Lazio and Inter Milan clash against each other in this weekend’s most anticipated Serie-A fixture. This weekend is a treat for the Serie A fans as the four title contenders play against each other. In the first clash Lazio take on Inter Milan. The second one is much promising where Juventus take on Napoli.

SS Lazio had a mixed start to their Serie A campaign. They played two matches and managed to secure only 3 points. However Inter Milan has won both their matches in the Italian league so far.   SS Lazio will look to bounce back strong after a humiliating 4 – 1 defeat to Atalanta.

Head-to-Head

Out of their 36 meetings, Lazio have won 12 times while Inter got the better of Lazio 19 times. Immobile and Savic led Lazio to victory last time when these two sides met earlier this year. It is of no doubt that these two will play a major role in this fixture too.

Predicted XI of Lazio

Thomas Strakosha, Patric, Francisco Acerbi, Djavan Anderson, Adam Marusic, Luis Alberto, Lucas Leiva, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Manuel Lazzari, Leonardo Pavoletti and Ciro Immobile

Predicted XI of Inter Milan

Samir Handanovic, Aleksandar Kolarov, Stefan de Vrij, Milan Skriniar, Ashley Young, Stefano Sensi, Roberto Gagliardini, Achraf Hakimi, Arturo Vidal, Lautaro Martinez, Romelu Lukaku

Result Prediction

Lazio who were thrashed last week by Atalanta are likely to receive the same treatment from Inter Milan this week. Inter players are in red hot form, especially the attackers. They have scored 9 goals so far in two games already and would wish to replicate the same against Lazio.

On the other hand, Atalanta showed us how vulnerable Lazio’s defence is. Lazio definitely will have to make adjustments defensively to prevent the likes of Romelu and Lautaro Martinez from scoring.
