Reason for Lazio vs Genoa Predictions
Lazio will be hoping to return to winning ways after the 2-1 Serie A losing effort in their last game against Sassuolo. Lazio managed 41% possession and 6 shots on goal with 2 on target in that game. Fixtures with Lazio have often been absorbing affairs lately, with a lot of goalmouth action being a real hallmark. Over their past half dozen clashes, a total of 22 goals has been recorded for both sides combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game), with 11 of these accredited to Lazio. Historical results aside, we must now wait to see whether that trend shall be maintained in this match. Looking at their most recent head-to-head clashes dating back to 23/09/2018 tells us that Lazio has won 4 of them and Genoa 1, with the tally of drawn games being 1. Luis Alberto (Muscular problems), Mattia Zaccagni (Calf Problems), and Pedro (Calf Problems) will be missing for Lazio gaffer Maurizio Sarri. Sergej Milinković-Savić plays perfectly without a mistake, he is strong, and it is not easy to take the ball away from this guy. Ciro Immobile played great last season, scoring 20 goals.
Genoa head into the encounter following on from a 1-0 Coppa Italia win against Salernitana in their last fixture. A tendency of at least one team not scoring a goal in games featuring Genoa has become evident in recent matches. Looking at their previous six outings reveals that it’s happened five times. During those clashes, opposing sides have managed a goal aggregate of 10 while Genoa has scored 2. Genoa manager Andriy Shevchenko currently has to contend with reduced team options. Nikola Maksimovic (Strain), Nicolò Rovella (Muscle Injury), and Mohamed Fares (Muscle Injury) are not able to play. Ivan Radovanovic is ineligible for this match because of suspension. Hernani plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Flavio Bianchi excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
Lazio is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. Ten of their last 11 head-to-head clashes went over a 2.5 margin, and we don’t think this one will be much different. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
