Monday night football from Serie A as Lazio take on Genoa at the Stadio Olympico in Rome. Lazio dropped from fourth to sixth in the table after results this weekend and will be looking to bounce back up to fourth with a win here on Monday night. While Lazio have been excellent of late in general they struggled last weekend and came up short against a relegation threatened Cesena. Miroslav Klose has emerged as Lazio's best attacking option after spending alot of the early part of the season on the bench, along with Anderson, Durdovich and Candreva Klose has proven time and again that class is permanent and form temporary. Klose will again lead the line tonight and will be looking for a win that will take Lazio fourth.
Genoa have struggled since returning to action from the Winter break. With five games played Genoa have lost two and drawn three. A win here though could bring Genoa from eleventh to seventh and Gasperini will be anxious to get a win. This is a tough game for Genoa though as Lazio are a team that has looked capable of breaking into the top three over the last couple of months. Genoa will miss Matri who left for Juventus in the transfer window, the striker was top scorer and having a quality season but the chance to go to the Champions and league leaders proved to be too tempting. Genoa got Niang in on loan till the end of the season and the enigmatic Milan star could provide a spark if his finishing can improve.
Lazio have been sensational of late and I just cant go agains them here. Going to take Lazio big on the money line and spread a little on the overs as well as I think Genoa will get on the scoresheet here but it should be in vain.
