- Lazio won 12 of their last 17 Serie A home matches.
- Bologna lost to nil in each of their first two away games of the new Italian season.
- Lazio had their confidence boosted by a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in mid-week.
Lazio’s continental confidence builder
Following a ropy run of three games without a win in Serie A, Lazio were in need of a pick-me up and the Biancocelesti got just the tonic in mid-week with a superb 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
With continental endeavours shelved for another week, Lazio turn to domestic matters again on Saturday, and Simone Inzaghi’s team need a victory to pull clear from the lower reaches of the standings.
Bologna, who were beaten to nil in their first two away assignments of the new campaign, lost 2-0 on their last visit to play Lazio in February, and with their confidence rocked further from a 4-3 reverse at home to Sassuolo last time out, their current manager and former Lazio star Siniša Mihajlović will be fearing the worst.
With 12 wins from their last 17 Serie A games at the Stadio Olimpico, Lazio have long been formidable at home, and they look well priced to follow up their mid-week heroics with another victory at the same venue on Saturday.
Our correct score prediction backs Lazio to replicate their 2-0 February triumph over a Bologna team that have looked completely devoid of attacking threat on the road so far this term.
