Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Lazio have seen both teams net in two of their three games since returning to action after the World Cup, while Bologna have seen goals at both ends in five of their last seven matches – including against Inter Milan and Atalanta. 25 goals have been scored across Lazio’s nine home league games this term, and Thursday’s cup tie could provide more goalmouth entertainment.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

Bologna have won six of their last nine matches and could make things awkward for a home side sweating on the fitness of captain and talisman Ciro Immobile. Bologna lost 2-1 on this ground in August but have made large strides since Thiago Motta took charge, and they will fancy their chances of forcing extra time.

Lazio vs Bologna Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in two of the three games to feature Lazio since the World Cup break.
  • Bologna have seen both teams score in five of their last seven games, including in fixtures against Inter Milan and Atalanta.
  • There have been 25 goals scored in the nine home matches played by Lazio in Serie A this term.
  • Lazio beat Bologna 2-1 on home soil earlier this season.

Lazio bid for Coppa Italia progress

The Coppa Italia has provided a source of regular success for Lazio in recent years, with the Biancocelesti winning the competition five times since the turn of the century – a tally only matched by giants Juventus and Inter Milan. On Thursday, Maurizio Sarri’s men will bid to tee up a quarter-final against either Juventus or Monza, but opponents Bologna will likely make things awkward.

Lazio have been inconsistent since returning from the World Cup break, with Sunday’s 2-0 win at Sassuolo their first since early November. Sarri’s team have struggled defensively this month, seeing both teams net in two of their last three games – against Lecce and Empoli. 25 goals have been scored in the nine home matches played by Lazio in Serie A this campaign, and they have conceded six times in their last four outings on home soil, all of them against unfancied opponents.

Bologna, meanwhile, earned their first victory since the World Cup against Udinese last time out, making it six wins in their last nine games either side of the tournament. Bologna have improved considerably since they went down 2-1 at Lazio on the opening day of the Serie A season, with Thiago Motta’s men finding their shooting boots recently, scoring multiple goals in five of their last eight games, while five of their last seven have contained over 2.5 goals.

Both teams to net at Stadio Olimpico

With Lazio continuing to produce inconsistent performances and harbouring concerns about captain Ciro Immobile after he limped off against Sassuolo, punters are advised to neglect the result markets and back both teams to net.

Meanwhile, if the hosts make changes, Bologna may be able to continue their encouraging run by forcing extra time, with a 1-1 draw potentially representing a decent correct score prediction.
