Serie A is back with the first set of fixtures of its 2022-23 edition as Lazio lock horns with Bologna on Sunday. The two teams have experienced contrasting fortunes over the past year and will want to win this game.

Bologna finished in 12th place in the Serie A standings last season and have been plagued by inconsistency this year. The away side edged Cosenza to a 1-0 victory in the Coppa Italia last week and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

Lazio, on the other hand, secured a fifth-place finish in the league table last season and have been fairly impressive over the past year. The Biancocelesti suffered a shock defeat against Real Valladolid in their previous game and will need to bounce back this weekend.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in February this year and ended in a 3-0 victory for Lazio. Bologna were thoroughly outplayed on the day and will need to prove their mettle this weekend.
