Lazio- Week 16

Torino vs. Genoa

 

Match Date: 21 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio di Olimpico di Torino

 

Considered as one of the top picks of sports betting sites, Genoa’s undefeated run was halted by a rampaging AS Roma. It was their first loss in their last 6 matches, but its impressive performance in their previous matches saved them from humiliation. Genoa remains in the league’s top 5 and currently occupies the 4th spot.

 

Genoa’s present form serves as a challenge to the struggling Torino. The latter sports a winless form in its last 6 matches. In its most recent encounter, Torino was held to a draw by the newly-promoted Empoli. Such performance, obviously, has an impact to their present rank and if it continues, they might find themselves at the bottom of the league table.

 

Prediction

Torino 1-2 Genoa

Inter vs. Lazio

 

Match Date: 21 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

 

Lazio sits confidently in the 5th spot of the league table. The club just snatched a 3-0 win against Atalanta, which further strengthen their grip in their current rank. Apparently, their the online betting  favorite over Inter, which occupies the 11th spot.

 

But despite the differences in form, Lazio cannot afford to belittle Inter. The latter isn’t devoid of spectacular displays on the pitch and could readily threaten their (Lazio) 3-match undefeated run. Lazio should also remember that Inter has a winning tradition and going against them in their territory, may prove to be a difficult one.  There’s a possibility for the said match to end in a draw.

 

Prediction

Inter 1-1 Lazio
