Our football match prediction:
Lazio continue where they left in 2017. The Biancocelesti outclassed SPAL 5-2 at the weekend and it is more than obvious that they are determined to secure a top-four finish. The capital club sit in fourth position in the Serie A standings ahead of Matchday 21, but their local rivals Roma are breathing down their neck. Lazio are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. The Mussi Volanti, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Udinese in their last league fixture, with the team extending their winless run in the national championship to six games. Chievo do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment and we do not believe they are going to spoil Lazio’s party at Stadio Olimpico. A man to watch in the home team will be Ciro Immobile, who scored no less than four goals in the 5-2 win over SPAL.
