Lazio vs Bologna
Italy – Serie A
Date: Monday, 20 May 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Lazio host Bologna looking for points and a late challenge at a top 6 spots just days after beating Atalanta in Coppa Italia Final, earning four wins in five outings and now surely looking motivated despite a four-point gap and just two games left to play.
Biancocelesti have struggled to prove their worth at Stadio Olimpico lately and this has proven costly as Chievo and Atalanta snatched important league points, as Simone Inzaghi now wants his men to leave a better impression. They’ve been scoring goals lately and building on such records will be crucial.
Bologna have proven themselves a tough side to beat lately and sit in the mid-table mainly for such performances, where they earned three wins and only suffered a very narrow loss to Milan along the way. They’ve beaten Parma 4-1 on Monday and we now expect them in great shape up front once again, led by in-form Riccardo Orsolini. They’ve struggled for away points, though, despite scoring goals on the regular!
Lazio vs Bologna: Head-to-head
Lazio bagged a 0-2 win earlier this term and three wins in the last four head-to-head clashes.
Bologna last beat the rivals in 2012, with a 1-3 upset at this ground.
We’ve seen two or fewer goals in four of the last five occasions between the sides.
Lazio vs Bologna: Prediction
We will thus back Lazio to connect a double over the rivals and bag important points late in the campaign, as we go for a Home win at 2.10 as the best approach to the fixture despite seemingly no great stakes involved on Monday evening.
However, Biancocelesti have finally picked it up at the back and we thus feel Inzaghi will want more of the same, as we now also stick our necks out for a low-scoring clash with Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.10 – hoping to see them build on a defensive display here.
