Fiorentina vs. Lazio Tips, Preview and Predictions

Fiorentina vs. Lazio, Serie A

Fiorentina welcome Lazio at Artemio Franchi on Saturday evening in a crucial clash for the top six battle. La Viola had a busy transfer window that saw them lose Dusan Vlahovic and bring in three attacking players, while Lazio had another disappointing mercato that saw them bringing in just one new player on deadline day.

Fiorentina v Lazio Predictions and Preview

Fiorentina have been one of Serie A’s impressive sides in the first half of the season and it’s no surprise that Vincenzo Italiano’s men are in the fight for European places. However, La Viola sold Dusan Vlahovic to Juventus for a total of €81 mln and it remains to be seen if Italiano’s side can continue to impress without their top scorer.

Krzysztof Piatek, Jonathan Ikone and Arthur Cabral were all brough in to replace the Serbian star in what was a busy transfer window for Fiorentina. Lazio, on the other hand, managed to offload some dead wood, but did little else, with their only new signing being Jovane Cabral from Sporting Lisboa. 

Italiano’s men will be looking to get their second victory in their last six games, while Lazio won three of their last five. The hosts will be confident after winning six of their last seven games at Artemio Franchi, but Sarri’s side has done well on the road lately, winning three of their last five clashes on the road.

Fiorentina vs. Lazio full time result odds

This should be a game between two evenly-matched teams, but Dusan Vlahovic’s departure means that Lazio might have the slight edge this time. The Serbian scored more than 40% of Fiorentina’s goals this term, so it remains to be seen if La Viola will be able to make it up after his move to Turin. Lazio won four of the last five meetings between those sides and we are going with a win for Maurizio Sarri’s men at 15/8.

Fiorentina vs. Lazio both teams to score odds

Four of the last six games between those sides have seen both teams score, with a BTTS bet paying out in four of Lazio’s last five games on the road. Fiorentina scored at least one goal in each of their home games this term, so go with BTTS at 4/7 in these Lazio v Fiorentina predictions. 

Fiorentina vs. Lazio correct score odds

Three of the last five games between those teams ended in 2-1 victories for Lazio and a repeat of that result this time is available at 11/1. Maurizio Sarri’s men beat Fiorentina 1-0 in Rome back in October, and have only one defeat in their last 10 games against La Viola, so we are backing up a 2-1 win for the Biancocelesti.

Fiorentina vs. Lazio first goalscorer odds

Ciro Immobile is sharing the top spot in Serie A’s top scorer table with 17 strikes alongside ex-Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic, who joined Juventus in January. The Lazio failed to find the back of the net against Atalanta last time, but netted a brace in the 3-0 win away to Salernitana. Immobile is 16/5 to break the deadlock against La Viola, whikek the odds raise to 49/1 if you pair this with a 2-1 Lazio win.
