Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Ciro Immobile – Immobile has 20 goals and 6 assists in Serie A this season. He has created 56 chances, attempted 50 shots on target and successfully completed 60% of his attempted dribbles. He has been in fine form as well with 6 goals and 2 assists in his last 7 games for the club.

Andrea Belotti – The Italian international has been one of the better players for Torino this season. He has 13 goals and 6 assists so far, creating 42 chances, attempted 39 shots on target and 46 successful dribbles. Belotti also scored their only goal in the last game and will be Torino’s biggest chance of remaining in Serie A.

Differential Pick

Luis Alberto – Luis Alberto has been an underrated presence in the Lazio midfield. He has managed to rack up 9 goals and 2 assists this season from central midfield. He has created 76 chances, attempted 27 shots on target and succeeded in 49 dribbles. His job will be to pull the strings from the middle of the park and boasts a pass accuracy of 82%. Despite playing centrally, he has whipped in 28 accurate crosses.

LAZ vs TOR Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Reina
Defenders – Izzo, Bremer, Marusic, Radu
Midfielders – Alberto, Lazzari, Lukic
Forwards – Immobile (C), Sanabria, Belotti (VC)

Likely Winner:

This game does not mean a lot to Lazio but it could be the difference between staying up and relegation for Torino. They have been in a good spot to reach safety for a while but fail to capitalize on it. Nicola’s side will have to put their previous defeats behind them and give it their all in the LAZ vs TOR Today Match Prediction. Lazio will not like to go easy on this game in order to follow up on their disappointing loss to Roma. They will look to score early and give their fringe players a run-in.
