Stadio Olimpico, Rome

The encounter between Lazio and Bologna is set to be one where Lazio looks to challenge to get a place in the top 6. Considering their triumph in the Coppa Italia final, Lazio will be full of motivation to cover up a four-point gap. They have recorded 4/5 wins currently and it's two games to go.

Biancocelesti will be looking to show their mettle when they do battle at Stadio Olimpico. Simone Inzaghi will be backing his men to put up a fight after disappointing displays against Chievo and Atalanta here. Lazio has been full of goals of late and will need the same performance in this crucial tie.

Bologna is not to be written off as they sit in the middle of a table, thanks to solid performances. It's three wins for them with a narrow defeat to Milan. They put Parma to the sword on Monday in a 4-1 victory which should gear them up for this encounter with Lazio. Riccardo Orsolini is currently in top shape and all eyes will be on him to perform. Bologna is not the best so far in terms of away points but goals should not be far from them.

Final verdict

With their current form picking up so much momentum, Inzaghi will be looking to continue the winning streak. However, expect that the clash is a low-scoring one with less than three goals at full-time with Bologna likely to go with a defensive set-up.
