Bari – Lazio: match preview

So, after a fortnight of no club action, this Sunday we play the last Serie A match for round 7!  We have an advantage because Lazio players will know the results of all other matches and then perhaps adjust their attitude before this match. AC Milan won their match last night and they are currently leading in the standings with one match more than Lazio!

As for the team facing Bari, Mr Reja opted for more caution: 4-2-3-1 with a single center forward. Bari concentrates their attack on their wings and Reja is probably thinking of putting more pressure on their wingers.

Defense remains the same with Licht, Dias, Biava and Radu; 2 midfielders in front of the defense will be Ledesma and Brochi, while Mauri on the left, Hernanes in the center and Zarate on the right will be 3 advanced midfielders before Sergio Floccari.

So far Lazio has had played in a very pragmatic manner in away matches losing the opening one vs Samp (though undeservedly) and won at Fiorentina and Chievo respectively. Bari is an excellent team when playing in front of the home crowd and expect a difficult encounter.
