GENOA v LAZIO – Serie A
February 6 2016, Stadio Luigi, 17:00 GMT+0
Genoa is a very strong side and that is proven by last results. Even though they lost against Juventus, we must take into consideration a few things, the game was played in Turin, where Juventus only suffered 1 loss this season. Second of all the only goal was an auto goal by De Maio, all in all the game was balanced and it could easily end up in a draw. Other than that, the loss against Juventus was first defeat in 4 games.
Genoa managed to win against Palermo (4:0), Atalanta (0:2) and a draw against Florentine (0:0) can also be mentioned, as it is a great result.
The transfer market brought a few new players to Genoa, Alessio Cerci, Suso and Tim Matavz have all joined Genoa, and they will surely lighten up Genoa attack.
Another good news is that Genoa has no missing players going into this match.
The visitors had a bad start of the season, but slowly showed some good results, that brought them to 9th place in the league. The loss against Napoli (0:2) was the first loss after 7 games, and The Eagles deserve some credit for that. But then again Lazio seems as an unpredictable team. They can show some great performances, but then they draw against Udinese and Carpi, this is a sign for me that something needs to improve.
The Eagles will need to start this match without a key player, Candreva, who is also a top scorer for his team. Other than Candreva, Biglia, Radu, De Vrij, Bisevac and Onazi will all be sidelined.
I can see Geona putting up a good fight today at Stadio Luigi, with a full squad and morale in the team at it’s peak it will be a tough job for Lazio to win this one, especially without their top scorer and a poor away record of 3-2-6.
Prediction: Genoa +0
Odds: 1.89 Pinnacle
