Bologna vs Lazio
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 26 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna
Lazio have finally ended their winless streak and jumped Milan to the 4th spot on Serie A table with a 3-1 win over Cagliari on Saturday, now travelling to Bologna in search of points to build on the spot as brothers Inzaghi lead the sides with quite contrasting ambitions late in 2018.
Indeed, Bologna have held off both Milan and Parma in two goalless draws now behind them and now sit just a point behind 17th placed Udinese, looking to escape the red zone with all-important points at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara – in the hope they can capitalize on the rivals’ inconsistency midway through the week too.
Biancocelesti have seen four games without a win on the road and just two points in trips to Sassuolo and Chievo, as well as a narrow 1-0 loss at Atalanta, will hardly be a confidence booster. Nonetheless, we’ve finally seen a more promising display in the attacking third over the weekend and Lazio should be very motivated to build on the tally – despite seeing goals coming from somewhat unexpected heroes.
Bologna vs Lazio: Head-to-head
- Lazio have bagged wins on both of their last two trips to this ground.
- Bologna have held the rivals to a 1-1 draw in their last encounter, though, snatching a point at Stadio Olimpico.
- We have seen three draws in the sides’ last five head-to-head matchups with goals on both ends on all of those occasions.
Bologna vs Lazio: Prediction
We will now back Lazio to snatch the points but we don’t feel it will come easy now, as we stick our necks out for a one-goal Winning Margin at 3.60. We have seen Bologna put on tough defensive displays over the past couple of weeks and we do now hope for more of the same.
Still, we don’t see Bologna breaking down the rivals or making it on the scoresheet, which also has us going for a low-scoring occasion at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara and Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.00. This seems like great value as Lazio still have to prove they’re past their goal scoring woes on the road midway through the week.
