The number nine stage from Serie A will end tonight on Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi from Verona, where Hellas Verona receive the visit of Lazio. This announces to be a match opened for any results.
Verona have started pretty good this new season, but lately they have lost their rhythm and they have only registered a single victory in the last five stages. They have fallen down to the 10th place and they need a victory today. They no longer impress on the offensive phase as the did last season and now have a goal average of little over one per match, They lack in the defensive line, this being the main problems for the coach Mandorlini. He declared himself satisfied with the performance lately had and we expect some changes to the starting 11. Martic is favorite to start on the left side, Ionita will take a seat on the bench and in the attack we will see Nico Lopez. Verona have a pretty good performance on their own pitch, the only lost game being the one against AC Milan (1-3). Today there are also a few player’s lot problems, Marques, Obbadi, Sala and G. Rodriguez being injured.
Lazio have had a wonderful progress lately and now are sat in the 5th place in Serie A, before their opponents. They come after four consecutive victories and will certainly want to win all the three points today. Stefano Pioli gathered a nice team at Roma, who practice a spectacular match, based on dominance and attack, the club’s bold wishes being somehow justified. Lazi have one of the best attacks on from the championship, with 15 scored goals, a sector in which Filip Djordjevic shines, with five scored goals in the last four stages. At the press conference the coach, Pioli asked his players to focus, declaring that only in this way can the positive series continue. As absentees, we have Gentiletti, Basta, Keita and Cataldi, all being injured.

Our tip suggestions
Under 1.5 goals in the first half
We bet on a balanced match today, between two teams that will mostly try not to lose. Even if Lazio impressed in this season on the offensive line, in away matches they have adopted a defensive tactic, trying to speculate the counterattack. This thing will also happen today, because they fear the attack force of the hosts. Still, Verona are not the spectacular team from last year and this season they are more concerned with their defense. They have a goal average of less than a goal scored per match and certainly they won’t throw themselves into the attack, because they can be unpleasantly surprised. We anticipate an interesting match at the middle of the team, with two cautious teams in the first round.
