Lazio vs Genoa Preview

Lazio vs Genoa

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 5th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Simone Inzaghi has done a great job at Lazio turning a group of players who many have been written off in their previous clubs to top performers.

They are currently vying for a place inside the top four with AS Roma and Inter Milan also looking for the two remaining spots.

Lazio should see off Genoa here as the visitors have lost half of their league games this season, averaging 1.18 points per away game.

Lazio have scored 14 goals in their last four league games which gives them a great chance to win this game, especially as Genoa have scored only 0.45 goals per away game this season – the second lowest away goal scoring record in the league.

Ciro Immobile has already netted 20 times this season, has scored five goals in his last five games and netted twice when these sides met in the reverse fixture.

This could be another game for him to impress his suitors.

Lazio have won their last three home matches against Genoa, and six of their last 4 match up overall.

Genoa come into this game after 1:0 losses to Juventus and Udinese and their next two fixutres don’t get any easier as they visit Chievo before hosting Internazionale.
