Crespo will probably start:) This is a 6-pointer as Bologna is one of our competitors for the 4th spot. But who I am really worried about is Chievo:(
Forza Lazio! :cool:

all they need for the last two games is "do or die" attitude.

Bologna is experiencing a slump in form. WE need 3 points.

..and our "friends" roma could live with one :D

We will know a lot more after this match. If we loose, it's bye-bye CL spot but if we win our destiny is in our own hands. The results last week went pretty well for Lazio so let's hope that happens again. With Crespo and Simeone back at full strenght and ready to play 90 minutes Lazio have got a lot of strings to play. The only real problem is Stam out with suspension. It remains to see who Zac will play on the right back.

In recent weeks Lazio's results has been good. Not overwhelming performances, but they haved taken the points neccesarily. Usually we struggle against Bologna, but there should be no excuse here. We need to win and it will take on hell of a fight. Crespo, Lopez and Inzaghi are all ready to play in attack and it is doubtfull if Zac will play two or just one striker. However, the most likely will be Crespo alone on top for this difficult away match.

This game is very special. If they are fielded, Giuseppe Favalli and Diego Simeone can celebrate a remarkable milestone. Favalli will celebrate his 300th game in Serie A and El Cholo his 100th game as a Lazio player. A big congratulations to both of you. :)

FORZA LAZIO !!

Serie A Preview: Bologna-Lazio
Bologna - Lazio | News Archive

Claudio Lopez and Lazio must save what is left to be saved (Allsport)
04/26/2002. Against all odds, Lazio are back in the hunt for a Champions League spot. A very disappointing season can still be saved at the last gasp, even if it will fall short of expectations.

And let's face it: the fourth Champions League berth should go to Chievo, who truly deserve it, if only for the moments of pure ecstasy they gave us earlier this season, when Eriberto and Manfredini looked like they were coming from outer space.

In comparison, Lazio have always looked sluggish and bored. And boring, of course. With Diego Pablo Simeone out all season, nobody has been able to spur this bunch of lazy millionaires to victory with decent consistency.

Yet thanks to their CL contenders' very erratic form, Lazio have been able to claw their way back up to the higher quarters of the table. What a change from the days after the 1-5 derby destruction by Air Montella and Roma. Some even spoke of relegation…

With the future still in the balance as Sergio Cragnotti has not signed a single player – or sold one of his team – a spot in next year's CL would look very sexy indeed to disgruntled players hungry for European glory. Bordeaux's Pauleta is a case in point…

How about Bologna? They have had a superb season by their own standards. Now their somewhat poorer form pushed them further adrift of the 4th place, which is a shame, as they looked to have booked their ticket for next season's CL well in advance.

Coach Francesco Guidolin gave a very simple and understandable explanation for it all: his players are toast! He must be angry to see that his team's slump coincided with Beppe Signori's return to action.

TEAM NEWS

In Friday's training session, it appeared Zaccardo was going to be given a role in Sunday's match against Lazio. The Rossoblù rising star scored in Rome's first leg to give Bologna a point. Behind strikers Beppe Signori and Julio Ricardo Cruz, midfielders Fabio Pecchia and Lamberto Zauli are in contention for a supporting place, whereas former Udinese ace Tomas Locatelli will be sitting on the bench and could come in the second half.

Alberto Zaccheroni could be coaching Lazio for the last time but one on Sunday. In any case, he will be looking to extend his team's good run to seven games without a defeat. He won't be able to rely on suspended Jaap Stam, nor on Sinisa Mihajlovic. After scoring in his comeback last week, Hernan Crespo should be featured from the start alongside fellow Argentine Claudio Lopez. Want-away Karel Poborsky will lose his place to Castroman on the right wing.

Bologna (3-4-2-1): 1 Pagliuca, 19 Falcone, 8 Fresi, 5 Castellini, 7 Nervo, 25 Brighi, 4 Olive, 23 Tarantino, 24 Pecchia, 10 Signori, 9 Cruz

On the bench:12 Coppola, 16 Gamberini, 6 Brioschi, 3 Wome, 2 Zaccardo, 30 Zauli, 11 Bellucci

On the bench: 1 Marchegiani, 18 *****, 3 Cesar, 14 Simeone, 20 Fiore, 8 Poborski, 21 S. Inzaghi

I don't think we will play with two strikers in this game. With the defensive approach Zac has been taking all season it is higly unlikely he will do it in an away game of this importance. I think it is more likely Crespo will play alone on top with Fiore just behind him, which has been pretty successful.

28th of April, El Cholo's birthday aswell ;):party::star:

soccerage's line up is probably right, though there is only one doubt and that's whether it's gonna be Liverani or Fiore in the "playmaker" role.

It's always tough to watch Beppe playing against us :(

FORZA LAZIO!!

Un grande applause for Favalli and Simeone, and happy birthday El Cholo :star:

I think we are capable to win the game, but history speak in Bologna's way. We were beaten there for the last 2 seasons, and they were one of the few teams to take away points from us last season where we were unbeatable when Zoff took over. That's why I will "with shame" predict a 2-0 loss with Cruz and Beppe :( scoring against us.

Well, Zac went for the defensive apporach again. :rolleyes: Although every three of them is fit only Crespo is on the field.

Line-up:

..............................Peruzzi
Pancaro.....Nesta.....Couto.....Favalli
Castroman...Giannichedda...Liverani...Deki
..............................Fiore
..............................Crespo

12 minutes played and still 0-0. Peruzzi had a good save in the 8th minute.

Half time, 0-0

After four minutes of injury time Lazio survived the first half. Bologna is dominating the match and went pretty close a few times and former Lazio star Beppe Signori should have scored, but missed out against Peruzzi.
Lazio was handicapped after 27 minutes when Castroman had to be taken off with and injury and two minutes later, Liverani got a yellow card.

Re: 27 minutes

Do you know if Castroman's injury is serious?

I hope the second half gets better for Lazio.

:depress: Six minuts is played of the second half and Signori scores against his old club. Apparently he tricked Nesta and was through one on one with Peruzzi. Bologna is up 1-0.

:depress: :depress: When playing with ten men Bologna still manages to score a second goal after 43 minutes of the second half by Pecchia. The results are not going Lazio's way this week.
