Fiorentina vs Lazio predictions and betting tips for this Sunday’s Serie A clash on March 10th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
Fiorentina’s young side have been hugely entertaining to follow this season, and although they’ve probably dropped too many points at the Artemi Franchi, they are incredibly tough to beat in front of their own fans. Lazio will have their work cut out, but they’re fresh from their success in the Rome derby, and will fancy their chances of taking something back from Florence. See our Fiorentina vs Lazio predictions below.
Fiorentina sit in tenth and realistically can’t climb into the European spots. Their hopes of making those much-coveted positions in Serie A disappeared as they were thumped 3-1 by Atalanta last weekend. However, they are still in the Coppa Italia, so all hope is not lost. Stefano Pioli’s side have been really entertaining to watch, but their defence has let them down on a number of occasions in recent weeks, and they’ll need to keep things tight here. They haven’t won at home since December 16th, although they have faced Napoli, Sampdoria and Inter during that period, so it isn’t perhaps as alarming as it sounds. Although they are a tempting price in this tie, they have only won twice in 2019, against SPAL and Chievo, but needed late goals in each of those games to secure all three points. Lazio were very impressive last weekend against Roma, and they’re playing with plenty of confidence at the moment. Their away form is a little patchy, with just two wins on the road since October 21st, and they may have to do without Ciro Immobile once again. The striker came off the bench at the weekend, but he still isn’t match-fit, and may not start this fixture. There are always goals between these two sides, and there’s not always a lot between them. A draw looks like a realistic outcome here and it’s the first of our Serie A predictions for Sunday evening.
The games at Stadio Olimpico aren’t as entertaining as the matches at the Artemi Franchi and we’re expecting another high-scoring 90 minutes here. There have been 12 goals in the last two meetings between these sides, and although we aren’t expecting another seven-goal thriller here, Over 2.5 Goals should land in this clash. Fiorentina were caught out on several occasions in Bergamo, and there have been an average of 3.08 goals per game in their home matches this season. Three of their last five home games in all competitions have ended 3-3, and only Napoli have prevented them from getting on the scoresheet in recent weeks. Lazio aren’t as goal-crazy, but they always provide a threat, and they could be dragged into a high-scoring affair here. They’ve only kept four clean sheets on the road, and they all came against sides in the bottom half. Over 2.5 Goals is the second of our Fiorentina vs Lazio betting tips for this clash.
Luis Muriel is amongst the favourites in the anytime goalscorer market, and the on-loan 27-year old has netted ten goals for the campaign. He’s been in decent form in recent weeks, and has now netted in each of his last three appearances. He’s netted in six of nine since arriving in Italy, and he could continue his fine run of form here. Luis Muriel to Score Anytime is the third of our Serie A betting tips.
Lazio sit five points above their opponents, and they have been priced up as the favourites for this contest. They can be backed at 31/20 and will be fancied by many punters. Fiorentina don’t lose many games at home however, and they are available at 9/5 to take all three points, and get back to winning ways. The draw is available at 23/10.
Over 2.5 Goals is attractively priced at 4/5 for this game, and it looks a hugely tempting proposition. Anyone who fancies these two sides to keep it tight, can back Under 2.5 Goals at Evens.
We don’t know how many minutes Ciro Immobile will play, but if he does feature, he’s likely to find the net. He can be backed at 15/4 to score the first goal in this game and is narrowly ahead of Luis Muriel. The Sevilla loanee can be backed at 11/2. Giovanni Simeone has enjoyed a fantastic campaign and is 13/2 to break the deadlock in this tie.
