Lazio vs Sampdoria
Match Date: 05-01-2015
Location: Rome
Stadium Olimpico
Referee Calvarese
Time 20:45 CET

After the short winter break Serie A football is back and Lazio have a tough game against high flying Sampdoria. Both teams have been doing quite well in their hunt for a Champions League place and just before the Christmas break were sitting in the top 5.

Sinisa Mihajlovic’s team have been doing quite well this season and are one of the pleasant surprises this season. It will surely be an emotional game for the Serbian coach as he is loved by the Lazio fans and has great memories wearing the blue-white jersey.  There will surely be no sympathies during the 90 minutes in Rome and Mihajlovic will be hoping that his team will continue their good run and keep their hopes for European football high.

Mihajlovic’s first game as Sampdoria’s coach was against Lazio at the Luigi Ferraris and it finished in a 1-1 draw with Cana scoring a late equalizer in 2013 but the last game these teams played finished 2-0 for Lazio. Pioli’s men should feel quite confident because they have won 5 from their last 6 home games against Sampdoria.

After a 3-0 loss from champions Juventus and a disappointing 0-0 draw against Chievo Lazio found it’s good form and won three from their last four games (including a 3-0 victory against Varese in the Coppa Italia). Sampdoria on the other hand have drawn 5 times in their last 6 games but are still undefeated and will surely fight against history to snatch all three points at the Olimpico.

Gabbiadini is suspended for the game, Silvestre, Wszolek, De Vitis are all recovering from injuries. Lazio have no suspensions for the game but Biglia, Ciani and Braafheid will all miss the game because of injuries.

Expected starting line-ups:

Lazio: Marchetti; Basta, De Vrij, Cana, Radu; Parolo, Ledesma, Lulic; Anderson, Mauri, Djordjevic

Sampdoria: Romero; De Silvestri, Gastaldello, Romagnoli, Regini; Rizzo, Palombo, Obiang, Soriano; Okaka, Eder
