Lazio vs Genoa
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-Off at 11.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Lazio found a great way to bounce back from a tough 5-2 loss at Napoli as they demolished Milan 3-0 on Monday evening. The victory brought I Biancocelesti right back in contention for the top-four finish.
Simone Inzaghi’s men now sit five points short of the likes of Napoli, Juventus, and Milan who all share the third position at the moment.
Lazio have a game in hand on each of these teams, meaning the gap is theoretically just two points (assuming I Biancocelesti beat Torino in that game in hand).
Inzaghi’s troops will have a nice opportunity to back up the mentioned drubbing of Milan on Sunday morning when they play host to bottom-half Genoa in the first Serie A game of the day at Stadio Olimpico.
The visitors will also enter the match with an improved confidence after grabbing a very important 2-0 victory over Spezia last time out. However, they can hardly hope for points against highly motivated Champions League hopefuls away from home.
Lazio vs Genoa Head-to-head
- Lazio have not been as dominant in this match-up as you might think. They only lead the head to head tie by four wins going into the 33rd encounter with I Rossoblu.
- However, the Biancocelesti did win two and draw one of the last three clashes against Genoa.
- Lazio bagged four goals in each of the last two home matches against I Rossoblu.
Lazio vs Genoa Prediction
Genoa are five points above the red zone after the victory over Spezia. They do have an exciting attacking line with Mattia Destro, Goran Pandev, and Gianluca Scamacca (who was on target after coming on as a sub last weekend).
However, Rossoblu generally found goals hard to come by on travels this season. They only scored 12 goals in 16 away outings this term. They won 3 and lost 8 of these 16 affairs in the process and they can hardly expect to improve such a record against the Biancocelesti who have been almost impeccable this term in Rome.
Lazio will enter this on the back of ten consecutive home wins in the league. They notched at many as eight goals in the last two league fixtures at Stadio Olimpico.
We have more than enough reasons to back the hosts here. You can also try with Joaquin Correa to score anytime at the 2.60 odds. The Argentinean forward bagged two of his team’s three goals last Monday against the Rossoneri.
