      Genoa vs Lazio Predictions

      A gritty, though ultimately hopeless effort against Juventus and a good 0-0 draw with Fiorentina capped a solid stretch of games for Genoa, which also included a 4-0 thrashing of Palermo. They have a little bit of breathing room away from the relegation zone, but only be five points and a tricky section of the fixture list continues with Saturday’s game against Lazio being followed by a trip to face AC Milan next weekend.

      There have been some hints of Lazio playing better football since the calendar flipped to 2016. However, the last two games have been symptomatic of Lazio’s campaign. They just couldn’t find a way to get past Udinese, held to a 0-0 draw, and then they were well beaten and outplayed in a 2-0 defeat to Napoli.

      Head-to-Head

      Lazio snapped an eight-game losing streak to Genoa with a 2-0 home win earlier in the Serie A season. That run had dated back to 2011. It’ll be interesting to see what sort of game is played in a match-up that has seen red cards handed out in four straight contests.

      Team News

      Genoa doesn’t have an injury to speak of, while Lazio’s problems putting out a fully healthy XI continue. Forward options Alessandro Matri, Filip Djordjevic and Ricard Kishna are all doubtful for Saturday, while Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Danilo Cataldi, Marco Parolo and Lucas Biglia could all miss out.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      It’s hard to ignore the gritty and often bitter games that have been played out between these two teams in recent history. We’ll predict that it’s a little ugly and we like the slight upset pick of Genoa in our correct score prediction, there’s just something in this clash that plays into their hands stylistically.
