Lazio host Fiorentina in the Serie A on Wednesday hoping to get back to winning ways after suffering a 4-1 defeat to Hellas Verona last time out.

Lazio are currently in 8th place with 14 points, one behind Fiorentina who are a place above them on the table.

Maurizio Sarri’s side have been inconsistent of late, having won only two of their last five games across all competitions.

Similarly, their form in the Europa League has not yet shown any tell-tale signs of consistency, as the Eagles have drawn, lost and won in their three group stage games so far.

Fiorentina have not kept a clean sheet against Lazio in their past 16 encounters, meaning they are going to have to extend the record of scoring in all but one of their Serie A matches this season.
