Lazio vs Cesena
Match Date: 14-09-2014
Location: Rome
Stadium Olimpico
Referee Irrati
Time 15:00 CET

The biancocelesti are set to take on newly promoted Cesena on Sunday at the Stadio Olimpico. Lazio are coming off a tough opening loss to Milan, as for underdog Cesena they are looking to continue their winning streak to two, after taking their opening game against Parma one nothing. Lazio who struggled defensively against a Balo-less attack will look to rebound this week . The likes of Dusan Basta and Stefan Radu must rebound after a lack luster performance. Both Radu and Basta must play well defensively before  looking forward to attack. On the first Milan goal both players were no were to be seen defensively leaving a easy finish for Keisuke Honda to put it by Berisha. As for Cana and De Vrij they had an average game, Cana did not pick up his man on the second goal leaving Sulley  Muntari for an easy tap in. De Vrij will improve despite a forgetful week 1. I feel like once the likes of Gentiletti draws into the lineup, De Vrij will benefit much more playing with a natural center back. As for the likes of Parolo, Biglia & Lulic they had a great game against Milan, controlling the pace of the game. Look for that trio to have a great game on Sunday. Looking at our front three, they created numerous amount of chances but couldn't find the back of the net.  Candreva who had a respectable game was out performed by Spanish veteran Diego Lopez.  As for Keita and German veteran Miroslav Klose they had an average game, created some chances but not finding the back of the net. Look for Klose to have a great game against Cesena as the international break may affect his Week 2 performance if he were to start. Substitution Filip Đorđević was my man of the match. Although he wasn't credited for the goal he did play a huge factor on the play. I would start him for week 2 against Cesena. Felipe Anderson and Stefano Mauri were the other two players to draw in late for the biancocelesti, they played well for the time that they were in there, musters a couple of chances but both players were held off the score sheet at full time.  Look for Lazio to go with the same line up against Cesena, only change may be Braafheid drawing into the lineup for injured Stefan Radu, as well as a possible Filip Đorđević instead of Klose.

 

Predicted Line-up:

Berisha, Basta, De Vrij, Cana, Braafheid, Parolo, Biglia, Lulic, Candreva, Đorđević, Keita


Players to Watch Lazio:

My player to watch from Lazio would have to be Filip Dordevic. He entered the Milan-Lazio game in the 59th and not even ten minutes in the game deflected the first goal by Diego Lopez. Although he wasn't credited for the goal he still was in on the opportunity. I will make a bold prediction and say he scores first for Lazio on Sunday.

Players To Watch Cesena:

Don't know very much from newly promote Cesena but I'm gonna go with Alejandro Rodriguez . The 23 year-old Spanish man scored the only goal in Cesena's opening win against Parma.
