Soccer News – Torino-Lazio
Torino welcomes Lazio at the Olimpico in a game from the 29th round of the Serie A. This match could be important for the title race in Italy, so let’s take a look.
Lazio do not have a room for mistake here if they want to remain in the title race. Right now the Eagles are second in the league, but being 4 points behind the leader Juventus. Lazio can’t do nothing now, but win their games and hope that Juve will make some mistakes.
In the previous round Lazio turned back to winning after a dissapointing loss against Atalanta. Simone Inzaghi’s team hosted Fiorentina and achieved a difficult, but important 2-1 win in the capital. The veteran Franck Ribery opened the score for the visitors, but Lazio won the three points with goals from Ciro Immobile and Luis Alberto. These three points are keeping the club in the title race for now.
For Torino this is a season to forget. The Bulls are 14th in the Serie A standings with 31 points won, so they can’t really be proud with their performance so far. Torino have won just 9 times in 28 matches played so far. Being out of the Top 10 is not something they were expecting before the start of the campaign.
In the previous round Torino lost again. Moreno Longo’s boys visited Cagliari and got bettered for a 2-4 defeat. Bremer and Belotti scored for Torino, but the Rossoblu were clinical and scored four times. It was enough for them to get the three points.
We can make the conclusion that this is an important game for Lazio. The Eagles will try to win here and hope for a some kind of a miracle in the match between Genoa and Juventus. We don’t believe that Juve will make a mistake here, but who knows? This is football after all.
