Over 2.5 goals at Salernitana vs Lazio 8/11 for Saturday’s Serie A showdown
Competition: Serie A
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
In a matchup that could prove to be another lively affair this weekend, Salernitana will host Lazio on Saturday evening.
Starting with the hosts, despite managing to pick up what was a much-needed victory on their return from the festive break, Salernitana still find themselves tipped as the leading relegation pick. In their 19 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a trio of wins, two draws and 14 defeats, scoring 13 and conceding 43 in return. Mustering just a points tally of 11 and sat rock-bottom of the standings, it should also be noted that Saturday’s hosts hold the worst-defensive record in the division. However, last seen landing a 2-1 victory away at Verona, that result brought an end to Salernitana’s woeful nine-match winless run. Likewise, it’s also worth highlighting, without a clean sheet since the start of October, they have also seen three of their last four Serie A fixtures finish with over 2.5 goals.
As for the visitors, marking their return from Italy’s festive break with a recent blip, Lazio have continued to gain a reputation for their lively outcomes at both ends of the pitch. In their 21 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded nine wins, five draws and seven defeats, scoring 43 and conceding 39 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 32, the Blues open this weekend’s fixtures sat eighth in the standings and with just their goal difference keeping them outside the top-six. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 loss against defending champions Inter Milan on the road, Lazio have managed to win just two of their last six matchups across all formats. Likewise, with each of their last five contests finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
