Match Date: 21 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris

 

A certified online betting favorite, Lazio’s successful demolition job against Cesena signals an impending threat to its upcoming opponent, Genoa. The squad had a frustrating start in the season and the victory simply revived its burning passion to win more matches.
Genoa should be wary for while it is true that that they earned plaudits during their previous battle, this does not mean that they can replicate a similar result.

 

The contenders

Genoa

Although Genoa has not won a single match, it has nonetheless, managed to force a scoreless stalemate against an aggressive Fiorentina. Such result, despite generating a mere point mirrors the kind of defence that the squad employs.

 

Unfortunately, Genoa shall be missing the services of Facundo Roncaglia in the match against Lazio. He incurred a red during the said encounter. Unfortunately, many of its key players also got a booking in the match, which may readily affect their performance against Lazio.

 

Lazio

Lazio thrashed Cesena with 3 goals last week. The club seemed to find it hard to accept their defeat as they debut into the season and returned with a vengeance.

 

Antono Candreva was the ultimate hero of the squad when he gave Lazio its first goal in the said encounter. Other than that, he was also the man behind the crucial assists, which created more goal scoring opportunities for the team.

 

Possible head turners

It is hard not to expect some Candreva magic in this upcoming match. The poacher was simply unstoppable during the said match and no signs show that he will most likely stop soon.

 

Prediction

 

Genoa 0-2 Lazio
