As a fresh season of the Italian Serie A gets underway, Bologna FC travels to the capital city of Rome for a difficult fixture against Lazio.
Lazio has seen quite a few departures from its squad during the pre-season transfer window. Joaquin Correa made a move to Inter, while Vedat Muriqi has joined Mallorca. Denis Vavro will play for Copenhagen this season. Players like Strakosha and Luiz Filipe too have been released after the end of their contracts.
However, it is not all bad news, as Maurizio Sarri has spent close to 30 million pounds to get in fresh talent in the form of Marcos Antonio, Luis Maximiano, Nicolo Casale, and Mattia Zaccagni. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ciro Immobile have decided to remain in the club, much to the relief of fans. Lazio is winless in its last 3 friendlies, losing against Genoa, and more recently against Valladolid by the way of penalties.
Despite the exit of his star players, Aaron Hickey and Arthur Theate, Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has been slightly slow in signing up quality players. Other exits from the club include Mattias Svanberg and Cesar Falletti. To replace them, Bologna has brought in Michel Aebischer, Lewis Ferguson, and Matteo Angeli. Bologna was rather inconsistent in the previous season and finished at a rather disappointing 13th place. Bologna has never finished higher than the 10th spot in the past decade, and Mihajlovic will be looking to turn things around in this season.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Lazio Roma vs Bologna F. C. Serie A. The match is going to be played at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome, on 14th August 2022.
Mohamed Fares will be missing this game for Lazio, while Nicolo Casale will be serving a suspension. Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro and Francesco Acerbi are doubtful for this match.
As for the visitors, the only missing player is likely to be Lewis Ferguson, who is suspended. Mihajlovic has a fully fit squad available for selection.
Lazio finished 5th in the last season, missing a Champions League spot by 6 points. Sarri will definitely gun for a top 4 finish this time around, and he definitely has a better squad on paper. Lazio has won each of its last 3 home games against Bologna, and we expect them to continue this streak.
Bet on a Lazio win.
4 of the last 6 head to head meets between the two clubs have produced a score of over 2.5. Each of the last 3 games for Bologna and 3 of the last 5 matches for Lazio too have produced at least 3 goals. We are therefore expecting a high-scoring game at Stadio Olimpico.
Ciro Immobile has won the Capocannoniere in 4 seasons, including for the last season, when he scored 27 goals. He will be looking to get equal with Gunnar Nordahl, who has won it for a record 5 times, and we are backing him to get going in the first game itself.
