Prediction Monza – Lazio
Monza are currently 13th in the table and have won one of their last five league games. They are four points behind eighth-placed Udinese and they have to be applauded because they have worked well this season.
They didn’t hesitate to spend money after promotion, signing players like Matteo Pessina and Stefano Sensi. Their ambitions became headline news when they were linked with Paulo Dybala and Mauro Icardi, with Serie A fans fully aware of Silvio Berlusconi’s personality.
On the other hand, Lazio is second in the league standings, 19 points behind leaders Napoli. Manager Maurizio Sarri endured maligned spells with Chelsea and Juventus before moving to Lazio, and the 64-year-old appears to have found a club where he will once again thrive.
While dethroning Napoli is almost impossible, qualifying for the Champions League would be a huge achievement for the club as it could potentially help them retain the services of stars like Sergej Milinković-Savic. Lazio have done well this season despite the limited impact of star striker Ciro Immobile, who has scored, by his usual lofty standards, just nine goals this season in 18 games.
Lazio are in good form and should win here.
Prediction: Monza 0-1 Lazio
