Lazio vs Genoa Prediction, Lineups and Betting Tips
Italian Serie A, 5 February 2018: Lazio must slay Genoa’s resistance without two key players out suspended against a Genoa side that has reanimated its campaign under Davide Ballardini’s leadership. “The Roman Eagles” remain third and can increase their lead over fourth-placed Inter, despite a controversial 2-1 loss to Milan last weekend, followed by the same teams drawing with no goals scored in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final tie on Wednesday night.
What about Genoa? Well, their season has already been separated into two halves – under Coach Ivan Juric and now Ballardini. Before the latter took the helm on 6th November, “The Rossoblu” had won just once in 12 games, now they have won four in ten and are a side that hardly concedes. To be more exact, Genoa have conceded more than one goal only two times (2 goals in both occasions – vs Juventus and Atalanta) in the last 12 games. However, now they face Lazio who were the best attacking Serie A club (57 goals in 22 rounds) before Juve’s remarkable 7-0 win over Sassuolo on Sunday afternoon.
