Lazio vs Genoa – Serie A: High hopes, great disappointments. A week and 2 matches against AC Milan have cooled off, almost freezing
Lazio’s sense of improvement, that they had gained when they reached 3rd place. There were rumours going around the club from the capital of the possibility of getting on the title fight. But on the Serie A, dropping points comes at a high price.
Lazio have lost the league match, which stopped their excellent streak of results, having then tied on the 1st leg match of the Coppa Italia’s semi-finals.
However, despite the fact that those points were important for them to stay near the top spots of the league table, Lazio still has an important advantage to maintain,
in order to stay on a position to qualify for the Champions League (this season the top 4 spots of the Serie A grant direct access to the competition).
The most likely scenario will be, returning to matches against a team of the bottom half of the league table, and playing at home, Lazio returning to positive results,
with the team’s offensive firepower causing problems against opponents such as Udinese, Chievo Verona or Spal just a few weeks ago.
For Genoa, this is a match inserted on a difficult streak, where the team has showcased its defensive ability, only conceding 1 goal against Juventus and Udinese, but without any real impact in attack, which means they have lost by the minimum margin.
Playing in Rome, once again, Genoa is expected to contain their opponent’s offensive weapons. But the trend of the encounter will definitely be marked by a Lazio with injured pride.
Lazio vs Genoa – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match where Lazio will control the operation, I’m curious to understand if their break last week was provisional.
The most likely scenario is for us to see some goals and the Eagles of Rome getting another win.
