These Lazio vs. Verona predictions look ahead to the final day of the Serie A campaign, as Maurizio Sarri’s Biancocelesti host the Mastini at the Stadio Olimpico. Lazio have already sealed a Europa League spot prior to this fixture, while Verona are safely over the line in mid-table.
Lazio vs. Verona odds
1 – Lazio to win – 8/11
2 – Over 2.5 total goals – 11/18
3 – Lazio over 1.5 total goals – 3/5
4 – BTTS – Yes – 4/8
5 – Lazio to win 2-1 – 8/1
Lazio go into the last game of the 2021-22 Serie A season with their Europa League place already wrapped up. Sarri’s side enter this tie with Verona in fifth place in the table with 63 points, ahead of city rivals Roma, who are on 60 points in sixth.
Jose Mourinho’s side head to Torino in Friday night action and a win will put pressure on Lazio against Verona 24 hours later. A better head-to-head record means Roma could overhaul their local rivals if they win and Lazio lose, but the Aquile cannot slip any lower than sixth, guaranteeing them a spot in next season’s Europa League.
However, despite the pressure being eased on the home side, they will be confident of rounding off the campaign with three points. The Biancocelesti have four league wins from their last seven games, as they come up against a Verona side who have lost successive games.
Sarri’s side have also impressed in front of goal so far this month, with three of their last four games involving over 2.5 total goals scored inside 90 minutes of action. They’ve scored two or more themselves in their last three league outings.
Lazio’s form in attack is not mirrored by defensive solidity in recent weeks though, and this will give Verona a chance to at least get themselves on the scoresheet in the Italian capital. The Aquile have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight league games and Verona have scored at least once in four of their last five.
Sarri will want to end the season on a high in front of the Lazio fans this weekend and with their Europa League place already sealed, the only remaining battle in 2021-22 is to finish above fierce rivals Roma in Serie A.
