The Aquile are attempting to recover from their loss last weekend, but it may be more difficult than most anticipate. Maurizio Sarri’s team needs to defeat the Giallorossi in order to avoid falling into third position in Serie A.
The Biancocelesti do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team winning only one of their last four league matches. They are still seen as favorites to pick up all three points from Friday’s clash.
When Lens plays Reims on Friday night, they will be attempting to make it four games in a row that they have won. With a chance to clinch a place in the Champions League, Lens will probably go all out against Reims. In contrast, Les Rouges et Blancs overcame Lille thanks to a goal from Marshall Munetsi. Thus ending their three-game losing streak but realizing that they had little to play for in the season finale.
Lazio vs Leece
There are only four rounds left in the 2022–23 season in Italy’s top division (Serie A), and it is certain that we will witness a wild race for the top three spots in the elite European competition (more specifically, the group stage of the UEFA Champions League). Since up to six teams are competing for survival, the action won’t be any less intense in the lowest section of the table.
Lazio is now in one of the spots that will guarantee elite European football for the upcoming season, but they will need to demonstrate their aspirations in the season’s picture finish because fifth-placed AC Milan is only three points ahead of them. Lecce, their opponent on Friday, is taking the initiative in the conflict.
With only four points separating them from Spezia, the first-most threatened team, the Apulia club may be out of the relegation zone, but it does not mean they are in a secure position.
The team led by Marco Baroni has spent the majority of the season comfortably separated from the bottom three. The Salentini, however, have fallen to within four points of the relegation zone and need at least one victory to assure safety due to a terrible run of form and improved play from Verona.
The visitors’ trip to the capital on Saturday is unfortunately unlikely to net them the points they so sorely need. Lazio, who has only dropped eight games all year, is our pick to win in their battle for second place.
Having overseen one of Lazio’s worst performances of the year in last weekend’s loss to Milan, Maurizio Sarri will be eager to resume play. Ciro Immobile in particular, who is frequently the spark that ignites victory, was especially off the pace and was a spectator for the majority of the game.
But after a full week of practice, we anticipate that Lazio will be back to their best. Immobile is our pick to score anytime. Given that Lecce has only scored once in their last four games, the Aquile will be able to play with confidence, allowing the hosts to concentrate on attacking themselves.
Lazio has registered four triumphs from the last five home games, and considering that Lecce is coming to them, who was terrible in recent visits, the fans of the Roman club wish for a new celebration.

Lens vs Reims
The current season is wonderful for Lens. For the first time in 20 years, they are quite likely to receive direct entry into the Champions League if they perform well in their final four games. They might even get involved in the championship title matchup between the PSG team, but that would require a miracle that is unlikely to occur.
They now trail the leader by 6 points and Marseille is the team behind them by 2 points. Marseille defeated them in the most recent match at home with a score of 2:1, passing them in the standings.
The outstanding forward Lois Openda added another goal for Lens, her fourth in the previous three matches and 19th in all of Ligue 1.
Reims is also having a strong season given the circumstances. They enjoyed a remarkable streak of 16 games without a loss in all competitions at one point during the season, but in recent weeks, they have had an expected relapse in form.
Reims is now in 10th place with 50 points won after ending their run of three straight losses this past week with a narrow victory against Lille at home.
Despite Reims’ undeniable strength and respectability, it is difficult to envision a situation in which the home club would blow the chance to win and pick up 3 new points. Only two opponents were able to score at the Bollaert-Delelis Stadium this season, giving Lens by far the best home field. They won the remaining 15 contests, posting a fantastic goal differential of 36:12.
The team’s motivation, which is on the side of Lens, where taking second place would be one of the biggest victories in the club’s history after winning the title in the 1997–98 season, will also be a significant influence. There is no doubt about the home team’s triumph.
Lois Openda, a striker for Lens, has scored ten goals in his last eight games, giving him a total of 19 for the league this season. A solid anytime goalscorer pick, the Belgian scored the game-winning goal at the back post on Saturday, giving him five goals in his previous four home games.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
