Serie A Betting: Lazio to Hold out-of-form Napoli in Rome


Expect a low-scoring game between Fiorentina and Verona, and a draw between Lazio and Napoli, says Paolo Bandini...

Mario Gomez took to Facebook this week to reassure Fiorentina’s fans that his rehabilitation from knee surgery was going according to schedule. The striker was reported almost two weeks ago to be nearing a return, but has since experienced fresh problems with tendinitis that have set back his recovery. Without him, their team is over-reliant on Giuseppe Rossi for goals. Verona, likewise, lean too heavily on Luca Toni. The unders are tempting at a generous 2.16.

 

Lazio 3.00, the draw 3.20, Napoli 2.35

Lazio overcame a significant mental hurdle on Thursday night, recording their first away win of the season as they beat Legia Warsaw 2-0. Now they return home for a tilt at a Napoli team that has lost three consecutive games in all competitions. The Partenopei seem to be going through a minor crisis of confidence, and are once again expected to be without Marek Hamsik.  Napoli have also not beaten Lazio in Rome since 2008. I like the draw.
