azio is at the fifth spot of the 20-team Italian top flight table with four wins in seven games so far this season. They are currently on a two-game winning streak and have won three of their last four matches.

I Biancocelesti is coming off a crushing 3-0 victory over lowly club Udinese on the road at the Dacia on Oct. 1, Football Italia reported.

Italian striker Ciro Immobile was the man of the match for head coach Simone Inzaghi's side as he scored a brace. His goals sandwiched Senegalese forward Keita's strike in the 54th minute, completing the visitors' three-goal conquest.

Immobile opened the scoring with a header off an assist by midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic two minutes before the half-hour mark. Keita then doubled the lead in the second half before Immobile netted his second goal of the game in the 61st minute.

Meanwhile, Bologna dropped a disappointing 0-1 game to middling team Genoa at their home field of Stadio Renato Dall'Ara on Oct. 2, as per ESPN. The match featured three red cards with two of them going to the side of I Rossoblu.

Bologna defender Daniele Gastaldello was sent off one minute before the halftime break after getting booked for a second yellow card.

Genoa then scored the lone goal of the match in the 77th minute with a close-range shot by Argentine forward Giovanni Simeone with the pass coming from Uruguayan midfielder Diego Laxalt.

From there, two more red cards were given, one for each side, as defender Santiago Gentiletti and midfielder Blerim Dzemaili were sent off at the 85th and 87th minutes respectively.

Lazio vs Bologna: Prediction

Bologna’s awful home record – which has seen them lost ten on the road – could prove to be costly here. Not surprisingly, the Rossoblu have difficulty keeping clean sheets away from their home ground and have conceded nine already this term. The injury and suspension crisis naturally will not help Roberto Donadoni’s side, and then there’s the fact that Lazio have conceded just one goal at the Stadio Olimpico.

Add in Immobile’s inspired form, and all signs point to a victory here for the hosts. It may not be like the 6-0 rout Lazio earned a couple of seasons back, but they should have just enough to see off the Rossoblu and make it a third straight win on the trot.
