Will Lazio go to the next level?

With Champions League qualification within reach, Lee Bushe wonders if Lazio will reinvest in a deeper squad or carry on penny-pinching…

Barring a catastrophe, Lazio should qualify for the Champions League come the end of the season. Booking their spot in Europe’s elite competition is an impressive achievement, but they will feel slightly disappointed that they weren’t able to push Juventus all the way in the end.

Ribery banned for three games

Franck Ribery has been suspended for three games following his conduct in the aftermath of Fiorentina's controversial 2-1 loss against Lazio.

In the build-up to Lazio's second goal, Jordan Lukaku appeared to foul Fiorentina winger Riccardo Sottil.

That led to remonstrations and calls for referee Marco Guida to look at VAR, but he failed to do so.

Ribery contested the decision after the game and went on to push match official Matteo Passeri.

Lazio building towards success

The Biancocelesti consistently seem to be on the verge of greatness, but Sam Wilson feels it's an exciting time to be a Lazio fan.

Arguably, very few sides have been closer to deserving a place in the Champions League over the past few seasons than Lazio. In the 2017-18 season, the club missed out on fourth spot after a devastating loss to Inter on the final day of the season, whilst the last campaign ended in a bittersweet manner, finishing eighth in Serie A whilst lifting the Coppa Italia trophy.

Lazio close on Vavro move

Lazio are closing on FC Copenhagen centre-back Denis Vavro for €10m, as it’s reported Watford saw their offer rejected.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Premier League side Watford made a bid for the Slovakia international, but it was insufficient.

The Biancocelesti are confident the 23-year-old favours them and hope to lower the asking price from €12m to €10m.

Vavro only joined FC Copenhagen from MSK Zilina in 2017 for €1.4m and his contract runs to June 2022.
