Lazio are going through a relatively strong phase when it comes to their league placements.
They’ve generally been hovering among between 5th and 8th throughout the decade, but a rocky start to the 2018/19 season prevented them from going on to the Europa League. Still, 2019/20 ended with the best results in the last five campaigns. They earned a comfortable 4th place and a quick road to the Champions League qualifying round.
So, for Serie A betting, how likely are The Eagles to repeat last year’s success? Not very, according to some of the world’s top bookmakers. At 4.50 odds for a Top 4 Finish outright bet, the bookies rank Lazio 7th in Italy’s top flight. As it stands, a place in the 5 to 8 range seems most plausible.
Lazio Key Players
Simone Inzaghi had a lot of time to become familiar with the squad as acting manager over the past 5 seasons. He spent 10 years in the White and Sky Blue kit himself, which makes him a favourite among the club’s supporters. With a 55% win rate, it seems the fan’s confidence wasn’t misplaced.
His tactical approach relies on a powerful midfield with some of the team’s strongest players. These include Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Luis Alberto, Lucas Leiva, and Manuel Lazzari. However, the cherry on top of this high-pressure pie is the experienced forward Ciro Immobile and his 4 titles as Serie a’s top goalscorer, the latest of which has been achieved last season.
Still, Milinkovic-Savic and Alberto are perhaps the biggest playmakers there, and most of Lazio's quick-paced buildups revolve around getting them on the ball as soon as possible. Most of the core squad remains intact, though Andreas Pereira will offer some further options in the midfield on loan from Man United. Vedat Muriqi is another recent addition, though Immobile will likely remain the main forward.
Without a single doubt, Lazio’s biggest rivals are Roma. The two clubs have been vying fierce battles throughout respective histories, fighting for supremacy in the Italian capital. Their matches are considered among the fiercest around the globe. During the 1979/80 season, a Lazio fan Vincenzo Paparelli lost his life after being hit in the eye by an emergency rocket thrown by a rival Roma fan.
The animosity was further fuelled by a minority of Lazio’s ultras who have traditionally been connected with fascism and racist inclinations. Black Roma players have often been a particular target during the Derby della Capitale.
In terms of other rivalries, the Biancocelesti have a particularly fiery relationship with a couple of other Italian football clubs such as Milan, Fiorentina and Juventus but also Napoli, Livorno and Pescara.
Founded in 1900 as the Societa Podistica, the original Lazio played as an amateur side for a decade. Well known for their light-blue shirts, Lazio are two-time Serie A winners and proud owners of seven Coppa Italia titles. The blue club from the capital also lifted the Supercoppa Italiana on four different occasions. In terms of European success, Lazio won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1998/99 and consequently lifted the UEFA Super Cup as well.
Lazio play their games at the Stadio Olimpico, which is a shared home with their hated rivals, Roma. The Biancocelesti are said to be the sixth-most supported football club in the country. However, they come second in Rome, which is actually the position they are most interested in changing.
