Penalty Kick by Ciro Immobile (Lazio 2 - 0 Sampdoria)

Fox News
Lazio are aiming to follow up last weekend’s derby success by putting together a strong finish to the season. The Aquile now have 11 goals in their last three matches, as they look to build up momentum ahead of the Coppa Italia final. It could come as early as March 17th – should Juventus make the Champions League final – so they have to be ready after the events of midweek.

The Aquile will be happy to host Sampdoria this weekend, a team who are in the middle of a rough patch. Their season has been made up of batches of peaks and dips, suffering two winless runs of seven games this term. The Blucerchiati are on course for a third, having failed to win any of their last four. They’ve now lost eight of their last 17 on the road, which should see them struggle in the capital.

Lazio have won 65% of their home matches this term, while they claimed a 3-1 success as the away side at the Olimpico last weekend. They’ve won eight of their last 11 at home, including four of their last five. Everything points towards a home win, including their price of 2/9 with bet365 to take the points. The only issue for the Aquile is that they’ve conceded in 76% of their home outings in the league.

Sampdoria can take advantage of Lazio’s poor defensive form, having scored in six straight on the road. The Blucerchiati have found the net in 88% of their away trips, scoring away to all of the top three. The only time they’ve failed to score in the past 13 games was at home to Juventus, so we can see Samp finding the net on Sunday.

However, Lazio have won four of the last five meetings between these two. They average 1.88 goals per game at the Stadio Olimpico, which should see them outscore Samp. The visitors have seen both teams score in 71% of their trips, so we’re backing a home win and BTTS at 13/10 with bet365.
