BOG vs LAZ Dream11: Bologna welcome Lazio to the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara for a Serie A fixture. Bologna is winless in their last 2 games with just 1 win in their last 5 games. They have just 6 wins out of 23 and despite winning this game, entering the top half of the table will not be possible as 10th placed Sampdoria are 5 points clear of them. On the other hand, Lazio can potentially jump to 3rd place with a win against Bologna and overtake the likes of Roma, Atalanta and Juventus. Lazio has had a week to forget where despite beating Sampdoria in the league, they slumped to a 4-1 thrashing in the Champions League, at home to Bayern Munich. They will need to put that behind and get on with the league immediately as a great chance to enter the top 4 beckons.

The BOG vs LAZ Today Match Prediction should be a win for Lazio but it will not be an easy ride. Bologna has taken points off of the likes of Sassuolo and Atalanta. The home-side has also scored plenty of goals and have 30 goals in 23 games but have also conceded 37 while Lazio has scored 38 while also conceding 30. But Lazio will be fired up about the prospect of entering the top 4 of the Serie A which will make it slightly more difficult for Bologna.
Most Likely Result: Lazio win
Ciro Immobile – Ciro Immobile has not scored in 3 games but keeping him quiet for long is not possible and he has scored 14 goals and provided 3 assists in 20 games this season. He is behind only Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku in the race for the golden boot.
Musa Barrow – Musa Barrow has been great for Bologna this season with 9 goal-contributions so far. He has created 42 goal-scoring chances, succeeded in 28 dribbles and whipped in 24 accurate crosses. Barrow also has 2 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 games.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – The starman in midfield, Milinkovic-Savic has 5 goals and 7 assists in the league this season and has a goal and 2 assists in his last 3 Serie A games. Milinkovic-Savic has created 34 chances and has completed 76% of his dribbles.
Roberto Soriano – Despite playing in midfield, Soriano has scored 7 goals and provided 5 assists. He has created 40 chances so far and completed 60% of his dribbles so far. Soriano will look to pick out the likes of Barrow in the final third and disturb the Lazio defence.
Luis Alberto – Luis Alberto has been a dark horse of sorts for Lazio and has netted 7 goals so far. He has created 43 chances and succeeded in 35 dribbles while whipping 21 accurate crosses. He also scored the winner against Sampdoria in their last game in Serie A.
Defenders- Marusic, Hoedt, Musacchio
Midfielders- Lazzari, Milinkovic-Savic, Alberto, Skov Olsen, Soriano
