Saturday Football Tips: Take a shot at 7/1 Lazio Bet Builder

Maurizio Sarri
Maurizio Sarri hopes to improve Lazio's form

After another nice winner on Friday, Paul Higham is eyeing another one from Lazio v Monza in Serie A.

Lazio have had a poor start to the season with just three points from four Serie A games actually seeing them sitting a point behind Monza in the table.

Both sides have just one win this season so far but very different ones, with Monza beating bottom side Empoli while Lazio defeated reigning champions Napoli.

So Maurizio Sarri's side may be in a bit of a false position and should soon lift themselves up the table - and a home game against a side they beat twice last season without conceding.

The hosts should win this one really, but at 4/61.67 and after their start to the season there's not too much trust in Lazio so we'll look elsewhere for our Bet Builder picks.

Leg 1: Lazio over 6.5 corners

What you can be sure of with Lazio is that they attack, and get it wide, and most importantly win plenty of corner kicks.

The average a league-high seven corners per game, and even managed nine in their last game away at Juventus.

Lazio have played two home games this season and won a load of corners - getting 15 against Genoa in the league and 11 against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Monza have conceded seven and eight corners in their two away games at Atalanta and Inter, so we'll happily back Lazio to win over 6.5 corners at 7/42.75 given those metrics.

Leg 2: Luis Alberto 1+ shot on target

Luis Alberto has been Lazio's main creative spark this season and at times their only one given their paltry goal return so far.

The Spaniard has two goals and two assists and leads the team with five shots on target from 11 attempts.

He's hit the target in every game he's played in so far, so we'll back him to continue that run by taking the 8/111.73 on Alberto to have 1+ shot on target.

Leg 3: Mattia Zaccagni 1+ shot on target

And we'll finish with Lazio to have another shot on target and with Mattia Zaccagni to be the man to get it.

The Italian has been has three shots on target this season, all of which have come in the last couple of games - with every effort he's had hitting the target.

He's had nine shots altogther this season so is never afriad to pull the trigger, so we'll take him also at 8/111.73 to hit the target once at the Stadio Olimpico.

Back over 6.5 Lazio corners, Zaccagni & Alberto 1+ shots on target @ 7/18.00
