TIP OF THE DAY: Genoa – Lazio: Can Tudor awaken the sleeping Lazio fans?

Friday offers a slightly weaker betting slate compared to the past few days, but this day still brings us a plethora of interesting matches across Europe. This time, we have analyzed the duel that will take place at Marassi, where Genoa’s footballers will host Lazio, with the match scheduled to start at 18:30.

Genoa: The Griffins are shining this season!

Last season, Genoa played in the second-highest tier of Italian football. However, after great performances in Serie B, this team managed to secure a place in Serie A, which was, of course, the primary goal for this squad. When talking about the goals for this season, the focus was clearly on maintaining their status among the elite. However, as the season progresses and accounts begin to be settled, it seems that all fans of the popular Griffins have plenty of reasons to be satisfied. Currently, Alberto Gilardino’s charges, who is doing an excellent job at this club, are in the middle of the table, specifically in twelfth place, with a twelve-point cushion over the teams in the relegation zone.

There is absolutely no doubt that we will see the Griffins in the top tier of Italian football next season. To date, the team from Marassi has played 32 matches in Italy’s elite football league and achieved nine victories, twelve draws (the most draws after Udinese), and eleven losses. In the last five matches, the Serie A returnee secured one victory, one loss, and three draws, with the most recent draw occurring last round, where the team played to a stalemate against the favored Fiorentina, with that match in Florence ending in a 1:1 draw. Before that, Gilardino’s pupils achieved a very important victory away against Verona, who were in desperate need of points, with that match ending in a 1:2 win. Regarding home performances, the Griffins have played fifteen matches at their stadium and suffered only four losses, along with five victories and six draws.

In the first part of the season, Genoa, against all expectations, managed to defeat Lazio at the heart of the Olimpico, with that encounter ending in a 0:1 victory for the visitors, thanks to a goal from Retegui in the sixteenth minute of the match. After that, these two teams also clashed in the round of sixteen of the Italian Cup, where the Lazio side was better and won 1:0 with a goal from Genduzi. As things stand, it appears that we are in for another very interesting duel between these two teams.

Lazio: Can Tudor Shake Up the Laziali?

Lazio played fantastically last season, with the best indicator being their runner-up title, as the team finished second in the table behind Napoli, who unexpectedly claimed the Scudetto. All this was enough for the long-awaited Champions League qualification, where the Italian representative did not disgrace itself. Notably, the team from the Olimpico managed to secure second place in a challenging group that included Atlético Madrid, Feyenoord, and Celtic, ultimately finishing four points ahead of third-placed Feyenoord. In the first match of the Champions League round of 16, the Italian side beat Bayern Munich 1-0, which perhaps unnecessarily created great euphoria, only for the Bavarians to play brilliantly in the return leg and eliminate the Romans without much trouble.

As for this year’s edition of the Italian Serie A, it must be admitted that much more was expected from the current Italian runner-up. Currently, the team is tied for seventh place in the table with the same number of points as Napoli, and recently, the team from the capital of Italy got a new coach, as Sarri was succeeded by Igor Tudor, and as time passes, it seems that was not at all a bad move. It is true that Lazio lost in the city derby to Roma, with a 1-0 score for the Giallorossi. However, in his debut match at the helm of the team from Rome, the Croatian coach managed to defeat Juventus with a goal from Marušić in the final moments of the match.

In the last round, the seventh-placed team played another top match at their stadium against Salernitana, who are considered the weakest team in Serie A, and this duel at the Olimpico ended in a 4-1 victory for the home team, propelling them to seventh place in the table, which at the end of the season secures a spot in the Conference League qualifiers. In conclusion, it is certain that the Laziali will do everything they can to avenge the Griffins for the defeat in the first part of the season when it was 0-1, but truth be told, it will not be an easy task at all.
