WITH THE LEADERS ‘CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE BACKGROUND. Lazio cost a lot for the weaker period at the end of November and December of last year, when they could not win seven consecutive meetings in all competitions. Especially in Serie A, these losses are very difficult to make up for, but not all is lost yet. Before this series of meetings, Lazio takes sixth place, losing six points to the fourth Milan, but the consolation is that they have one meeting in reserve. In turn, Inter, winning the derby against Milan (3: 2), jumped to the third position (eight points ahead of Lazio). Lazio has not beat Inter in Serie A since May 2016. During this time, these teams competed against each other five times and four of them were won by Inter. How will it be on a Sunday evening?
- Inter – victory over Milan probably came at the best possible moment for the charges of Luciano Spaletti. Inter not only jumped Milan in the table, but gained a lot of confidence. Before the next important meeting with Lazio, Inter coach said: Lazio is playing a great season. Simone Inzaghi implements his style of play, introduced a lot of quality in moving with the ball, based on the great technical capabilities of his players. If we do not play high enough, we can have big problems. We focus on getting the most important three points. Especially that we face the direct rival of the table. In the Inter team, Mauro Icardi, Lautaro Martinez and Stefan de Vrija missed the meeting with Lazio.
- Lazio – after winning in the derby over Roma (3: 0) Lazio won four points in two next games. In addition, in the event of a win in the outstanding meeting, Simone Inzaghi’s team will join in the good fight for Top 4 for good. This will be a very important meeting for the table layout. It will affect the achievement of our goals. We are entering this match during our good game – said the Lazio trainer. He also added: After this match there are 10 more queues waiting for us, but this is still an important meeting. We will need the best version of Lazio, which we could see several times recently. Now we have to find regularity in the match in this great stadium against a great opponent.
Forecast: in the last 20 years Lazio has won with Inter in Serie A on San Siro only twice! The team from the Italian capital won only 5 out of 13 clashes in the Serie A delegations. In each meeting with the leaders of the league, they played as guests, for example with Juventus (0: 2), Roma (1: 3), Napoli (1 : 2) or Atalanta (0: 1). In turn Inter won 8 of 13 clashes and only twice went down from San Siro defeated, and with lower-ranked rivals (Bologna and Parma). However, playing with strong teams like Napoli (1: 0), Milan (1: 0), Barcelona (1: 1) or Fiorentina (2: 1) could do very well. I think that the hosts will be triumphing in the derby rivalry with Milan will go after the blow and win a set of points. Suggested types for this match: double chance 1-1 (odds 1.88) / win Inter (odds 2.36).
