Lazio vs Bologna

, KO: 11:30 Feb 18, 2024, Stadio Olimpico
Bologna

Lazio and Bologna square off in a Serie A fixture at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday with both teams still pushing for a European finish. The capital club have done some of their best work at home lately and should have the upper hand over Bologna, who are often erratic on their travels.

Lazio will head into Sunday’s clash with plenty of confidence after claiming a 1-0 victory over Bayern Munich in a Champions League round of 16 fixture. That was their second straight victory following a 3-1 Serie A triumph at Cagliari, with Ciro Immobile scoring in both fixtures.

The win over Cagliari means Lazio are unbeaten in their last seven Serie A matches as they have breathed new life into their European push. Maurizio Sarri’s men have picked up five wins in that run and are just five points off the top four.

The Stadio Olimpico has also been a fortress for Lazio, who are unbeaten in 15 of their last 16 home matches across all competitions, claiming 10 wins in that run. They also tend to maintain their defensive shape in front of their fans and have kept 11 clean sheets in their last 15 home matches.

Bologna have been the surprise package in Serie A this season as they are pushing for a European finish. They have played some eye-catching football under manager Thiago Motta and are currently level on 52 points with fourth placed Atalanta.

After stumbling slightly at the turn of the year, Bologna appear to have found their rhythm again, winning their last three matches. They claimed a 2-0 victory over Fiorentina in their previous Serie A fixture with Riccardo Orsolinni and Jens Odgaard getting the goals.

While things appear great for Bologna at the moment, their away form has not been up to scratch this season. They have picked up just one win on their Serie A travels this term but held out for a 2-2 draw at AC Milan in their previous away fixture.

How the bookies view it

Lazio have the upper hand among the bookies with a home win priced at 13/10 by Betfred. A victory for Bologna is valued at 5/2 with Unibet while 10bet is offering odds of 11/5 for a draw.

Head to head

Lazio have a 25-11 advantage with 11 draws from 48 previous matches against Bologna. Although Bolgna claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in November, Lazio have won the last three meetings at the Stadio Olimpico.

Players to watch

Ciro Immobile appears to have rediscovered his scoring touch for Lazio and recently netted his 200th Serie A goal. The striker has found the net in his last three matches and is priced at 21/10 with bet365 to maintain his scoring run.

Lazio have also been defensively solid, particularly at the Stadio Olimpico, where they have kept 11 clean sheets in their last 15 home matches. Mario Gila and Alessio Romagnoli should continue in central defence and can lead the capital club to another clean sheet at 9/4 with bet365.

Anything else catch the eye?

Given Lazio’s defensive solidity at the Stadio Olimpico, BTTS NO could be considered at 4/5 with BetVictor. The capital club have won to nil in three of their last four home matches and a similar outcome is priced at 13/5 with BetVictor.

Lazio have opened the scoring in three of their last four home matches and are priced at 20/23 by Coral to grab the first goal on Sunday.
