 7th in the Serie A standings with 12 points won until now. Since their loss against Inter MIlan at the San Siro, the Eagles are unbeaten – one win and two draws. But in same time they are still four points behind the fourth Napoli and the Champions League zone, so they have some work to do.
In the previous round Lazio hosted Atalanta at the Olimpico and did some heroic things. Inzaghi’s boys were 0-3 down against La Dea, so everyone thought they are going to lose the game. But in the last 20 minutes Lazio scored three goals, securing themselves a point. Ciro Immobile scored twice from a penalty kick, while Joaquin Correa added one more for the hosts.
Everything could happen in this Serie A derby between Fiorentina and Lazio on Sunday. The hosts are unbeaten in five games already, but Lazio scored three goals in their last match.
