ITALIAN football expert, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) casts his eye over the best bets from Friday night's Serie A card.
Lazio vs Genoa | Friday 17th December 2021, 17:30 | BT Sport
Genoa are facing one of the most difficult times of their recent history. With 10 points in 17 games they are seriously struggling to avoid relegation this year, and only Salernitana seem to be a clear level behind them.
The arrival of former Milan legend Andrji Shevchenko as a manager didn't have an impact on the team, as Genoa just got 1 point in 5 games from his arrival. Moreover, this roster is really lacking in quality, and if you add the numerous unavailable players they are coping with, it makes the addition even worse.
Given this context, this should be an easy win for Lazio. The Biancocelesti are not living exciting times, but their quality is simply too much for such a dismantled Genoa side. Their odds have drifted a lot, but with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic back in the squad, I am happy to back them winning at almost evens.
