Spal vs Lazio (By: Saconex)
Italy Serie A
SPAL (16) vs Lazio (5)
SPAL are coming from 2 straight victories, 2-1 vs Roma (7) & 0-1 vs Frosinone (19). That gives them a gap of 4 points down to Empoli (18) & the relegation zone so they are probably ready to fight hard for their place, as they did last season. This one will probably be a hard test though, taking in mind how sharp the guests looks atm. No missings reported for SPAL.
Lazio looks solid I have to say. They are coming from winning 0-1 vs Internazionale (3) & crushing Parma (11) by 4-1 at home before that. So as it stands they are a serious contender for a CL spot, but matches like this, against bottom teams have to end with 3 points. 3 points tonight will continue the pressure on their CL rivals, before Lazio are visiting Milan 13 April. Radu & Correa both reported doubtful. Lukaku will be missed.
* Lazio crushed SPAL by 4-1 in the reverse fixture back in November
* This match ended with a 2-5 Lazio win last season
Anything else than 3 points will be a big disappointment for Lazio here. They are in great form and knows how important 3 points in a match like this will be in the fight to reach Europe (CL). SPAL won their last home match vs Roma, so this isnt a walkover at all. But when that being said, they will probably be under pressure and Lazio doesn’t normally have any problems in taking this team down. I expect the guests to win, hopefully with 2+ goals, and continue to put pressure on Milan & Internazionale.
