Lazio – Inter Preview
Lazio faces Inter Milan at the Olimpico in a match from the 16th round of the Italian Serie A. Stay with us and these sure soccer predictions for this derby game.
Lazio are not having the best season so far. The Eagles are 10th in the Serie A standings with 21 points. This puts them just four points behind the 4th Roma, though – they are still close to the Champions League zone. But they must improve their consistency – Maurizio Sarri’s team won just one of its last five games in the league.
Last weekend Lazio made their third draw for the season. The capital club faced Verona away from home and only got a point with a 1-1 draw. Mattia Zaccagni opened the score for Lazio but Henry equalised for Verona in the second half.
During the week Lazio had a game in the Champions League as well. It didn’t end well, though – a 0-2 defeat against Atletico Madrid.
Inter Milan are leaders in the Serie A with 38 points won so far. The Nerazzurri are two points ahead of the second Juventus so they would like to keep this advantage. Or why not increase it?
Inter’s current form is much better than Lazio’s – four wins in the last five matches. Last weekend Simone Inzaghi’s boys faced Udinese at home and celebrated a spectacular 4-0 win at the San Siro. Lautaro Martinez, Marcus Thuram, Federico Dimarco and Hakan Calhanoglu scored for the hosts.
Inzaghi could make some rotations after the 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad in the Champions League. Lautaro Martinez and Nicolo Barella could return in the line-up. They both started from the bench against Real Sociedad.
That’s the sure soccer predictions for the Serie A derby between Lazio and Inter Milan at the Olimpico. Inter are favorites here, but let’s see what they can do in the capital.
