Latest performances in all competitions
Lazio will host Salernitana at the Stadio Olimpico as they search for their third straight win in all competitions.
I Biancocelesti come into this game riding on the wave of an eight-game unbeaten run in all competitions. Their recent outing in the Europa League saw them claim a 2-1 over the Danish side, with goals from Milinkovic-Savic and Pedro Ledesma sending Lazio into first place in Group F. But they are level on points with Sturm Graz with one round of football left to play.
Lazio also secured an impressive 0-2 win over fellow title contenders Atalanta in their last outing in the Italian Serie A. Goals from Mattia Zaccagni and Felipe Anderson on either side of the half, secured what was a statement win for Maurizio Sarri’s team.
Maurizio Sarri and his team are in the mix of a historic four-way title race with Napoli leading the race at the top with only three points separating them from second-placed AC Milan. Lazio currently sit in third place, two points below the champions and level on points with Atalanta in fourth place.
The Italian coach will therefore urge his side to maintain their place at the top by taking all three points against Salernitana as they look to cut the gap on the league leaders.
Possible Lazio starting line-up
Ivan Provedel; Elseid Hysaj, Alessio Romagnoli, Nicolò Casale, Adam Marusic; Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Danilo Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Pedro, Mattia Zaccagni.
Injured: Ciro Immobile
Salernitana will be on the hunt for their second consecutive win in the Serie A after picking up all three points against Spezia last weekend.
Pasquale Mazzocchi scored the only goal of the game immediately after the break to send the Stadio Arechi into a wild celebration.
Davide Nicola’s side come into this game in eleventh place in the Serie A standings, and look set to improve on their 17th-place finish last season with the Italian coach at the helm.
Salernitana have now picked up three crucial wins in Serie A after eleven rounds of football and will be keen to add to their tally as they continue their march up the Serie A table. However, I Granata come up against an in-form Lazio side who have been devastatingly effective in front of goal this season.
Davide Nicola will therefore be counting on his boys to play a perfect game at the Stadio Olimpico to stun their more fancied opponents.
Possible Salernitana starting line-up
Luigi Sepe; Norbert Gyomber, Flavius Daniluc, Matteo Lovato; Antonio Candreva, Lassana Coulibaly, Giulio Maggiore, Tonny Vilhena, Pasquale Mazzocchi; Krzystof Piatek, Federico Bonazzoli.
Injured: Giulio Maggiore
