Genoa vs Lazio Match Preview
Lazio were in Europa League action on Thursday, but it’s the Champions League they will want to contest next season and they will aim to boost their chances of doing so when they visit Genoa.
The Biancocelesti are part of a five-way scrap for two places in the top four, assuming Juventus and Napoli end up first and second again which is looking highly likely at present.
Inter Milan are looking good for third place, but then it’s anyone’s guess as to which positions AC Milan, Atalanta, Roma and Lazio will finish in and that is how the order reads going into this 24th round of 38 matches.
After hosting Sevilla on Thursday (result not known at the time of writing) Lazio will bid to follow up their 1-0 Serie A victories over Frosinone and Empoli in which Felipe Caicedo was their goalscorer both times.
But as the stats above outline, they do not have a strong recent winning record away to Genoa, whose defeat to AC Milan was their only reverse at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in the last seven outings on their own pitch.
The odds for Simone Inzaghi’s visitors look a little too short here and so we will keep the other two outcomes on our side as Genoa try to put further daylight between themselves and the relegation zone.
