At the Stadio Olimpico on Friday night, Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio entertain Andriy Shevchenko’s Genoa in Serie A action. Biancocelesti have been in poor form of late, so Sarri and his side will be desperate for all three points from this home fixture. Genoa are on a woeful winless run right now, failing to pick up three points since mid-September. Lazio are the odds-on favourites in this one. Check out the latest odds and top tips.

Lazio Preview – Must-win game for Sarri?

Lazio are down in ninth spot at present, collecting just 25 points from their opening 17 Serie A games. So far, Biancocelesti have picked up seven wins, suffered six losses and drawn four times.

Lazio have struggled for wins of late, picking up just one from their past five in Serie A. After three defeats in five, the pressure is starting to mount on Maurizio Sarri. Last weekend, the Eagles lost 2-1 away at Sassuolo.

Our betting prediction:
Lazio to win both halves

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1424 GMT, Thursday 16 December)

Lazio will be looking for their first home win since beating Salernitana on 7th November. Since then, they have lost to Juventus and drawn with Udinese and Galatasaray.

With Genoa in poor form and languishing at the wrong end of the table, only three points will suffice for Lazio this Friday.

Genoa Preview – Horrendous winless run to continue?

Genoa have picked up just one win in Serie A this season. After drawing seven and losing nine of the other 16, the Griffin are just two points off the bottom. They have not won since edging past Cagliari back in September.

After that 3-2 win in Sardinia, the Red and Blues have drawn seven and lost seven of their following 14 league fixtures. Andriy Shevchenko took over in early November, but Genoa’s fortunes have yet to change. The Liguria club head to Rome having taken just one point from the last 15 on offer.

This will be another stern test for Shevchenko’s struggling side. The bookies are not giving them much hope, pricing the away victory at 7/1.


Lazio vs Genoa Betting Advice

When these two last met back in May, the pair played out a seven-goal thriller at the Stadio Olimpico. Lazio edged it 4-3, but Genoa more than played their part. The matchup in Liguria ended in a 1-1 draw.

Lazio have a good recent record in this fixture, winning four of the last six meetings. Genoa’s last victory was a 2-1 home success back in February 2019.


Key Facts – Lazio vs Genoa Betting Tip

  • There were nine goals scored across the two meetings last term
  • Only Juventus have won at Lazio this term
  • Genoa have failed to win any of their last 14 Serie A matches (seven draws, seven defeats)


Lazio have been in poor form of late, but Sarri’s troops have been tough to beat on their own patch this season. Only Juventus have left the Stadio Olimpico with maximum points.

In truth, the home side should be too strong in this one, and we like the look of the home win at half time and full time at 21/20.

Ciro Immobile has been on fire for Lazio this season, scoring 13 Serie A goals. Only Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic has scored more in Italy’s top tier. Immobile is priced at 13/5 to notch first here.
