After an ambitious summer transfer window in their first season back in the Italian top-flight following automatic promotion from Serie B last season, Genoa have enjoyed a relatively successful campaign. They have enjoyed an impressive second-half of the campaign as they sit firmly in the middle-of-the-table.

Coached by 2006 FIFA World Cup winner Alberto Gilardino, Genoa have been difficult to beat in the last few months and their 1-1 draw at the Artemio Franchi against Fiorentina last week was their third draw in their last four Serie A matches. They have suffered just three defeats in their last 17 matches in the league since mid-December.


Last month, Lazio took the decision to part company former Chelsea and Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri, replacing him with former Olympique de Marseille and Hellas Verona boss Igor Tudor. The capital city club have stuck with a proactive and progressive coach, as Tudor is, as they build towards an improved campaign next season.

The Romans begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting just about tucked inside the top seven and the European spots. They have very much improved since the departure of Tudor with Lazio’s 4-1 hammering of bottom-of-the-table Salernitana last weekend meaning they have managed three victories in their last four matches.



Alan Matturro remains a doubt for Genoa this weekend, whilst the likes of Mattia Bani as well as Ruslan Malinovskiy and Junior Messias are unavailable through injury.

PREDICTED XI (3-5-2): Martinez; De Winter, Vogliacco, Vasquez; Spence, Badelj, Frendrup, Strootman, Gudmundsson; Vitinha, Retegui

UNAVAILABLE: Bani (Injured), Messias (Injured), Malinovskiy (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Matturro (Injured)


Italy international goalkeeper Ivan Provedel is among a long list of injury absentees for Lazio including the likes of Matteo Guendouzi and Ciro Immobile.

PREDICTED XI (4-4-2): Mandas; Marusic, Casale, Patric, Gila; Anderson, Cataldi, Kamada, Isaksen; Castellanos, Pedro

UNAVAILABLE: Pellegrini (Injured), Guendouzi (Injured), Romagnoli (Injured), Immobile (Injured), Zaccagni (Injured), Provedel (Injured)



Both of these teams intend on playing a front foot and more progressive style of football but neither of them have managed to that too effectively this season. Genoa, for example, have been ambitious off the pitch with 777 Partners as owners and there will be an expectation that Gilardino evolves their style. Lazio, on the other hand, have been far too controlling, which goes against the gung-ho nature of Igor Tudor’s football as the Croat attempts to shift things. With the intentions of both teams what they are, both of them scoring would appear a good bet.
