The 2021-22 Serie A campaign comes to an end this weekend and will see Lazio host Hellas Verona at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday night.

Lazio have had a rather up-and-down campaign but have secured Europa League football ahead of next season. They came back from a two-goal deficit to pick up a 2-2 draw against Juventus last time out via an own goal and a late equalizer from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Biancocelesti sit fifth in the league table with 63 points picked up so far. Their season is practically over and they will now be looking to bow out with a win.

Hellas Verona were on the hunt for Europe at one stage of the season but ran out of steam and are now set for yet another mid-table league finish. They lost 1-0 to Torino last time out in a closely contested affair at the Marc Antonio Bentegodi.

The away side sit ninth in the league table, with 52 points from 37 games. They will be looking to shake off their latest result and end their campaign on a high.

Lazio are unbeaten in their last three league games and have lost just one of their last seven in the competition. They have lost just one of their last five home games and will hope to maximize their home advantage on Saturday.

Hellas Verona are on a run of back-to-back defeats and have won just one of their last four games. The home side should come out on top here.
