Head to head
The last league contest featuring these sides was Serie A match day 7 on 18/09/2022 which ended up with the score at Cremonese 0-4 Lazio.
That time, Cremonese had 44% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 3 on target.
At the other end, Lazio got 14 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Ciro Immobile (7', 21'), Sergej Milinković-Savić (45') and Pedro (79') scored.
The match was refereed by Daniele Orsato.
When taking all factors into account, Lazio will probably have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
Conversely, Cremonese could well struggle finding the net themselves but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be getting enough chances to score, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a decent 3-1 winning score for Lazio when all’s said and done.
