Sunday Serie A action from Stadio Giovanni Zini, as USC take on Lazio.

Lazio (seventh), travel to Stadio Giovanni Zini with high expectations, as they take on eighteenth placed USC.

Cremonese require a positive result, as Lazio go to Stadio Giovanni Zini

USC have suffered at the hands of Atalanta and Sassuolo in their previous two matches, with two successive draws. They go into this game with the hope of taking all three points.

Also, with two draws in two games, Manager Massimiliano Alvini has plenty to ponder, going into the next game, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. Their position is eighteenth in the League and they have two points, that is, 0W, 4L and 2D having drawn two meetings and lost four matches.

When USC host Lazio, they will do so on the back of one draw and one losse on their own ground.

A win in this fixture, would take Cremonese’s points from 2 to 5, so far this season.

USC are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Massimiliano Alvini is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without four of his key players.

Lazio have so far accrued 11 points in this season of the Serie A

Lazio come to this game on the back of a victory, having beaten Hellas Verona 2-0 at Stadio Olimpico.

Also, Lazio keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last six fixtures is astonishing this season. With 11 points, they currently sit seventh in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 3 wins, 1 losses and 2 draws having won three meetings, drawn two matches, and lost one game.

Lazio will travel to USC with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with two darts.

A victory for Lazio would put them on 14 points.

Good atacking and defensive team

Lazio have managed to maintain a strong defence so far, having only conceded five goals in their previous fixtures. Lazio have a good scoring record this season, with nine netted so far. This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Ciro Immobile (3), Luis Alberto (2), and Felipe Anderson (1).

Lazio may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Cremonese v Lazio – Head-to-Head.

Regarding their historical duels the recent form between these two sides has seen Lazio with a greater number of wins. In the last seven meetings, they have enjoyed four victories, to USC’s two wins. Also, Lazio have left USC with a win on four out of seven matches. January 2020 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and Cremonese took all three points winning 4-0.
