Genoa vs Lazio
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 3 January 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, Genoa.
Battle against relegation continues for Genoa in 2021 as well. The Griffins are sitting under the red line after winning only ten points from the opening fourteen duels. Start of the new year is not going to be easy in terms of schedule. The next opponent is Lazio who are desperate for three points so they could catch up with top four teams.
All in all, we should witness an interesting clash. Judging by the 1.60 odds on away win, The Sky Blues have much better chances to claim victory. Genoa’s current stats at home are looking horrible, having one win, one draw and five losses. The bad run was ended in the previous round with a 2-1 win over Spezia.
Genoa vs Lazio Head-to-head
Last season’s h2h at this stadium was one of the most exciting Serie A clashes in that campaign. After a lot of struggle, Lazio SS celebrated narrow 3-2 victory. Winning goal was scored by Danilo Cataldi.
Genoa hosted Sky Blues 15 times in the past, winning five and losing six duels. 41 goal was scored in those encounters which averages 2.73 per duel.
The last nine times these opponents locked horns final result had at least three goals scored total.
Genoa vs Lazio Prediction
As mentioned above, Davide Ballardini’s squad just can’t find a way to collect points at home more consistently. Four out of the last five home fixtures ended with four losses. Interestingly, Genoa have scored at least one goal in every single of those matches.
Fans were expecting to see more from Serie A veteran Goran Pandev, but Macedonian striker scored only one goal this season. The most dangerous individual is Mattia Destro who scored four. He played big part in recent 2-1 win against Spezia on the road.
As for their opponents, Lazio SS are having huge consistency problems. One week you see them easily beat Napoli at home, but then lose to AC Milan 2-3 despite the fact they had more goal opportunities.
Since hosts improved a lot lately, we see good value in backing Genoa with a double chance on Sunday.
