Lazio hosts Bologna

Lazio hosts Bologna at the Stadio Olimpico knowing that they will top the Serie A standings if they record a win. At least for a day, of course. In our football tips tonight we will explain to you why we believe that the Eagles won’t make a mistake here.

Lazio are having a fairytale of a season so far. The club from the capital is currently 2nd in the league with 59 points, but only one point behind the leader and current champion Juventus. For a long time Lazio were not being able to get so close to the top, but now Simone Inzaghi and his players are doing something wonderful in the league. There was a certain period when the Eagles recorded 11 consecutive wins in the league.

Last week Lazio clinched their 18th win for the season. Inzaghi’s team didn’t have an easy ride against Genoa at the Luigi Ferraris, but they still secured a 3-2 win. Adam Marusic, Ciro Immobile and Danilo Cataldi scored for Lazio.

Ciro Immobile remains the Serie A top scorer at the moment and one of the contenders for the European Golden Boot. So far Immobile have scored 27 goals in the Serie A.

Bologna are perfectly places in the middle of the standings, being 10th in the Calcio with 34 points right now. The Rossoblu have a record of 9 wins, 7 draws and 9 losses, which so far is guaranteeing them a safe distance from the danger zone and the bottom three.

Last week Bologna added another draw to their record. Sinisa Mihajlovic’ team hosted Udinese at home, but only won a point after a 1-1 draw. Rodrigo Palacio saved Bologna’s point with a late equalising goal in the 91th minute.

In our football tips tonight we expect Lazio to dominate Bologna on Saturday, although the Rossoblu are not a bad team at all. It’s just the fact that Lazio are really strong at the moment.
