Friday will please football fans with two Serie A encounters, with the Lazio-Genoa match forecast on the pages of our resource. All odds and statistics for the match can be found at 1xbet v.83.
The Roma have fallen seriously short of the Champions League zone
Lazio are unable to fight for the top 4 in Serie A this season, the club is only ninth in the championship, trailing the first quartet by as much as 11 points. In the last matchday, Rome lost away to Sassuolo 1-2, their third defeat in the last five meetings. The team failed to win their Europa League group, missing out on Galatasaray; now the club will play against the strong Porto in the 1/16 round. At least two players will miss this meeting due to injuries.
Gryphons can’t be happy with their position
Genoa have not had the expected effect since the change, with the club under Shevchenko picking up just a point in five meetings. The defeat to Sampdoria 1-3 in the last round of derbies was particularly frustrating. “The Gryphons are 18th in the league, only two points adrift of 17th. They managed to pull off their debut win with the new coach, beating Salernitana 1-0 in the Italian Cup. Genoa have four personnel losses ahead of this clash.
As statistics show, face-to-face meetings between these clubs are productive, with at least three goals scored in 10 of the last meetings. Last season, the Romans won 4-3 at home and 1-1 on the road.
Both teams are playing worse than expected of them, which is why they need the points. The hosts are given the advantage in this meeting, because Lazio at least sometimes plays strongly, but Genoa has very few such meetings. The high scoring trend in their head-to-head encounters is expected to continue. We’re betting on the total of more than 2.5 goals.
