Serie A strugglers Frosinone will be looking to claim just their third league win of the season against a Lazio side keen to return to winning ways in the league.

The hosts currently lie in 19th place in Serie A but last week saw them grab a rare win, hammering ten-man Bologna 4-0, moving them within four points of safety.

Frosinone do have the worst home record in the division though and they will be looking to improve on the measly five points they’ve picked up at the Stadio Benito Stirpe this season.

Visitors Lazio will be coming into the clash full of confidence following their Coppa Italia win against Inter Milan via penalties.

However, last time out in the league, Lazio were ever so close to ending Juventus’ unbeaten campaign in Serie A. Simone Inzaghi’s side were 1-0 up until the 74th minute when Joao Cancelo levelled the encounter. A last-minute Cristiano Ronaldo penalty sunk Lazio hearts as Juventus ran out 2-1 winners.

Lazio sit in 8th spot in Serie A, three points off fourth-placed AC Milan, and they will view this game as the perfect chance to apply pressure on the teams above them.

Team News

The hosts will be without a number of players with Nicolo Brighenti, Francesco Zampano, Federico Dionisi, Lorenzo Ariaudo all injured and Francesco Cassata will be out due to a suspension.

The Biancocelesti will have to make do without Luiz Felipe while Millinkovic-Savic will be out with a suspension. Francesco Acerbi will be back in contention after he served his suspension.

Potential Frosinone Starting XI: Sportiello, Capuano, Salamon, Goldaniga, Ghiglione, Valzania, Maiello, Chibsah, Beghetto, Pinamonti, Ciano

Potential Lazio Starting XI: Strakosha, Wallace, Acerbi, Radu, Marusic, Leiva, Parolo, Lulic, Correa, Alberto, Immobile

  • Frosinone haven’t scored a goal in any of their three meetings with Lazio.

Key Stats & Facts

  • Frosinone have the worst home record in the division, failing to win any of their ten home games and only scoring six goals in the process.
  • Frosinone haven’t won back-to-back games since their promotion last season.
  • Lazio haven’t lost to any of the bottom three this season, winning two and drawing one.

Betting Odds

  • Frosinone 8/1
  • Draw 79/20
  • Lazio 4/9

The Verdict

Despite the hosts impressively beating relegation rivals Bologna 4-0 last week, they relied heavily on their opponents having a man sent off and they are likely going to need the same good fortune to occur if they want to get anything out of this encounter.

Lazio will be looking to build momentum in this second-half of the season and following their win against Inter Milan, they will be looking to launch an assault on the top four and in order to do this, they need to be beating the bottom sides convincingly.

Ciro Immobile has been impressive for Inzaghi’s side this season and he will be looking to add to his tally of 11 goals against the leagues leakiest defence.

With the hosts conceding the joint most amount of goals at home in the league, Lazio will view this as an opportunity to put their opponents to the sword.
