[banner][/banner]     Third-placed Lazio, fresh from beating AC Milan 4-0, will be looking to continue their upward trend in Serie A as they look to leapfrog the inconsistent AC Milan to second on the table. Mid-table-placed Fiorentina will be looking to turn their form around after losing their last two consecutive clashes in the league. 

Key Highlights

Lazio's Positive Form

Maurizio Sarri’s men are in a good vein of form in Serie A in the post-World Cup re-start. They have won their last three outings in the league, scoring 7 goals and keeping three clean sheets in the process. They have not lost since the 2-1 reverse at Lecce. This means they have collected 10 points from the available 15 in their last 5 assignments in Serie A. This run has seen Sarri’s men climb the table to 3rd, a point behind second-placed Milan and 13 points behind the in-form league leaders Napoli. Sarri will look to continue his side’s brilliant form when they host Fiorentina on Sunday. 

Fiorentina’s Inconsistency

Fiorentina’s form has lacked consistency this season to challenge for European places. They have won 6 times, drawn 5, and lost 8 matches out of their 19 fixtures so far in Serie A.  In the last five outings, Vincenzo Italiano and his charges won just once, drew once, and lost three times. They have collected four points and dropped 11. As a result, they are currently 11th on the table with 23 points, 11 points from the drop zone. Vincenzo Italiano will be looking to revive his side's form as they hope to improve on their mid-table form this season. 

Injury Report

Lazio

Maurizio Sarri will not count on center-back Mario Gila in the clash against Fiorentina. The 22-year-old is nursing a foot injury he picked up on January 2nd, which has kept him out of the last 5 outings. Lazio will also be without center-forward Ciro Immobile. The experienced Italian international has been recovering from a hamstring injury since January 15th. The 32-year-old is expected to be back fit in the first week of February. Maurizio Sarri will also have to do without right winger Luka Romero, suspended until February 20th, 2023. 

Fiorentina

Vincenzo Italiano has a few absences that will impact his choice ahead of their travel to the Stadio Olimpico. Left winger Riccardo Sottil is out with a herniated disc. The 23-year-old is a long-term case, having missed 19 matches already. [banner][/banner]     Center-forward Arthur Cabral (unknown injury), center-back Lucas Martínez Quarta (patella tendon luxation), and central midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli (disrupted calf muscle) are all missing from action for Fiorentina.

Possible Lineups

Lazio

I. Provedel; A. Marusic, N. Casale, A. Ramagnoli, E. Hysaj; S. Milinkovic-Savic, D. Cataldi, L. Alberto; Pedro, F. Anderson, M. Zaccagni

Fiorentina

P. Terracciano; L. Venuti, N. Milenkovic, Igor, C. Biraghi; S. Amrabat, A. Duncan; J. Ikone, G. Bonaventura, R. Saponara; C. Kouame

Prediction

Maurizio Sarri will look to press his side's advantage at home against Fiorentina on Sunday. They will want to follow the impressive 4-0 demolition of defending champions AC Milan with a win and make a case for their top-four credentials. Sarri’s men will look to dominate the ball and the match's tempo through their incessant pressing and comfortable possession football.  Fiorentina will be looking to arrest their bad run of form. The focus will be on solidity and compactness in their approach. They will minimize the spaces that Lazio’s wide players can exploit, and they will look to attack with speed on the break. Lazio will have too much for Fiorentina, and they will win the match and continue with their fine run of form. Make sure to bet on Lazio vs Fiorentina with 22Bet!"

FA Cup Preview

Antonio Conte was brought in by the Tottenham hierarchy to end their long wait for a major piece of silverware. The FA Cup looks to be their best chance of achieving that target this term. Spurs have been in indifferent form in the league over recent weeks, but a recent 1-0 win away from home against Fulham ensures that they remain in the hunt for a Champions League spot.

Their attention will be on the FA Cup this weekend, as Spurs look to reach the fifth round of the competition for the fourth straight season. However, Spurs are yet to reach the FA Cup final since the 1990-91 season where they won their most recent FA Cup. Tottenham avoided a shock in the third round, as Harry Kane scored the winning goal against Portsmouth.

Preston’s main aim will likely be centred on their target to get into the Premier League this season. However, a good cup run is something that the team have struggled for in recent season. This is the first time since 2017-18 that Preston have reached the fourth round, while they haven’t reached the fifth round since 2014-15. 

They were fine winners in the previous round against Huddersfield at Deepdale, as they battled back from 1-0 down to claim a 3-1 success. Bambo Diaby and Alan Browne scored in the final 15 minutes to seal a memorable turnaround.

Preston vs Tottenham Head to Head 

This is the first meeting between the sides since a 5-1 win for Spurs in the League Cup in 2009. Tottenham has won the previous two meetings, and Preston are without a win against Spurs since a 2-1 FA Cup success in March 1966.

Preston vs Tottenham Prediction 

This should be an exciting FA Cup showdown between Premier League and Championship opposition on Saturday. Spurs will need to be at their very best to get over the line against the team from the second tier, and we could see them grinding out a 1-0 win at Deepdale.
