LAZ vs CRT Dream11 Tips for Lazio vs Crotone Serie A Fixtures 12 March


LAZ vs CRT Dream11: Lazio welcome Crotone to the historic Stadio Olimpico for a Serie A fixture. The blue side of Rome has been very poor of late despite a solid start to the season and have won just 1 of their last 5 games, losing 4. They have slipped out of the top 6 and our 4 points off Napoli who occupy the last European spot while they trail the Champions League spots by 7 points. Crotone is dead last in the league but picked up their 4th win of the season when they beat Torino 4-2 last weekend. They are still 7 points off safety but with their close counter-parts facing tough opposition this weekend, they will try to capitalise on potential slip-ups.

Date: 12th March, Friday
Kick-Off: 7:30 pm (IST)
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome

Serie A Table: Lazio is 7th in the table whereas Crotone is in last place.
