Lazio vs Bologna - 20/05/2019 Preview

Lazio will face Bologna at Stadio Olimpico, in Rome, at Italian Serie A 37th Round. Lazio vs Bologna is the closing matchup of 37th Round with big interest after their previous matches at Italian Serie AReview our thoughts on this match here below. 

 

Lazio

SS Lazio still has chances to fight for a place in Europe competitions. They now stand at 8th place with 4 points away from 6th place AS Roma. This season is far away from the best one, however, they won already one Trophy by defeating Atalanta in the Final of Coppa Italia. Unfortunately, they lost both games in the 1/16 final against Sevilla without scoring any goal. In general, this season had its ups and downs and next season should be even better as looks like Simone Inzaghi found the way how to play with this squad. Lazio lost two last home games against Atalanta (and took revenge in Coppa Italia) and Chievo Veron in Serie A. So next home game they need to show their best football for fans as they should be in a great mood after winning the Copa.

Ciro Immobile had a very great season, however, now he is struggling to score a goal in already 6 matches in a row. He finishing the season with 14 goals and 5 assists this season. There are lots of interesting and talented players like Joaquin Correa, Luiz Alberto, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Felipe Caicedo. Unfortunately, next one more very important match will miss Jordan Lukaku and Valon Berisha due to injuries. Moreover, Stefan Radu and Dusan Basta will miss the next game due to suspensions.

 

Bologna

If we will look theoretically, then Bologna FC 1909 can still be relegated to Serie B. Bologna have big troubles this season playing away games, as they won only 2 matches surprisingly against Inter and Torino. Previously they had 11 games without wins in the road games. Now Bologna stands at 13th place with 5 points difference with the relegation zone. Most interesting, that Bologna won 7 of their last Serie A matches, losing only to AC Milan and Atalanta, and draw with Fiorentina after Siniša Mihajlović joined the club. So at the end of the season, Bologna played one of the best streaks in Serie A club’s history. Moreover, they can finish in the highest position for the past 6 years.

There are no special leaders in this team, but there are very experienced and young players who play beautiful football, especially under the guidance of a new coach. Unfortunately, Federico Mattiello will miss the game because of injury and Mitchell Dijks due to red card suspension.

 

H2H

In the last 5 games between these teams, Lazio won 3 times and twice finished by draws. Bologna at home this season already lost to Lazio with 2:0 result, although, had chances to score, but failed. Next match should be different as hosts look much confidently.
