These two sides find themselves outside of the top six as they chase a return to European football next season and while Fiorentina made a great start to this Serie A campaign, they’ve fallen away after a poor run since the turn of the year.

As for Lazio, they’ve been boosted by a good run - including a victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League - and Maurizio Sarri’s side are chasing another victory here.

Team News

Lazio are close to full strength, with Mattia Zaccagni returning to fitness, however, Mario Gila was sent off in midweek and he will miss this clash.

Fiorentina head into this one with Gatano Castovilli, Dodo, Oliver Christensen, Critiano Biraghi and Christian Kouame all confined to the sidelines.

Lazio to win either half @ 23/20

Lazio have won three of their last four games heading into this contest, including Thursday night’s 2-0 victory over Torino. Their 2-1 home loss to Bologna was a setback, but it did come days after a 1-0 win over Bayern Munich.

Sarri’s side are moving in the right direction in the league and they are within five points of the top five heading into this game. With the success of Italian sides in Europe - helped along by Lazio - the top five sides should all qualify for the Champions League.

So there’s plenty to play for for the Biancocelesti, although Fiorentina should be worried.

The hosts have won just one of their last seven games, suffering four defeats. They’ve tended to be slow starters at home, failing to score in six first halves at home this term. They’ve trailed 1-0 in four of their home games and this is a Lazio side who can take advantage of that.

The visitors have led 1-0 at the break on six occasions on the road this season and conceded first in only seven of their 25 games, while they’ve won the second half outright in three of their last four.

Given that run, look to Lazio to win either half.

Half-Time/Full-Time - Lazio/Lazio @ 9/2

Lazio have won four of the last five encounters between these two sides, including their previous two visits to Fiorentina. With the hosts in a bad way, Lazio can build on their good run and come away with the points in Monday’s encounter.

Given how quickly Lazio tend to start, back them to get in front at half-time and hold on through the second half. They’ve struck the opening goal in nine of their 13 trips this term and that could be enough to see off la Viola, who are low on confidence at the minute.

Back the hosts to be leading at the end of each half.
