We have five games from Serie A on Sunday, and we kick off with one that looks like it could be a great starting point. Lazio are in the top six race, potentially the top four race, and are 7th heading into the weekend. They host Bologna, one of the stories of the season, in 5th and looking to maintain that.Lazio Form Guide
I think Lazio will be satisfied with what they've done so far, and the position they have in the standings, but when you look at some of their games, they will definitely feel they have left some points behind. A point off the top six, five off the top four, it's all to play for with 15 games to go in the season.
They've won three of their last five league games, including last weekend, and since that, they've also recorded a big win in Europe this week. They won 1-0 at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, a massive result, and that came on the back of beating Cagliari 3-1 in the league last weekend.Bologna Form Guide
I love what Bologna have done, the only question left for them to answer is whether they can keep it up to last a full season. They've gone four unbeaten in the league, and won their last three games in a row, so there's no signs of them slowing down just yet.
With 42 points, they're tied with 4th placed Bologna as we head into the weekend, and four ahead of Roma who are behind them in 6th. Last weekend, Bologna won 2-0 at home to Fiorentina, and that came on the back of an excellent 4-0 success over Lecce, so it's all been positive over the past couple of weeks for them.Match Prediction
A big game at the top, plenty to play for, and three big points at stake. I'm not confident enough to back Bologna to win this game, but I will back them on the double chance market, covering them to win or a draw here.
