Lazio host Bologna on Monday night as they look to finish their home campaign on a high note after a disappointing end to the Serie A season.

The Biancocelesti were three points away from a Champions League place at the start of April but have since lost four and drawn one of their last eight games, extinguishing any hope of returning to Europe’s premier club competition.

Having already qualified for the Europa League through winning the Coppa Italia, there is little on the line for them and 888Sport go 5/4 (2.25) that they claim their tenth win of the season in front of their own fans.

Bologna, meanwhile, need just a point to guarantee their Serie A safety and in a remarkable run of form with seven wins in their last 10 games. They are offered at 5/2 (3.50) with the draw priced at 2/1 (3.0).

Whilst the goals have been free-flowing in many of Bologna’s recent games, most of them have come after the break and so the 19/20 (1.95) on over 1.5 second half strikes looks the way to go here.

This bet has paid out in seven of their last 10 games and five of those have actually seen over two goals in the second half, which could be worth a wager at 16/5 (4.20) with 888Sport.

As well, those 10 matches involving Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men have seen a total of 23 second half go in, and the visitors are unlikely to take the game to their opponents with any real vigour as they look for the point that will ensure they are playing Serie A football next season.

A similar trend exists for Lazio in their recent fixtures. Their last eight games have seen 14 goals go in after the break, with over 1.5 second half strikes paying out in half of those matches.

With that in mind, the 19/20 (1.95) price with 888Sport on more than one goal in the second half looks the best value play ahead of this clash at the Stadio Olimpico.
