Lazio have assured their place in the Europa League for next season, and will be looking for a third win in four league fixtures to end the campaign above their cross-city rivals.
Serie A Preview
Lazio have done an excellent job at salvaging their season over the final months of the season, as it looked unlikely that they would achieve a European finish this season. However, the Italian giants look on course to finish above their local rivals Roma this term, and victory on the final day will ensure that.
Lazio have lost just once in their last five league fixtures, and have picked up two wins in their previous three games. They are sitting three points clear of Roma coming into the final day, and also boast a superior goal difference. Lazio have been effective at the top end of the pitch throughout the season, as only Inter Milan has scored more goals.
Lazio played out a very entertaining game in their previous fixture, as they drew 2-2 against Juventus. A point was salvaged with virtually the last kick of the game, as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic scored in the 96th minute.
Hellas Verona will be pleased with their 2021-22 Serie A campaign, as they look set to finish in the top half of the standings. Verona come into the final weekend sitting ninth in the league standings, and will need just a point to ensure that they end the season in the top ten.
Their form has taken a bit of a hit over recent weeks, as they have lost each of their last two games in Serie A. The first of those defeats ended a three-game unbeaten run. Verona’s latest defeat was a 1-0 loss at home against Torino, and they will be looking for a much better performance this weekend.
Lazio vs Hellas Verona Head to Head
Verona has won two of the previous three fixtures that they have played against Lazio. That includes a huge 4-1 win that they recorded in the reverse fixture this season back in October. They also won this fixture 2-1 last season.
Lazio vs Hellas Verona Prediction
It has been an excellent end to the season for Lazio, and they appear difficult to oppose on the final weekend of the season as they look to finish above their local rivals. We expect the hosts to get the win that they need to finish above Roma.
