Lazio vs Genoa
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
The history between the two teams strongly supports goals here, especially from Lazio and I’m positive they will put up a good show at the Stadio Olimpico against a tricky customer like Genoa.

Lazio vs Genoa: Prediction
With the win-draw-loss record of 2-1-2, Lazio are sitting at 8th position in the league. The Biancocelesti have defeated Parma (2-0) last weekend but failed to stop Inter (0-1) at Giuseppe Meazza on Wednesday.
Ciro Immobile came off the bench against Nerazzurri as a punishment for inappropriate behavior after being subbed off against Parma. The media outlets have him in starting XI against Genoa this Sunday. Stefan Radu (fever) is questionable for this one.
Genoa played out a goalless draw vs Bologna at home after 1-3 loss against Cagliari at Sardegna Arena last week. The Rossoblu are 17th in the standings with 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses. They will take a trip to Olimpico for the second time this season – Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men were involed in a thrilling 3-3 draw vs Roma in the season opener. Edoardo Goldaniga has joined Stefano Sturaro and Davide Biraschi on the treatment table.
Lazio are scoring 1.40 goals per game this season, but they should up those numbers, especially at home, where they averaged almost two goals per game last term.
H2H strongly supports goals here, especially from home team, and I’m positive they will put up a good show. Immobile has scored four in five Serie A games so far.
Genoa are bagging two goals per game on their travels, but they concede more – exactly three. Four of five Rossoblu’s games this season had at least three goals in it, and BTTS was a winning bet four times as well.
With Kouame (3 goals in 5 games) and Pinamonti up-front supported by decent midfield cast, I reckon they will get on the scoresheet as well.
