Saturday Sure Football odds

It’s easy to forget Lazio were genuine title challengers last season before the COVID-19 pandemic halted play – they returned and finished fourth, five points off eventual champions Juventus. We’ll never know what might have happened if play continued through March and beyond, rather than a disruptive four-month hiatus.

As Milan have already shown, Simone Inzaghi’s men can be title rivals but must remain consistent and beat winnable opposition. They folded under pressure against a clinical Udinese side on November 29, who sat 16th on seven points from their opening eight games before that encounter.No wonder they gleefully took advantage – Lazio missed chances, outpassed them but left empty-handed. Dropping points against Sampdoria and others, as well as a patchy UCL campaign, means Saturday’s hosts aren’t in the best possible form. That can all change though.Ciro Immobile continues to lead the line with distinction, Joaquin Correa and Luis Alberto aren’t far behind in the final third. How will the Verona backline deal with that?

They’ve only kept one clean sheet in their last seven matches (all comps) and were held to a 1-1 draw with mid-table Cagliari last time out. Watch out for Inter’s teenage loanee Eddie Salcedo, after his purposeful cameo last weekend.
