Lazio vs Genoa
KICK OFF: Sunday 23rd Sept 2018 | 15:00 CET
SERIE A WK5 | STADIO OLIMPICO
Lazio not yet in top gear but do they still have enough to see off Genoa?
This fixture will be fiercely contested with both teams all out to win. Both squads possess a capable attacking threat and have the ability to produce the goals.
Lazio eased past Frosinone in their last home game, and they will be looking to build on that result with another victory over Genoa. The visitors won at this ground on their previous trip but Lazio will prove tough to beat this time. That will be partly due to the Milinkovic-Savic factor. The fact is, Lazio have not lost to Genoa in a match where SMS was available. The Serbian was absent in Lazio’s only loss to Genoa since he joined the side but he’ll take part this time if he stays fit.
Genoa are an aggressive side and won’t make it easy. They were last on the road at Sassuolo which they lost 5 – 3. Genoa rarely goes down without a fight, and they will take the game to Lazio without fear.
Lazio has two away games to come against Udinese and Roma, and they will first want to get maximum points from this one. The omens will also be in their favour.
Key Match Facts
- Lazio has not lost a game to Genoa in which Milinkovic-Savic started (P6, W4, D2).
