Our recommended bet for Monday’s clash at The Stadio Artemio Franchi comes in the form of a Lazio victory, featuring a goal from top scorer Ciro Immobile.

The latest round of fixtures in Italy’s top-flight is set to come to a close at The Stadio Artemio Franchi on Monday, October 10th.
The clash in question will see lowly Fiorentina play host to high-flying Lazio.
Starting with the former, Fiorentina, all told, have endured a disappointing campaign to date.
Despite adding to their squad in high-profile fashion courtesy of the additions of the likes of Luka Jovic, Dodo and Pierluigi Gollini over the summer, the Viola have stuttered to wins in just two of their eight fixtures thus far.
A 1-0 defeat at the hands of Atalanta in their return to action post-international break last weekend, in turn, leaves Vincenzo Italiano’s troops sitting in a lowly 13th in the Serie A table.
It is perhaps worth noting, though, that Monday’s hosts did at least manage a return to winning ways in midweek, courtesy of a 3-0 downing of Scottish outfit Hearts in the Europa Conference League.
The odds of Fiorentina making it two wins on the spin across all competitions against Lazio, though, look altogether slim.
Maurizio Sarri’s side have been in top form on the domestic front of late, rattling off a trio of successive victories, by a head-turning combined scoreline of 10-0.
Such positive results, though, came at the expense of Hellas Verona, Cremonese and, most recently, Spezia, all of whom are battling against the drop at present.
Nevertheless, Lazio are set to make the trip to Florence in the knowledge that another triumph will see them climb to 3rd in the Serie A table, just three points adrift of top spot.
We at 101 are therefore backing the capital giants to do the business on Monday, with perennial Capocannoniere candidate Ciro Immobile amongst the goals.
