[Coppa Italia] Lazio Vs Bologna Preview

January 18, 2023

Lazio hosted Bologna in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia on Thursday. Both teams earned wins in their respective Serie A schedules over the weekend.

Lazio recovered from the blackout that affected both of their last two matches against Empoli and Lecce by defeating Sassuolo in an away match.

Lazio's focus will now turn to the cup, they have received a bye through the competition until this point, and it is a stage where they usually perform.

Lazio's Coppa Italia history is admirable, Lazio has earned six victories in the last 25 years for the Coppa Italia; their most recent one was in 2019 under Simone Inzaghi. However, they haven't made it past the quarter-finals in the last three seasons since then.

Meanwhile, Bologna hopes to cause an upset that would put them in the quarter-finals for the second time since the turn of the millennium. Currently, they only achieved this once during that period.

Bologna qualified for this round after defeating Cagliari before. And they enter this game with a higher spiritual level, after beating Udinese who were still in their slump at the weekend.

Lazio (4-3-3): Maximiano; Lazzari, Patric, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Milinkovic-Savic, Marcos Antonio, Basic; Felipe Anderson, Cancellieri, Pedro

Prediction: Lazio - Bologna = 2 - 0
