Lazio News and Form
Lazio dug out a 2-1 win at Cagliari last weekend to keep their slim chances of a top-six finish alive. They need a win to potentially keep that going until the final weekend of the campaign. They haven’t been carrying great form on home soil though with back to back defeats at the Stadio Olimpico. They are W1 D1 L2 in their last four there in the league. That is part of an overall home record of W9 D4 L5 this season which they have posted there. Four of their five home defeats suffered have been against the current top four sides. All but one of their home wins have been against teams currently in the bottom half of the table.
Lazio have averaged 1.8 goals per home game this season and 67% of their home fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. In total, they have taken a clean sheet in 28% of their home games but home and away combined, they have managed just the one in their last eight top-flight games. Lazio are currently on a thirteen match scoring streak at home, while they have conceded 68% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures. Lazio have opened the scoring in 13 of their 18 home games. It hasn’t been the greatest of season from them, they just have to leave it all out there in this one.

Bologna News and Form
Bologna have put together a good finish to their campaign. This is a team which won just three games from the start of the season to the start of March. But now they are W7 D1 L2 in their last ten league games, home and away. So that has been a transformation from them and they have no worries over relegation or anything to be bothered with. Their overall away record this season has seen them win just twice on the road, but both of those were against current top seven sides.
Bologna have averaged under a goal per game on their top-flight travels. They have picked up a clean sheet in 22% of their away games. The two wins that they have taken away from home this season have both been by a one-goal margin. They have only taken the one point from their last three league games on the road though. Bologna have scored almost 60% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures and each of their last four league games have gone over 2.5 goals. Over the last eight rounds of league action, Atalanta are the only team in Serie A to have picked up more points than Bologna have.
Lazio v Bologna Tips & Odds
Who will win – Lazio v Bologna Predictions
Lazio probably should just be sneaking out the win in this one. They need to and even though the form of Bologna has taken a dramatic upswing, seeing them win on the road looks like a slim shot. Lazio haven’t been great at home, so it’s a Lazio to win by a one-goal margin that looks like a decent proposition.
