Tip Reasoning

  • Genoa suffered their first defeat under Alexander Blessin last week, and have just one win in their last 28 Serie A matches.
  • The hosts have failed to score in seven of their last 10 outings.
  • Lazio have managed three wins in their last four league games.
  • Only one of the nine Serie A defeats suffered by Maurizio Sarri’s team came against a side currently in the bottom half.

Genoa need wins after Blessin suffers first reverse

Having managed one win and seven draws from a remarkable first eight games with Genoa, Alexander Blessin finally suffered his first defeat at the helm last week, seeing his men go down 1-0 to Verona after an uninspiring performance. With just seven games remaining and four games against top-six opponents to come, including Sunday’s clash with Lazio, 18th-placed Genoa must surely go for the throat in their remaining matches.

Going for the throat, however, is not exactly a strength of Genoa’s. With five of their seven draws under Blessin being goalless, they have now failed to score in seven of their last 10 league games, scoring a horrendous 23 goals in 31 games so far this term. Genoa did find the net in a 3-1 reverse to Lazio back in December, but Sunday’s visitors look well-placed for another success in this contest.

Lazio have won three of their last four Serie A games, recovering from a miniature blip to remain firmly on track for a top-six finish. Maurizio Sarri’s team have scored 60 goal in 31 league games, a tally bettered only by Scudetto contenders Inter, and have a strong record against Serie A’s lesser lights this term. Indeed, only one of their nine league losses came against a side currently in the bottom half, an October reverse to Bologna, who are currently 12 points clear of Genoa in 13th.

Visitors should triumph against goal-shy strugglers

Considering the price available around Lazio for this clash (just a shade of odds-on), and the woeful attacking returns of a Genoa side which needs to make a play for survival sooner or later, backing Sarri’s men for a Sunday morning win looks the obvious play.

Given Genoa’s attacking toils, they could also be set for a third shutout win in five games. 2-0 to the visitors looks a decent correct score prediction.
