The Lazio team will challenge the Genoa team in a Matchday 2 Serie A Italy in Olimpico Stadium, Roma on Sunday, August 27, 2023. For streaming coverage of Lazio vs Genoa, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Lazio will be hoping for their first win in Serie A this season when they host Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico in week 2. The team from Rome suffered a shock 1-2 defeat to Lecce in their opening game. Meanwhile, Genoa also did not get satisfactory results when they lost 1-4 to Fiorentina at home.
Lazio impressed in Serie A 2022/23, as they finished fourth and qualified for the Champions League. However, they lost their mainstay midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who moved to Saudi Arabia in the summer. The presence of this player is very influential for Lazio’s midfield which now looks less tough and creative.
Luis Alberto, who has been the brain of Lazio’s game, has also not been able to adapt to the 4-3-3 scheme of coach Maurizio Sarri. Ciro Immobile, Lazio’s main striker, also experienced a decline in performance.
On the other hand, Genoa is one of two teams to have just been promoted from Serie B after finishing second last season. They are led by former star Alberto Gilardino, who played for Genoa late in his career. They also got the services of Mateo Retegui, an up-and-coming young Italian striker who caught the eye when he made his debut.
However, Genoa still couldn’t show the difference in Serie A, when they were slaughtered by Fiorentina at their own headquarters. They have paid a heavy price for the disinterest and quality of their squad.
In terms of head-to-head, Lazio has a big advantage over Genoa. They are unbeaten in their last 37 home games against promoted teams (won 28). They also won 12 and drew 2 in the last 14 meetings with Genoa in Italy’s top flight. The last clash between the two teams took place in March 2020, when Lazio won 3-2 away.
With these factors, Lazio can be fully optimistic about winning over Genoa to restore the confidence of its supporters. They can also score a lot of goals to create a spectacular comeback. This match is predicted to be fierce in order to win three points.
