Competition: Serie A
Market: Lazio win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to build off of their thumping European victory in midweek, Lazio will welcome Bologna to the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Lazio might have marked their return from the international break with that thumping defeat away at Sampdoria last weekend, the Eagles certainly bounced back in impressive fashion on Tuesday night. Although they might have welcomed German giants Borussia Dortmund to the Stadio Olimpico as a landslide underdog with the bookmakers, Simone Inzaghi’s men put in what was a rampant display as they picked up a deserved 3-1 win against BVB on home soil. Bringing an end to their three-match winless run earlier in the month and the mood in their camp likely to be at a real high, Lazio also have one attacking MVP enjoying another purple patch. Once again finding the net against Dortmund on Tuesday night, Cico Immobile also has three Serie A strikes to his name and will lead their charge this weekend.
As for the visitors, although Bologna might have shocked many and felt they were turning a real corner as they picked up a 4-1 win against Parma on home soil, the Greyhounds came crashing back down to earth. Putting on a worrying defensive display as they returned from the international break last weekend, Siniša Mihajlović’s men threw away a 3-1 lead in the final 25 minutes and eventually saw Sampdoria leave with a stunning 4-3 victory on their travels. Likely to still be feeling a hangover from their total collapse at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna have now suffered back-to-back Serie A defeats, including a shock 1-0 loss against top-flight returners Benevento. In for a tricky trip to Rome on Saturday night, we’re backing a home victory for Lazio this weekend.
Bet: Lazio 7/10 to beat Bologna in Saturday’s Serie A showdown @ 888sport
