Lazio vs Bologna Match Preview
Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic returns to the club with which he is most closely associated, trying to stop Lazio from following up last Wednesday’s Coppa Italia triumph.
Lazio enjoyed what was essentially a home showdown with Atalanta for the cup at the Stadio Olimpico and won 2-0 with goals in the last 10 minutes from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Joaquin Correa, albeit their opponents’ manager Gian Piero Gasperini claimed one important refereeing decision which went against his side had been “a scandal”.
The win put Lazio straight into the Europa League group stage and means they are no longer part of the dogfight for the places available in that competition from Serie A, which will leave one club in the tightly-packed cluster between third and seventh positions to miss out.
Mihajlovic enjoyed lots of success himself with Lazio as a player during their golden spell around the turn of the century, capturing the Serie A title, the Coppa Italia twice and the European Cup Winners’ Cup.
He has only been in charge of Bologna since the end of January but has lifted them out of relegation trouble and up into mid-table, essentially thanks to six straight wins at home.
On their travels, Bologna are not as effective though and Lazio are fancied to end their Stadio Olimpico campaign with a routine victory.
