Lazio vs Sampdoria
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Lazio will host Sampdoria just three days before meeting the current UEFA Champions League winners Bayern Munich in the first leg of the last 16 round in the elite continental competition.
Despite the congested schedule, Simone Inzaghi should not mix up his starting line-up too much because I Biancocelesti are desperate for points in the battle for the top-four finish and another Champions League adventure next season.
I Biancocelesti dropped down to the 7th position in the Serie A ladder after a 3-1 defeat to new leaders Inter last weekend.
Nevertheless, the fourth-placed Juventus are just two points away and the battle is wide open. The schedule is not idea, though, and a three-pointer against Le Samp would be of a massive significance for the team.
Lazio vs Sampdoria Head-to-head
- Lazio have been the dominant force in this match-up, especially in the games played at Stadio Olimpico.
- I Biancocelesti won 16, drew6, and lost only 1 of the last 23 home clashes against Sampdoria.
- Lazio were on a three-win streak in this H2H tie before losing 3-0 to Le Samp in this term of Serie A.
- Three or more goals were scored in all of the last ten head to head affairs between the two outfits.
Lazio vs Sampdoria Prediction
Le Samp kept their place in the top half of the standings (10th position) thanks to a narrow 2-1 victory over Fiorentina last weekend.
Claudio Ranieri’s pair of strikers has been great lately. Keita Balde and Fabio Quagliarella were both on target in the aforementioned victory six days ago. They could cause problems to Lazio’s defensive line that has kept just one clean sheet in the last six outings across competitions.
We just have to see goals here looking at both teams’ form and the head to head record. Each of their last 10 H2H meetings have produced at least three goals and there are no reasons for us to expect a different scenario this time around.
The Over 2.5 goals bet is a banker at the 1.66 odds. We will also back Lazio to win & Both Teams To Score at 3.20.
