Live in-play betting – 

Chievo returned home last weekend with all three points and they will be looking to build some early season momentum with another win in this game.

They beat Udinese 1-2 away last weekend and they face a sterner test in this match against Lazio who won the Italian Super Cup a few weeks back.

Chievo were unimpressive against the top teams last season but they managed to get 4 points from their two fixtures against Lazio including a surprising 0-1 win in Rome earlier this year.

Chievo haven’t lost a game at home to Lazio since 2014 and have been unbeaten in 5 of the last 6 meetings against them.

Lazio started the season with an impressive win over Juventus in the Super Cup but found it difficult to beat SPAL at home last weekend and that should be a worry for them.

They almost qualified for the Champions League last season and that should be the minimum target for them this season.

With four automatic Champions League Spots on offer, Simeone Nzaghi will be hoping his boys play as well as they can to book one automatic spot and that requires them to get over their failure to beat new comers SPAL last week and win this game.

Lazio conceded in more than 70% of their matches last season and have kept only one clean sheet in their last 10 Serie A matches.
