THE TEAM NEWS

LAZIO

  • Lazio’s poor form continued as they were beaten by Juventus on Monday and they have now failed to win any of their last five matches following that loss, with four of those games ending in defeat.
  • Lazio were second best throughout the first half but managed to keep Juve from scoring, although that was not the case for long in the second half as the home side notched twice inside the opening 10 minutes.
  • Ciro Immobile pulled one back from the spot with seven minutes left but it was not enough as Lazio failed to get back on level terms and there are doubts regarding the fitness of Luis Alberto and Jony who both sat out the Juve match.

CAGLIARI

  • Cagliari failed to win once again as they drew with Sassuolo at the weekend but they will be content with their efforts in that game after they claimed a point despite playing almost a full half with just 10 men against the in-form side.
  • Cagliari fell behind inside the opening 15 minutes and their task to get back into the game was made even trickier when Andrea Carboni was given his marching orders just three minutes into the second half.
  • Despite that setback, Cagliari were able to level through Joao Pedro and they held on to claim a solid point but they will now be without the suspended Carboni for this contest while Luca Pellegrini and Christian Olivia remain injury doubts.

THE PREDICTION

Lazio and Cagliari are both out of form heading into this clash and the pair will be desperate to pick up the three points. Lazio are without a win in five while it is six matches for Cagliari, although the visitors did show some real character to earn a point against Sassuolo at the weekend. Cagliari have managed just one goal in their last five games and with Lazio also short of goals with three in their last five, this one could be a low-scoring affair.
