Brescia (18th) host Lazio (3rd) at the Mario Rigamonti in Serie A’s first fixture of the new decade, Lazio have won four of their last eight Serie A away matches against Brescia (3W, 1D) after not finding success in any of the previous 11 (2D, 9L).

The home side go into the fixture having collected seven points in the last four league games, defeating both SPAL and Lecce along with a draw with Parma. This improvement of form has seen The Lioness secure as many points as those gained in the previous 13 weeks.

Lazio have won their last eight league games, only once in their history have they made nine Serie A wins in February 1999.

Luis Alberto and Lucas Leiva are suspended for the game against Brescia while Ciro Immobile and Danilo Cataldi must prove their fitness to be eligible for selection.

Brescia vs Lazio: Prediction

The game away to Brescia will be a tough challenge for Lazio, especially taking into consideration the loss of Alberto and Leiva. The two players have played a significant part in the success of their side this season, Alberto contributing to a significant amount of goals through his assists and Leiva carrying out a significant amount of defensive duties allowing Lazio’s more advanced players to push on.

Despite the above I am still opting for a record breaking Lazio victory.

Prediction: Brescia 0-2 Lazio
