BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Saturday evening, Lazio host reigning champions Inter at the Stadio Olimpico, as the visitors look to make up ground on league leaders Napoli at the summit of Serie A.
The Roman club has made a mixed start to life under new head coach Maurizio Sarri. The Biancocelesti are currently in sixth place in the table, trailing their third-place opponents by six points in the standings.
After winning their opening two league matches, Sarri’s team have now won just one of their last five games in Serie A. Before the international break, the home team suffered a 3-0 defeat at Bologna. The result means that Lazio have yet to keep a clean sheet in Serie A this season.
One major positive for Sarri’s team is their recent home record in Serie A, as they are now 16 matches unbeaten on home soil in the Italian top-flight, having recorded an impressive 14 wins.
Simone Inzaghi has enjoyed a solid start to life with the Nerazzurri. The men from Milan are unbeaten in their seven Serie A matches this season, having recorded five wins in the process. Before the international break, the visitors recorded a 2-1 win at Sassuolo.
Despite the solid start to the league campaign, the Nerazzurri have already slipped four points behind Napoli, who have started their Serie A campaign with seven straight victories.
Inter are four games unbeaten away from home in the Italian top-flight, having picked up three wins and a draw, with the latter coming at Atalanta. The visitors have also scored at least two goals in each of those wins on their travels.
Lazio are without Francesco Acerbi due to suspension, while star striker Ciro Immobile could also miss out due to a thigh issue.
Inter look set to be without Stefano Sensi, but have no new injury problems.
This could be another close encounter. However, we fancy Inter to end Lazio’s long recent unbeaten run on home soil in Serie A and record a win in a high-scoring encounter.
