Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Lazio and Bologna face each other in a highly-anticipated game at Stadio Olimpico. The Biancocelesti suffered a 3-0 loss to Sampdoria in their last league match, but it has to be noted that key attacker Ciro Immobile was out of contention through suspension. Immobile returns to the starting line-up against Bologna, but the likes of Lazzari, Luiz Felipe, Radu, Proto, Vavro, and Quissanga are all likely to miss the match with injury.
The Rossoblu, on the other hand, suffered a 4-3 loss to Sassuolo on Matchday 4. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, and seeing that Ciro Immobile returns for the capital club, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Twelve goals in total have been netted in the previous three meetings between the two clubs. The likes of Dijks, Medel, Poli, and Skov Olsen are sidelined with injury for the visiting team.

Born in Valdagno, Italy on November 29, 1993, Manuel Lazzari is a midfielder who plays for Serie A side SPAL. Lazzari played for the youth teams of Montecchio Maggiore at the start of his football career and in 2011 he moved to Delta Rovigo.
After spending the 2011/2012 season at the club, Manuel Lazzarri joined Giacomense in the summer of 2012 and it has to be noted that he made 24 appearances in the league for the club. At the end of the 2012/2013 season the 174-cm-tall footballer moved to SPAL and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the club.
Manuel Lazzari had seven assists in 39 appearances for SPAL in the 2016/2017 Serie B campaign and, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the Italian elite division. His main position is right midfield, but he can play as both right-back and right winger if needed. Manuel Lazzari’s contract with SPAL should expire on June 30, 2021.
