Lazio have dropped four points in their last two matches – 1-1 at Torino and 2-2 at Cagliari.

With two draws in two fixtures, Manager Maurizio Sarri has plenty to ponder, going into the next game, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With eight points, they currently sit seventh in the League having won two matches, drawn two games, and lost one game.

Playing at home, Lazio have won one game and drawn one game.

Lazio will see 11 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring average of 12 goals (10 from open play and two penalties). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Ciro Immobile (6), Felipe Anderson (1), and Luis Alberto (1). Lazio have conceded seven goals.
