Our free expert picks: Bologna to frustrate Lazio?

We’ve got more in the way of free betting tips for the weekend’s football over on our dedicated page. Remember to check them out when you’re done here.

With home advantage likely a factor, Lazio are the bookmakers’ expected winners on Sunday, and their battled-hardened talisman Ciro Immobile could be an option with merit in the anytime goalscorer market at 2/1 (3.00). The veteran, who scored the winner against Bayern Munich in midweek, has a 33.3% chance of delivering the goods again.

Hot tip – Bologna Double Chance

  • Bologna have claimed ten points from the last 12 on offer in Serie A.
  • Lazio could be jaded following their midweek exertions against Bayern Munich.

Other tips

Lazio 1-1 Bologna

  • Bologna scored once in two of their last three league meetings with Lazio.
  • Bologna have been averaging 1.0 goal per game on the road in Serie A this term.

Both Teams to Score

  • BTTS has also landed in four of Lazio’s last six matches in Serie A.

Player to watch – Riccardo Orsolini

Bologna winger Riccardo Orsolini is in the midst of his most productive patch of the season and the 27-year-old managed to score again last weekend in his team’s 2-0 win over Fiorentina. Orsolini has bagged five goals in his last five appearances in the league overall.

Orsolini in electric form

Incredibly, over half of Orsolini’s goals in Serie A this season have been plundered since January 14th and the dangerous flanskman is positively vibrating with confidence. Orsolini should be a menacing presence again on Sunday.
