S.S. Lazio pursues top four

S.S. Lazio is looking to continue their pursuit for a top four finish when they go against U.C. Sampdoria. Additionally, Lazio is also a team who progressed in Europe, where they can gain confidence from. Sampdoria is a struggling team, with almost no chances of getting on the next round. They have yet to win a match this year, which is why they are hungry for wins in their matches. These two teams will have a clash on February 28, 2023, at 3:45 AM (GMT+8), with Lazio as hosts.

During the last 40 meeting these two teams played, it was the hosts who has the advantage. The hosts already claimed 23 wins from their last 40 matches, while the visitors only have eight wins. Additionally, the hosts are actually unbeaten in their last four matches against the visitors. They had three wins, while drawing one since October 2020. The visitors on the other hand are winless in their last eight matches across all competitions. With this kind of record, it is no longer surprising that they are in the relegation zone.

Lazio remains to be hopeful for a top four finish, as it will give them qualification to the Champions League. Currently at the fifth of the league table, Lazio just needs a win in this match to enter the top four. They are just two points behind the fourth placers, and if they win here, they can get an additional three points. It is not impossible though as they just entered the UEFA Conference League playoffs, after a goalless draw. Moreover, on their last league game, they were able to have a 2-0 win against Salernitana. This win ended their three-game winless run, which is just in-time for their campaign. They will look to strengthen their domestic campaign, to secure a higher spot in the league table.

Several important players might come back for Lazio, which is a good thing for them. Mattia Zaccagni is returning after a suspension and an illness that also keeps Milinkovic-Savic from playing. Romagnoli is also returning from an injury, while Patric is also returning after a ban.

Sampdoria is a struggling team in the Serie A, as they are currently at the 19th of the league table with just 11 points. In fact, they are most likely to be eliminated early this season, as they are nine points behind the 17th spot. They are coming from a 2-1 loss against Bologna on their last match. Sampdoria is now in a winless run, failing to win in their last eight matches across all competitions. They last experienced win last January 4, when they hade a 2-1 victory against Sassuolo. If they still want to try entering the playoffs, they need to start rebuilding themselves and address their issues in order to ensure win.

Ignacio Pussetto, and Koray Gunter remains to be absent for Sampdoria, but Murillo, Djuricic, and Sabiri, are all expected to be available in this match.
