Fiorentina are now close to within six points of third place after thumping Napoli on a clean sheet via Joaquin’s goal. The side were so keen at advancing way beyond the Europa League that they made it seem very spectacular of narrowing their margin against second placers Roma. The top spot remains a remote possibility but a Champions League seeding is now nearly a reality.

 

Milan’s dropped two points after they only scored a draw with Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on weekend. While the result was not substantial, it was good enough to put a break in their four-match streak of horrendous defeats, which include a three-point deficit in the Champions League. The side, currently ranked at number 12, will have to make some reforms in order to address issues surrounding their mediocre run in the season.

 

Sports betting tip: Fiorentina will obtain all three points.

Genoa vs. Lazio

Match Date: 26 March 2014 (local)

Match Venue: Comunale Luigi Ferraris

 

To this stage of the tournament, Genoa still lack the necessary faculties to put a cure on their inconsistency. While they remain steadfast in aerial duels and creating chances via through balls, they have meagerly improved in such disciplines as avoiding offside, defending set pieces, and veering away from committing errors. It is from these scarcities that they stayed winless for three straight weeks.

 

Lazio’s return to the top six (their highest standing their season) is slowly gaining traction. The side’s relatively impressive form, superb creativity, and knack for creating long shot opportunities have won them enough points to consistently dwell within the league’s safer areas. Currently at number seven, Biancocelesti are only five points away from securing their berth in the Europa League. The task can be very tough in all angles but it is nevertheless possible.

 

Online betting tip: Lazio should celebrate for a 12th league win.
