Our football match prediction:
Both Genoa and Lazio experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their last league games. The Rossoblu were outplayed by Udinese at Dacia Arena (0-3), whilst the Biancocelesti suffered a 3-0 loss to Napoli at their Stadio Olimpico at the weekend. Simone Inzaghi’s charges are eyeing a place in the Europa League and Saturday’s football match against Genoa is of big importance for the visitors. Seeing that the hosts have been struggling at the back of late, we predict that the capital club will return to winning ways on Matchday 32. The Rossoblu obviously suffered a dip in form, Andrea Mandorlini’s men are on a four-game losing run in the league and they scored their last goal in the league in a 2-0 win over Empoli on March 5. The hosts head into the game with the lack of confidence and, taking everything into account, away win appears on the horizon.
