Lazio Cup Celebration

There is one Monday night match in the penultimate weekend of action in the Italian Serie A. It sees Lazio welcome Bologna to the Stadio Olimpico in what will be a night of celebration for the hosts having won the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.

Lazio can still finish in the Europa League places if they win both their remaining games and the teams above them slip-up. However, they have sealed European football for next season by winning the cup, so this is not a priority.

Bologna start the weekend with the potential of relegation still hanging over them. If other results go their way on Saturday and Sunday, they could be safe by the time this match starts.

The home fans will be in celebratory mood following the 2-0 win over Atalanta in the Coppa Italia final. Despite the match being played in their own stadium, the allocation of tickets means not all fans may have been inside the ground that night.

That result means Lazio have won four of their last five games in all competitions, three of which have been in Serie A. Trends show they have won four of their last seven on home soil but have lost each of the last two against Chievo Verona and Atalanta.

Five of Lazio’s last six home league games have seen over 2.5 goals scored and they have kept just a single clean sheet in those six matches.

Bologna recorded a crucial 4-1 win over Parma last weekend and that result has left them on the brink of safety. A point will be good enough to secure their place in Serie A should results go against them.

Bologna have been in good form recently and trends show they have won four, drawn one and lost one of their last six Serie A games. There have been wins over Chievo Verona, Sampdoria, Empoli and Parma. However, all four of those victories have come at home.

Away form in the league has not been as good and trends show Bologna have won only one of their last six away Serie A matches. They have lost two and drawn one of their last three, with the defeats coming at Atalanta and AC Milan.

Looking ahead to the team news and Lazio will be without the injured trio of Jordan Lukaku, Valon Berisha and Stefan Radu. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic capped his substitutes appearance with a goal on Wednesday and he will hope to start.

Bologna are still without Mitchell Dijks who is suspended plus Federico Mattiello who is injured. However, Nicola Sansone and Andrea Poli are back from suspension and at least one of them should be in the starting XI.

Lazio will have had plenty of time to recover from the cup win on Wednesday and will want to deliver a good performance in their final home game of the season. Bologna may be safe by the time the game kicks-off and we could see an entertaining affair, with a home win and both teams scoring.
