Lazio vs Monza: Recent History
Lazio have been all over the place in the early stages of the 2023-24 season, losing to Lecce, Genoa and Juventus but beating Napoli and drawing Atletico in sensational fashion. Despite the inconsistent results, optimism is still high heading into the formative stages of the campaign.
Monza have lost to Inter and Atalanta but did well in a 2-0 win over Empoli. They also drew to Lecce 1-1, showing positive signs in the first few weeks of their second topflight campaign. Their Coppa Italia came to an end at the first hurdle after a 2-1 loss to Reggiana in the first round.
When these two teams met last season, Lazio secured a 1-0 win at home and a 2-0 win away, results they’ll be hoping to repeat this term.
