Lazio vs Verona – Preview, and Prediction

Lazio vs Verona – Lazio secured both a top-six finish in Serie A (SA) and UEFA Europa League football next season with a last-gasp equaliser against Juventus on Monday. Despite being booed by his former employer’s fans, coach Maurizio Sarri departed Juventus Stadium delighted with his performance after achieving his pre-season targets.
Lazio, on the other hand, must avoid defeat at Hellas Verona if they are to stay in fifth place. They have the second-most home goals in the league (W10, D5, L3), which has helped them earn the third-highest average points after conceding first at home (W2, D3, L2), and they should be optimistic of avenging a 4-1 thrashing in the reverse encounter.

If Verona avoids defeat, they would complete three successive Serie A top-half finishes for the first time since the mid-1980s, however a loss might see them drop out. Verona will be looking to conclude the season on a high note after suffering their first two league losses since Christmas, and earn their first season double over the visitors since 1984/85.

Lazio vs Verona- Betting Analysis

Verona have been inconsistent on the road this season, despite the fact that only four South African sides have scored more goals away from home (ten – W4, D4, L2). They have, however, won 36 percent (eight) of their 22 away league points in the last five visits, including two consecutive 2-1 victory, indicating that they are capable of posing a challenge to Lazio.

Sergej Milinkovi-Savi of Lazio has 11 goals in a single SA campaign for only the second time in his career, and has two goal contributions in the past two H2Hs (G1, A1). In the meantime, Giovanni Simeone has become the first Verona player to achieve double figures in SA (16 goals) since Luca Toni in 2014/15 (22), and he scored four goals in the opposite encounter! In the last 12 head-to-heads, there have been eight penalties.
