Lazio vs Bologna Prediction & Match Preview
Lazio vs Bologna
Italian Serie A
Date: 14 August 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
A tight game is in the prospects when Lazio welcome Bologna on matchday 1 of the 2022/23 Italian Serie A campaign.
Maurizio Sarri will be hoping for a positive start on Saturday after his team failed to impress in the pre-season friendlies. They not only failed to win the last three, but also struggled in the final third finding the back of the net just once.
Yet, fewer teams have scored more goals than them in the previous campaign. The 77 goals they scored was second best in Serie A with 27 of them coming from Ciro Immobile’s boot and head.
Bologna had a disappointing campaign last time and the 13th placed finish is the worst since they ended up at 15th spot in 2017/18. They had a dull pre-season as well and flopped while coming up against moderate European teams.
However the Coppa Italia win against second tier Cosenza could give them some confidence going into this fixture.
Lazio had a poor pre-season as they failed to win three games played against moderate teams. Scoring goals remains a problem as well with the team heavily dependent on the veteran Ciro Immobile.
However, Bologna are known to have a poor away record in the league over the years and their returns at this ground is nothing to write about.
Last season, Sarri’s men bagged a comfortable win in this fixture. But a lot has changed since with some new faces expected to make the starting line-up on Sunday.
The hosts have dominated this head-to-head fixture over two decades and must get all three points here. But they must be prepared for a cagey affair this time.
