Our match prediction:
On Sunday afternoon Lazio Roma will travel towards Florence for the confrontation with Fiorentina in the 19th round of the Italian Serie A. Lazio Roma is performing disappointingly this season and is placed in the middle region of the table. Fiorentina on the other hand is involved in the title race and is known for it's offensive strategy this season alongside Juventus, Inter Milan and Napoli. After the difficult away game against Palermo we predict Fiorentina to keep the 3 points at home against Lazio Roma. Fiorentina is currently in better form. Lazio Roma manager Stefano Pioli should be starting to worry about his position at Lazio; the team needs to show improvement on short term.
