*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Genoa picked up a useful point at Fiorentina last time out and a strong finish to the campaign could earn them a finish in the top half of the table. The hosts have lost only twice in their last seven runouts on home soil and Genoa could have enough about them to take points off Lazio on Friday.

Lazio have a 39.2% chance of winning Friday’s test according to the bookies, while our football betting tips for the game have recommended opposing the Biancocelesti in the double chance market.

Lazio edged out Genoa 1-0 when the teams met in the Coppa Italia in December, though Genoa defied the odds to beat Lazio in Roma when the sides last locked horns in Serie A back in August.

Genoa preview: Hosts could be unchanged

Ruslan Malinovskyi is injured and unavailable for Genoa while the hosts could also be without the services of Alan Matturro. A win for Genoa on Friday would push them to within seven points of Lazio in the table.

Predicted lineup: Martinez – De Winter, Bani, Vasquez – Sabelli, Frendrup, Badelj, Guðmundsson, Martin – Messias, Ekuban

Player to watch – Albert Guðmundsson

Albert Guðmundsson has been an impactful presence for much of the campaign for Genoa, though the Icelandic international has been in particularly immense form of late, netting eight times in his last seven appearances for club and country.

Guðmundsson to shine again?

26-year-old Guðmundsson’s confidence should be soaring after his recent purple patch and the in-form attacker should be able to cause problems for Lazio’s defence on Friday. Guðmundsson’s prolific surge could make him a useful pick-up in the anytime goalscorer market again this week.
