Lazio vs Bologna: Recent History

The last seven days have turned things around for Maurizio Sarri and Lazio, starting with their strong 3-1 win away to Cagliari last weekend, a much-needed return to winning ways for the club.

The Biancocelesti followed that up with an incredibly impressive 1-0 win over Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash, a result that could see them pull off the impossible and progress to the quarter-finals at the behest of the German giants.

Bologna have been in flying form under Thiago Motta this season and have won their last three consecutive league games, taking home all three points against Sassuolo, Lecce and Fiorentina. They currently sit 5th in the Serie A table with 42 points, five ahead of Lazio.

When these two teams met back in November, Bologna edged out a 1-0 win over Lazio after a 46th minute goal from Lewis Ferguson.
