Lazio vs Genoa Prediction 18 January 2017

Tournament: Coppa Italia
Location: Olimpico Stadium
Match date: 18.01.2017 at 20:00

On January 18 2017 at 20:00 in the regular game of the Coppa Italia round of 16 in Rome at the Olimpico Stadium the local Lazio play against Genoa.

Lazio are one of the favorites of the Italian elite division.  In the current season hey show extremely good results and after 20 games played they are just 5 points below the leaders of the championship. The victory in the match against Atalanta in the previous game 2:1 was the second one in a row and the fourth one in the latest five games. In those matches Lazio outplayed Crotone 1:0, Fiorentina 3:1 and Sampdoria 1:2 drew Inter 3:0.

As for Genoa, they definitely have some problems in the current season. They used to be the strong middle peasants of the elite division of Italy bit now they are the actual outsiders of it. In the 20th game of the Serie A they lost to Cagliari 4:1 and it was their 4th loss in a row. Before that Genoa lost to Roma 0:1, Torino 1:0 and Palermo 3:4. Genoa started their way in the Coppa Italia two games ago. They have already outplayed Lecce 3:2 and Perugia 4:3.

The results of the latest five head-to-heads of the teams don’t show any obvious favorites. Anyway, the teams have already met in the current season in the first round of the Italian Serie A and Lazio won at home 3:1. Even though Genoa are not the most convenient competitors for Lazio, the hosts one lost one game of the latest 10 ones played against them. Last time Genoa won was on October 2. That is why they are the outsiders of the upcoming game, in fact.
