      Lazio vs Carpi Predictions

      After an extremely promising 2014/15 season, the first part of 2015/16 hasn’t been quite so good. They’re currently in 10th place, they didn’t manage to win a game in November and they’re already 10 points off the pace for a second consecutive season in European football.

      However, they did show some signs of life before the break picking up an almost unbelievable 2-1 away win against league leaders Inter Milan. It was especially impressive considering just how effective Roberto Mancini’s team has been defensively all season long.

      They begin the 2016 portion of the season against relegation battlers Carpi. December was a pretty good month for Carpi overall, though they are still second from bottom in the table and generally in serious trouble. They drew at home against AC Milan, beat Fiorentina to advance to the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia and put up a pretty good fight against the hottest team in the Serie A in Juventus.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Carpi fight

      There’s been an element of scrappiness about Carpi all season long, especially against teams that play an open brand of football like Lazio. They’re not afraid to have a go themselves and there’s just something about the way in which they play where they’re able to stick in games.

      2. Erratic Lazio

      Maybe the win against Inter Milan was a sign of things to come, but until that’s proven, the smart money is that even a win in this game is likely to be reliant upon scrapping more than anything else.

      3. Winter break rust

      For both of these sides and for many of the games, we’ll guess that there’s an element of rust as a factor. Don’t expect a crisp cutting performance from Lazio.
