Lazio hosts Hellas Verona
Looking to overtake Inter Milan at the second place in the Serie A, moving on just two points behind the leader Juventus, Lazio hosts Hellas Verona at the Olimpico in a postponed game from the 17th week. Let’s take a look at it in our football tips tonight.
After Lazio’s run of 11 consecutive wins in the Serie A was stopped with a draw against Roma, the Eagles once again started winning. This happened in the previous round of the league when Simone Inzaghi’s team hosted SPAL and crushed them with 5-1 at the Olimpico. Ciro Immobile and Felipe Caicedo scored braces for the hosts, while Bobby Adekanye also put the ball behind the goalkeeper Etrit Berisha.
Just like we said in the beginning, a win would take Lazio ahead of Inter Milan and very close to the leader Juventus. This would mean that Lazio will state themselves as a real contender for the title this season – they would be just two points behind the leader.
How are Hellas Verona doing before this trip to the capital?
They are doing pretty well, because Verona are currently 9th in the league with 30 points, which is more than positive performance for them. What’s really impressive is that Hellas Verona are unbeaten in their last five fixtures in the Serie A. The team’s manager Ivan Juric deserves huge compliments because of the way his players do so far.
During the weekend Hellas Verona once again did well when they visited Milan at the San Siro. The team won a point after a 1-1 draw. It was Davide Faraoni who opened the score for Verona, but the Rossoneri equalised before the halftime break.
That’s our football tips tonight for the Serie A game between Lazio and Hellas Verona at the Olimpico. The obvious thing to say here is that Lazio are favourites to win, but have it in mind that Hellas Verona are in a long run without any losses conceded. There must be a reason for that.
