Lazio vs Cagliari Prediction and Betting Preview 23 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Having been at loggerheads with defending champions Juventus at the business end of the standings earlier in the campaign, Lazio have since fallen off the pace in the race for the league title. A poor run of form since Project Restart succeeded in thwarting the Biancocelesti’s title charge.
Match status: 2019/20 Serie A - Matchweek 35
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
In fact, Lazio are now placed fourth on the standings with a massive 69 points from 34 games. However, despite their drastic drop on the log, the fans can have no complaints about their club’s performances. They are easily one of the best sides in the Serie A this term.

With 69 goals to their name already, Lazio’s attacking frontline is one of the best in Italy and indeed, across Europe. Also, they are faring pretty well at the back, conceding just 36 times – a record bettered only by table toppers Juventus.

Already guaranteed a place in the top-four, the Eagles will be looking to climb further up the standings when they take on stubborn side Cagliari at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday. Expect a thrilling encounter between these two good footballing sides.

Lazio vs Cagliari Team News

Finishing just outside the Europa League places the previous season, a place among the elite top-four mix this time around, is definitely a wonderful achievement for the Biancocelesti. Head coach Simone Inzaghi has been the mastermind behind this outstanding Lazio side.

Looking to close in on Atalanta on the log, Lazio made it a point to frustrate reigning champions Juventus on the last matchday. Playing in unfamiliar territory, the Eagles were always going to struggle against a team of the stature of Juve.

Playing some impressive football in the first-half, Inzaghi’s charges managed to keep scores level. However, Cristiano Ronaldo put Lazio to the sword after the restart, registering two important goals to post a narrow 2-1 win on the board.

Scheduled to take on top-half outfit Sassuolo a few days ago, Cagliari knew they would need to be at their best to stand any chances against De Zerbi’s charges. Nonetheless, the Islanders failed to leave their mark on the game, registering only one shot-on-goal all through.

Interestingly, Cagliari’s only effort found its way into the back of the net, serving as the equalizing goal after Sassuolo’s Caputo had given his side a head-start inside 12 minutes. Ultimately, there were even honors at the Sardegna Arena as the referee brought to game to a close.

For this fixture, Lazio are clear favorites for the win. Asserting their dominance in the Serie A this season, they have etched their name in gold as a force to reckon with. When the squad players are ticking, the Biancocelesti are almost impossible to stop.

However, Lazio have been on a rough patch in recent weeks, struggling to string positive results. This pickle they are in looks pretty hard to deal. But, Inzaghi’s men will be looking to turn a corner soon enough to finish their season on a high.

Meanwhile, Cagliari are in a rut of their own, remaining winless in each of their previous six games on the bounce. Also, they have failed to achieve success in 19 of their previous 21 fixtures across all competitions.
