Lazio needs to pick themselves up from Thursday Europa League defeat and keep their focus on a Champions League spot for next season. Though they already qualified for the round of 32 in Europa League, but for now their attention needs to shift towards the title pursuit. It is a difficult fixture for them on Monday as they host Torino, a side who are aiming to get themselves a European spot next season.
Lazio will come fresh off a victory last weekend which seem to have clouded their shaky stretch of form. They are the first side to claim victory at Sampdoria after AC Milan and Juventus fell to defeats there.
They have been breaking records this season, they ended Juve’s home unbeaten run earlier this season. Now they have to keep up not to slip off from the top battle.
The Aquila have some defensive issues as they have conceded in their last 5 games and same has happened in 9 out of their last 11 games.
Torino can take advantage of Lazio’s defensive issues as they a very impressive attack. They have an average of 1.27 goals per game and they can do better than that once Belotti hits form after returning from injury.
Lazio have kept just 2 clean sheets at home in Serie A since March this year. Looking at their conceding rate, we expect Torino to score in this game. This makes both teams to score a better bet option while we expect Lazio to win after their victory at Sampdoria last week.
