Lazio currently sit 4th in the Serie A league table- just four points behind leaders AC Milan- and are expected to pressurize the teams above them by beating Siena who have not managed a win in any of their last five games.
Contrastingly Lazio have not lost in the last five games but will be disappointed with their final two games of 2011; drawing with Udinese and Chievo, which ultimately lead to them coming into the new year outside the top three and automatic champions league places.
For Siena the Christmas break couldn’t have come sooner. They will be hoping 2012 brings them better luck and results as their run of 5 games without a win has seen them plummet to just three points clear of the relegation zone.
Lazio have not lost an away game so far this season, which when combined with Siena’s poor home form of just three wins in eight does not look promising.
Siena have not conceded many goals when considering their position in the table but have the unfortunate combination of scoring less, only managing 14 goals in 16 games.
Lazio have exactly double the amount of points than that of Siena so far and will be hoping to extend the gap.
With the surrounding teams of Lazio competing in matches they are fully expected to win Lazio need to ensure they also keep up with the pace to avoid further points separating them and the three teams above.
