Fiorentina vs Lazio: Visitors can continue hot streak

Kick Off: 1700, 13/05/2017

Stadium: Artemio Franchi

TV: BT Sport 1

Lazio have won five of their last six encounters with Fiorentina and look in good shape to further enhance that impressive record when they meet in Serie A on Saturday.

Simone Inzaghi’s side are coming off scoring a whopping 16 goals in a hat-trick of victories and appear set to finish in the top four for the second time in three years.

All the momentum is with the visitors here and they get the nod at 9/5 in our Fiorentina vs Lazio betting tips.

A Look At Fiorentina’s Betting Odds

Fiorentina were also involved in a high-scoring encounter when last in action at Artemio Franchi, surviving a late fightback from Inter to prevail 5-4.

Since then, however, they have gone down 2-0 at second-from-bottom Palermo and drawn 2-2 on the road against 14th-placed Sassuolo, with a player sent off on both occasions.

There is still the attacking talent in this team to cause problems if back on top form, but with a place in Europe next season now long gone, how motivated they will be is open to debate.

Looking at the Fiorentina vs Lazio odds, we like 13/4 for an away win and both teams to score.

A Look At Lazio’s Betting Odds

Lazio have been on fire of late, crushing Palermo 6-2 at home, prevailing 3-1 in the Rome derby and then putting a magnificent seven past Sampdoria last Sunday.

Italy striker Ciro Immobile is now sixth in the Serie A scoring charts with 22, while young Senegal forward Keita Balde Diao also features in the top 10 on 14.

That impressive pairing have the pace and ability to expose any lack of focus in the Fiorentina defence if they go chasing victory.

Inzaghi, who has been linked with moves to Fiorentina and West Ham, is clearly building something special at Lazio and we like 10/1 for the capital city outfit to claim a 2-1 triumph.
