Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Empoli and Udinese, Lazio shared the spoils with the likes of Bologna and Torino in previous two league fixtures. The Biancocelesti sit in sixth position in the Serie A standings ahead of Wednesday’s football match and they are regarded as favourites to beat Cagliari on Matchday 10. Lazio scored 2+ goals in three of their last four league matches and the capital club are widely expected to adopt an attack-minded approach against the Rossoblu. Fiorentina put an end to Cagliari’s three-game winning run in the national championship at the weekend and it has to be noted that the team experienced all sorts of problems in the 5-3 loss to the Viola. The Rossoblu tend to struggle on the road and we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed. It has to be noted that Lazio are eyeing their fifth consecutive win over Cagliari.
