Lazio Seeks Redemption in Home Clash Against Resilient Genoa

Key Stats
– Lazio boast a 37-match unbeaten streak at home against newly-promoted teams.
– Genoa conceded four times in just the first hour of their return to Serie A.
– Ciro Immobile has netted 14 times previously against Genoa.

Stadio Olimpico is set to come alive as Lazio welcome Genoa. It’s a fixture that could hold the key for both sides. The hosts are in dire need of their first victory this season after a jarring opening day upset, while Genoa are eyeing a reprieve from their own defeat.

Lazio’s Stumble and Aspirations

A surprise unfolded on the first day of the Serie A season for the Biancocelesti. After taking the lead with a brilliant strike from Ciro Immobile, Lazio were undone by two late goals against Lecce. This unexpected defeat in Puglia left Maurizio Sarri’s side, and their fans, in shock.

For Lazio, the 2023-24 season began with a lot of promise. Notably, Immobile’s first-half goal at Stadio Via del Mare was a bright spot. However, defensive lapses towards the game’s conclusion are now piling on the pressure for the upcoming clash against Genoa.

To further complicate matters, key player Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s recent departure for Saudi Arabia has cast a shadow on the team’s midfield. Despite this, there is optimism with the acquisition of talents like Daichi Kamada and Gustav Isaksen.

Lazio’s stellar record last term cannot be overlooked. The team not only finished as runners-up in Serie A but also recorded an impressive 21 clean sheets. Yet, with rivals reinforcing their squads, Lazio face an uphill battle to replicate or better last season’s achievements.

Genoa’s Promotion and Reality Check

Genoa, on the other hand, experienced a reality check in their return to Serie A. Alberto Gilardino’s men were swiftly dealt a blow by Fiorentina in a 4-1 defeat at Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Their only moment of respite came from Davide Biraschi, who managed to find the net amid the onslaught.

Despite the setback, Genoa’s Serie B campaign last year showcased their potential. Having secured a dominant second-place finish, hopes were high for a strong showing in Italy’s premier division. Summer signings, including the promising Mateo Retegui and Milan’s Junior Messias, provide further cause for optimism.

Star Players to Watch

Lazio will likely rely on their captain, Ciro Immobile. Boasting 14 goals against Genoa in previous encounters and maintaining a consistent record of scoring in the season opener for six consecutive seasons, Immobile is the man of the hour. Accompanying him in attack will be Felipe Anderson and Mattia Zaccagni, providing Lazio with a formidable front three.

For Genoa, eyes will be on Johan Vasquez and Kevin Strootman, both of whom are potential starters. Meanwhile, recent acquisition Ruslan Malinovskyi might be a wildcard entry from the bench.


1. Match Outcome: Lazio’s dominance at home, especially against newly-promoted sides, is hard to overlook. Historically, they have maintained a 37-game unbeaten streak in such scenarios. Further, Lazio have bested Genoa in their last three encounters. Taking this into consideration, an over 2.5 goals match seems probable with Lazio seizing the win.

2. Scoreline Forecast: Building on the above prediction and historical data, a 3-0 victory for Lazio appears plausible. We expect a strong reaction from Lazio following last weekend’s defeat and a comfortable success for them should be on the cards.

3. Goalscorer Spotlight: Considering past performances, Ciro Immobile seems poised to find the net at least once. His stellar record against Genoa is hard to ignore, making him a favourable candidate to score.
