Lazio is coming to this clash after a narrow 2:1 defeat in their last fixture on the road to Sassuolo, overly looking, being outplayed in almost every aspect in this one.
They opened the match perfectly, as they scored early in the 6th over Zaccagni, but as mentioned, were not appearing that confident, leaving the hosts to dictate the rhythm here. Not surprisingly, the Romans conceded two goals later in the 63rd and 69th simply appearing too passive for a better result.
Lazio is currently at 9th spot in the Serie A rankings, three points in deficit compared to the European-placed Roma.
Midfielder Pedro (17/5) is doubtful with an injury problem, while Milinkovic-Savic (16/5) comes back from the suspension.
Genoa finally managed to end their poor momentum last Tuesday at home against Salernitana when they did just enough to record a victory with a minimal result and progress further in Coppa Italia.
This was a much-needed positive result, as they haven’t tasted victory since September in Serie A, and are logically positioned at the relegation leading 18th spot, having only ten points collected so far in the campaign.
The guests miss midfielders Fares (7/2), Rovella (15/0), defender Maksimovic (5/0), with forwards Kallon (13/0) and Caicedo (5/1) being doubtful for now.

Lazio has good chances for an easy three-pointer, as honestly speaking, Genoa is visibly having problems and can not be considered as a challenging squad here. Even so, Lazio has some functions in their play, so this one comes as a perfect opportunity to regain their stability, and I honestly expect them to approach this one more openly, so definitely value stands with goals here as well.
