Lazio win at half-time and full-time
The matches at Stadio Olimpico have gone overwhelmingly in favour of Lazio, who have been winning at half-time and full-time in four out of the last six matches on this ground. Genoa might carry a decent form coming into this game, but they are no strangers to struggles on this ground with four defeats in five.
Ciro Immobile to score anytime
Ciro Immobile is the talisman for Lazio and he has sustained the status with 18 goals so far this season. The 31-year-old has been in top form of late – scoring four times in the last three matches. His record against Genoa, who happen to be his second favourite team after Sampdoria, is exceptional. Immobile has 11 goals in 13 games against the Grifone and this is a better goals-to-game ratio than his record against Sampdoria.
Both teams to score – yes
Genoa continued their scoring spree with two goals against Spezia in the midweek action. Since the failure to score against Roma in the first week of March, Genoa have scored in seven consecutive matches. The team also tends to do well at the Stadio Olimpico with four goals in as many visits. Lazio’s offensive record does not need an introduction and hosts are favourites to grab a couple of goals.
Lazio vs Genoa: Match Preview and Predictions
Simone Inzaghi’s men took a giant leap towards finishing in the top four after a comprehensive win over AC Milan in the midweek action. The Biancocelesti will be able to reduce the deficit to Milan down to just two points if they win the game in hand. Such a favourable position is courtesy of the form shown by the team over the last few weeks. Apart from the thriller against Napoli, Lazio have won all of their last seven games. Francesco Acerbi is suspended for the game, while Felipe Caicedo and Gonzalo Escalante are unavailable due to injuries.
The availability of Goran Pandev is a major blow for Genoa coming into this game. Luca Pellegrini is also unavailable due to injuries. Apart from these setbacks, Genoa can look forward to an interesting game against Lazio after having avoided a defeat in five out of the last seven games. In fact, Genoa’s last defeat to a team outside the top five came back in the first week of January.
