Lazio will be welcoming Inter Milan in a home game at Stadio Olimpico (Rome) this weekend hoping to secure a win against the favorite Inter.
Simone Inzaghi having faced a 4-1 defeat at home with Atalanta with Felipe Caicedo being the only goal scorer for the home team.
Antonio Conte will be looking forward to seal the third win this weekend to maintain their 3rd place position in the Serie A and Lazio still lagging behind at 10th position.
Simone men are hoping to secure this weekend clash win against the mighty Inter, after an humiliating loss to Atalanta who played much better in the first destroying the Lazio defence.
The most like formation will be the popular 3-5-2 and 3-1-4-2 enabling them to high press from the wings and allow mid interception together with dangerous counter attacks from the two forwards.
Ciro Immobile and Joaquin Correa will be two strikers at the front with 5 mid-field players Lullic, Alberto, Leiva, Milinkovic-savic and Lazzari.
The defence will mostly consist of Strakosha (GK), Radu (CB), Acerbi (CB) and Luiz Felipe (CB).
Plays still in doubt on playing during the weekend clash include: Denis Vavro, Luiz Felipe, Senad Lulic, Silvio Proto and Vedat Muriqi.
Conte has been exceptional in his last away game thrashing Benevento 5-2 with Romelu Lukaku scoring twice, Roberto Gagliardini, Achraf Hakimi and Lautaro Martinez getting they names on the score sheet.
In their last 14 matches between inter and Lazio, Inter has won 6 times with Lazio winning 6 times with 2 draws over the 14 matches played in Serie A.
Antonio Conte’s are looking well prepared and on form to win the match with minimal resistance from the home team with Lukaku expected to silence Simone’s men.
Inter Milan will not play Radja Nainggolan and Matias Vecino with the form being in doubt for Conte the lineup will include; Handanovic, Skriniar, S. de Vrji, Godin, Brozovic, Asamoah, Sensi, Barella, D’Ambrosio, Lukaku and L.Martinez.
Subtitutes: Alex Sanchez, A. Bakayoko, I. Perisic, C. Eriksen and A. Bastoni. It’s difficult to get inside Antione Conte mind but what we are sure this game will be full of goals with Lazio expected to fight back against Inter.
The stats show either team being able to deliver the blow with both side showing their strengths and weakness. Based on the current form Inter Milan look the better side to win.
With Conte set to win with easy due to the fact he has a good number of players at his disposal and with Lazio with a large number of doubtful players who will miss out due to injury.
Inter Milan to win by a narrow margin with Lazio hoping to score, football fans will be thrilled to a dramatic match this weekend and we also expect Lukaku to score. We also anticipate over 2.5 goals to be scored during the full time match.
