Genoa vs Lazio

, KO: 17:30 Apr 19, 2024, Stadio Communale Luigi Ferraris
Lazio

Lazio will be looking to breathe new life into their European push as they travel to Genoa for a Friday night Serie A fixture. The capital club have claimed some key wins on their travels lately but with Genoa plagued by too many draws lately, another stalemate could be on the cards.

Genoa head into Friday’s clash off the back of a 1-1 draw at Fiorentina in their previous Serie A fixture. They struck first through Albert Gudmundsson but failed to hold on and were pegged back just after the break.

That result means Genoa have now picked up just one win from their last six Serie A matches. They are currently 12th on the table and will be looking to secure a top half finish in the final weeks of the season.

One problem with Genoa is that they have been plagued by too many draws having been held three times in their last four matches. It is a similar situation at home as they have won two of their last nine matches in front of their fans, playing out five draws in that run.

Lazio were in rampant mood last time out in Serie A as they ran out 4-1 winners over Salernitana. Felipe Anderson netted a brace while Matias Vecino and Gustav Isaksen were also on target.

That was a much needed win for Lazio, who had lost their last two fixtures across all competitions. They remain in the hunt for a European finish, sitting seventh on the table, one point off sixth placed Atalanta.

Lazio have shown some flashes on their recent travels, winning five of their last eight Serie A away matches. However, they have lost two of the last three in that run and were beaten 1-0 by Roma in their previous fixture on the road.

How the bookies view it

Lazio have a slight edge among the bookies and are priced at 13/8 by bet365 to claim the win. A victory for Genoa is valued at 19/10 by BoyleSports while a draw is set at odds of 11/5 by William Hill.

Head to head

Lazio have a 20-13 advantage with seven draws from 30 previous matches against Genoa. Both teams have claimed two wins each from the last four meetings, with Lazio earning a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch

Albert Gudmundsson will be the one to watch for Genoa after netting his 13th Serie A goal of the season at Fiorentina. The striker has also been on target in his last three matches and is priced at 3/1 by bet365 to maintain his scoring run.

Lazio often spread their goals across the team but Valentin Castellanos could be worth keeping an eye on. The striker is likely to continue in place of the injured Ciro Immobile and is priced at 5/2 by bet365 to get on the score sheet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Genoa and Lazio generally know their way to goal and both teams could be backed to score at 21/20 by William Hill. There were over 3.5 goals in Lazio’s previous fixture and a repeat is priced at 19/5 by BetVictor while bet365 is offering 6/4 for over 2.5 goals.

There have been more goals after the break in four of Genoa’s last five matches and a similar pattern is priced 5/4 by Paddy Power.
