Lazio vs Torino Preview

Lazio vs Torino

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 11th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Lazio may have come away with a loss in their last game in the Europa League but they are a good side and they need to turn their attention to the Serie A right now as they chase a Champions League spot.

They have started their league campaign well and last week became the first side to win at Sampdoria.

They have gradually developed a reputation for breaking records as they broke Juventus’ unbeaten home run earlier in the season.

Now they have to live up to their reputation and avoid a home loss here.

They are not the strongest team in defence as all but two of their last 11 games have ended with both teams scoring.

Torino will look to exploit Lazio’s defensive lapses in this game with their impressive attackers.

They have scored 1.27 goals per game this season and that figure could go up now that Andrea Belotti has returned from injury and is gradually getting back to form.

They have scored in five of their last six trips to Lazio and their fans will expect them to do the same here as 79% of the home side’s games this season have seen both teams score.
