The Aquile can point to a dominant recent record against their opponents as a sign for optimism, with seven wins and as many draws in the past 14 meetings, going back to a Bologna victory in March 2012.
However, only Roma can better Bologna’s overall record of 44 wins over Lazio in Serie A history and the Rossoblu hope to end a five match losing streak on the road with another three points in the capital.
Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side are in danger of conceding for a 38th consecutive Serie A match and a failure to keep a clean sheet would see them equal the fourth worst streak in the history of Europe’s top five leagues.
Lazio: Reina; Patric, Hoedt, Acerbi; Marusic, Akpa Akpro, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto, Fares; Correa, Immobile
Bologna: Skorupski; De Silvestri, Danilo, Tomiyasu, Hickey; Schouten, Svanberg; Orsolini, Soriano, Sansone; Palacio
