Fiorentina and Lazio will both be looking to establish some consistency when they meet at the Stadio Artemio Franchi to conclude Matchday 26 in Serie A.

As things stand, eighth-placed Fiorentina trail seventh-placed Lazio by two points, with both sides losing nine of their 25 league games this season.

Forbet’s preview for Monday’s clash features all the key stats, trends and team form data, along with a final prediction from our AI algorithm.

Let’s start by looking at the hosts, Fiorentina, who played out a 1-1 draw with Empoli last weekend, despite dominating the possession against their Tuscany rivals.

Still, La Viola have managed to win just one of their previous seven Serie A matches, recording two draws and four defeats in the process.

It is worth noting, however, that Fiorentina have remained resilient at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, recording five wins, one draw and one loss in their last seven home league games.

Better still, Fiorentina have conceded just four goals in their previous six home league games, keeping three clean sheets for good measure.

As for Lazio, they were in action on Thursday against Torino, claiming a 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Matteo Guendouzi and Danilo Cataldi.

Like Fiorentina, the Eagles have been unpredictable in recent times, recording two wins, one draw and two defeats in their last five Serie A encounters.

That said, Lazio secured an impressive 1-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week, meaning they have won eight of their previous 12 matches across all competitions.

It is also worth pointing out that Lazio have lost just one of their last six away games in Serie A, underlining their strength on the road.

Head-to-head: Lazio have won four of their last five Serie A meetings with Fiorentina, keeping a clean sheet in each of those victories.

To make matters worse for La Viola, they have managed to win just one of their previous 13 league matches against the Eagles, suffering nine defeats along the way.

Team news: Fiorentina look set to be without the injured trio of Gaetano Castrovilli, Oliver Christensen and Dodo for the foreseeable future.

Lazio’s injury list contains Patric, Nicolo Rovella and Mattia Zaccagni, while Mario Gila is suspended after seeing red on Thursday.

With both sides looking to discover some form, Monday’s clash will likely be a close-fought battle between two teams chasing European football.

Forebet predicts that Fiorentina will maintain their strong home form, scoring over 1.5 goals on their way to defeating Lazio.
