Lazio retained third place despite losing to Milan last week, and while they’ll have been disappointed by the 0-0 draw with the Rossoneri in the Coppa Italia, they put in a good performance that should keep morale high.
Genoa has lost back-to-back games, but the defeats have been close, which seems to be a trademark of their football since Davide Ballardini took over. Now they will face the best attack in the league and could struggle to keep their fairly good defensive record.
Lazio should return to winning ways here but may have some trouble in front of goal as they will miss Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, while Genoa boasts the fifth best defense in Serie A.
