  • Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)

The club from the capital of Italy left for the World Cup break with a bitter taste in their mouths, as they were outclassed by Juventus in Turin (0-3). The impression is that Lazio was not pleased by the one-month respite. First, Lecce shocked them (1-2), a week later they lost the already registered three points, drawing 2-2 with Empoli. With that bad series of results, the popular "The White and Sky Blues" lost a step behind their rivals in the race for a place that guarantees the UEFA Champions League. However, they finally returned to the winning track during the weekend, as they celebrated in a very unpleasant away game against Sassuolo (2-0). With that victory, they kept the 4th place, so they made the mission called "Champions League" attainable again.

Bologna constantly struggled to find the right form at the start of the new season, but just before the break for the World Cup in Qatar, they built a great series of results, winning as many as five times from six games, with one heavy defeat against Inter (1-6). At that moment, they needed a break the least, but the team from Elimia Romagna had no choice. They did not start the new calendar year in the desired way, they lost the opening two games in 2023, but they should not be blamed, because their opponents were Roma (0-1) and Atalanta (1-2). After those defeats, there was a return to winning ways, as Thiago Motta's team recorded three very important points in a very difficult away game against Udinese, with a result of 2-1.

Lazio vs Bologna Betting Tips: Team1 to Win

If we look at the recent meetings of these teams, we can notice a very interesting streak. Namely, each of the previous six clashes ended with a victory for the home team, including the first one this season, when it was 2-1 for Lazio.

Bologna doesn't have good memories at the Stadio Olimpico for many years. They last won in 2012 and since then Lazio have recorded seven triumphs from 10 duels, and now they are aiming for a fifth consecutive victory.

In spite of the fact that Lazio "grabbed" all the spoil for the weekend, Maurizio Sarri cannot be completely satisfied with the game, since his team, before this match, tied three games in which they conceded at least two goals.

Bologna, meanwhile, cannot boast of their away record this season, having suffered six defeats from nine visits. The reason for their bad away editions "hides" in the inconsistent defense that is still without a "clean sheet" from 10 games, conceding as many as 21 goals during that time, which is an average of 2.1 per game.

Lazio is playing equally well at home and away this season, which is one of their main virtues. Although their results are colorful lately, the club that has lifted the Coppa Italia trophy four times since the beginning of the 21st century will want to start the competition in the best possible way. Of course, this will not be an easy task for them, because Bologna knows how to be a difficult opponent, but we believe that in the end Mauricio Sarri's chosen ones will catch all the spoil.

Coach Maurizio Sarri does not have many problems with injuries and suspensions. Namely, CB Mario Gila is still recovering from a foot injury, but his condition will be assessed ahead of the Coppa Italia.

What worries the Italian manager is the new injury of the captain and top scorer - Ciro Immobile, who was forced to leave the field in the 14th minute against Sassuolo due to an apparent injury.

Bologna Team News

The biggest problem for coach Thiago Motta is the absence of the team's top scorer Marko Arnautovic. The 33-year-old striker suffered a foot injury against Roma and is expected to be out for a month.

To make matters worse, Bologna will be without key player Nicolo Sansone for 3-4 weeks who broke his right toe in last week's away game in Udine. He should be replaced by Musa Barrow.

In addition to this duo, the club from Emilia Romagna will also be without Nicola Bagnolini, Kevin Bonifazi, Lorenzo De Silvestri, while the long-absent Joshua Zirkzee is on the verge of returning to the field.
