Infuriatingly for their fans, Lazio have seen their last three competitive losses – including two in Serie A (SA) – come via a single-goal margin. They have recorded just one win this month in all competitions (W1, D1, L3), painfully failing to win 80% of their last five SA home games. Scoring first will be as important as ever for Lazio, especially with their last ten SA home wins all seeing them score first. They have also managed nine first-half clean sheets during these wins, and relevantly, the half-time score has been 1-0 (either way) in all five of Lazio’s league games this season.
On that note, three of Genoa’s eight H2H wins at this venue have yielded a 1-0 scoreline, with six yielding a single-goal margin. Overall, Genoa enjoy a good record as the away side versus Lazio, winning five of their last eight away games against the sky-blue half of Rome (62.5%). However, Genoa largely mirror Lazio’s form, with no wins in three league games (D1, L2). Additionally, they are travel-weary, going without an away win for 11 SA matches, including two this season (D1, L1).
