2023/24 Italian Serie A
SS Lazio v Cagliari FC
Saturday, 2 December 2023
Kick-off is at 19h00
SS Lazio will be determined to ease their woes in the Serie A
when they host Cagliari FC at the Stadio Olimpico on 2 December.
The Eagles suffered a 2-1 loss to US Salernitana away on 25 November as they extended their winless run to three matches in the Italian top-flight.
However, Lazio are undefeated in their last five home matches in the league having recorded three successive wins and two draws at the Stadio Olimpico.
Meanwhile, Cagliari were held to a 1-1 draw by AC Monza at home on 26 November and they are now winless in their last two matches in the Serie A.
The Islanders are also winless in their last 11 away matches in the league having recorded seven defeats and four draws on the road.
Mattia Zaccagni, Nicolò Casale and Alessio Romagnoli are all on Lazio's injury list at the moment and the Eagles have no suspension concerns.
On the other hand, Marko Rog, Elio Capradossi, Nahitan Nández, Alessandro Di Pardo and Marco Mancosu are all on Cagliari's injury list, but the club has no suspension issues.
"Something has to be done to break this inertia,” Lazio manager Maurizio Sarri said after his side's defeat to Salernitana.
"The squad has lost character and initiative. After scoring a goal in the first half, we came back out hoping to control it for 50 minutes. That is not what our characteristics are as a team.
"If over the next few days I evaluate and find that it is my fault, I will be the first to take the decision to walk away by speaking to the [Lazio] President."
Lazio thrashed Cagliari 3-0 in their last meeting in the league which was on 5 March 2022 at the Unipol Domus.
Therefore, the Eagles are undefeated in their last 16 league matches against the Islanders having registered 13 wins and three draws.
