On the other hand, the Romans are welcoming this Sunday’s match with Fiorentina after two defeats, which was followed after their brilliant series of five consecutive wins, four in the championship and one in Europa League.

As for the Italian Serie A, Lazio has started with two defeats at home from Napoli and as guest by Juventus, after which they made four wins and thus welcomed the last week’s derby with Roma. However, Roma’s players were better in that duel and they celebrated with 3-1, so Lazio now against Fiorentina has additional obligation to redeem to their supporters for two defeats in a row. We should also add that the injured defenders Lukaku and Durmisi are out of action due to injuries.
Probable lineups Lazio Rome: Strakosha – Luiz Felipe, Acerbi, Radu – Marusic, Parolo, Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Lulic – Luis Alberto – Immobile
Unlike Lazio, which was not very good in Serie A last season, Fiorentina's footballers came to a secure victory of 2-0 against Atalanta last weekend and they were again in third place on the table. Otherwise, they can especially thank their brilliant games on their field for this great ranking, where they have so far celebrated in all four matches, while they brought only one point from the previous three guest appearances.
That is why coach Piola announced a much more courageous approach on Sunday night at the Roman Olympico, especially since their rivals were a bit tired after their performances in Europa League. However, this should not fool their guests from Florence, because they are aware of the quality of the Roman team, which will be especially motivated after those two defeats. We should also add that Pioli still does not have any problems with absences.
Probable lineups AC Fiorentina: Lafont – Milenkovic, Pezzella, Vitor Hugo, Biraghi – Benassi, Veretout, Gerson – Chiesa, Simeone, Pjaca
