Tip Reasoning

  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 10 of Fiorentina’s last 12 competitive games.
  • Three or more goals have also featured in 10 of Lazio’s last 13 outings.
  • Lazio have Serie A’s third-best attack, scoring 46 goals this campaign. Fiorentina have netted 41, more than all but six Serie A teams.

Prime-time Saturday clash promises goals

Fiorentina may have lost Dusan Vlahovic, after the Serbian striker completed a controversial €75m move to hated rivals Juventus, but all signs point to the goals continuing to flow in Florence. Although Vlahovic’s 17 goals keep him joint-top of Italy’s goalscoring charts (alongside Lazio’s Ciro Immobile), he had only scored three of Fiorentina’s last 14 goals before departing, perhaps signalling that Vincenzo Italiano’s team were lessening their reliance upon him.

Replacement Arthur Cabral managed 27 goals and eight assists in 31 appearances for Basel before his January move, so could be a decent bet to fill that Vlahovic-shaped hole. Fiorentina, meanwhile, will be confident of continuing to entertain; they have netted 41 goals in 22 league games this term, including 29 in 10 home games, the best such record in Serie A.

Saturday’s clash with high-scoring Lazio, then, should be an entertaining affair. Lazio have scored 46 goals and conceded 39 in league action this term, making games featuring Maurizio Sarri’s team the most goal-laden in Italy. Lazio have seen three or more goals scored in 10 of their last 13 games, and, remarkably, in each of their last 13 away matches in all competitions.

Entertainers should serve up three goals

With Fiorentina dealing with the loss of their star striker and Lazio having won just four of 12 away league matches under Sarri, punters are advised to avoid the win markets and back over 2.5 goals to be scored by two teams who only know one away of playing.

These two outfits have scored a combined 87 Serie A goals this season, and that tally should be increased on Saturday night.

For those looking at the correct score markets, Fiorentina have drawn three of their last five league matches, so a pulsating 2-2 draw could prove to be a decent prediction.
