Match Preview

Lazio will look to consolidate their presence in the Champions League (CL) spots when they take on a stubborn Genoa side in Serie A (SA).
The hosts got a boost with rivals Inter Milan dropping points against Crotone (1-1) in this round. Despite their own 2-1 reverse against AC Milan in the last round, Lazio are third in the league (46pts). Keeping Roma and Inter at bay is the immediate priority and a win here will surely help.
That may not be straightforward against Genoa who have been plucky. Though they are just four points above the bottom three, they have the fifth-best defence in the league conceding just 24 goals in 22 games. However, they also have the third-worst goal-scoring record (16)!
Lazio are the top-scoring side in the league with 57 goals in 22 games, of which 28 came at home in ten matches. At home, in 12 matches in all competitions, they have lost only once (W9, D2, L1), including a five-match winning run coming into this match.
Genoa aren’t great travellers in the league, although they have lost only once in their last five trips (W2, D2, L1). What holds them back is their ability to score, with only Benevento (three) scoring fewer goals than Genoa (five) on the road.
Key battles: Ciro Immobile has 20 league goals to his name and has five goals in his last five matches.
Stopping him will be Andrea Bertolacci, who has been Genoa’s midfield general averaging 2.4 tackles this season.
Stat attack: Lazio have won by two or more goals in nine of their 14 league wins (64%) this season.
Genoa have not conceded more than two goals in 11 away games in the league, managing four clean sheets in their last five trips (80%).
