The Serie A returns with an action-packed weekend after the international break as Lazio take on Crotone at the Stadio Ezio Scida on Saturday. Lazio have not been at their best this season and will look for a fresh start against Crotone in a potentially tricky fixture.

Crotone have endured a dismal season so far and are currently rooted to the bottom of the Serie A table. The home side scrapped its way to a 0-0 stalemate against Torino in its previous fixture and needs to take it up a notch in the Italian top flight.

Lazio have stunned their opponents with late flourishes in their last two games in the Serie A and will want to put in a more definitive performance against Crotone this weekend. The away side pulled off a 1-1 draw against Juventus with the last kick of the game earlier this month and needs to return to winning ways on Saturday.


Crotone vs Lazio Head-to-Head

Crotone have played Lazio on four separate occasions in the recent past in official fixtures. Lazio have a predictably better head-to-head record and have won two matches as opposed to Crotone's single victory.

The previous match between these two teams in 2018 ended in a 2-2 draw. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic got on to the scoresheet on the day and is likely to play a pivotal role in this fixture.
