Inter Milan vs Lazio
Italian Serie A
Date: 30 April 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (Milano).
Inter Milan and Lazio will open Sunday’s Serie A schedule with a super-exciting Gameweek No 32 clash at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
I Nerazzurri will thus continue their complicated schedule after facing bitter rivals Juventus in the Coppa Italia semifinal on Wednesday night.
They can hardly afford a slip-up here while sitting two points shy of the likes of AC Milan and Roma who share the fourth position at the moment.
The good news for Simone Inzaghi is that Romelu Lukaku seems to have regained the much-needed confidence, scoring goals against both Juventus in the Coppa Italia and Benfica in the Champions League.
The resurgent Belgian striker bagged two goals and assisted for his team’s third in a comprehensive victory over Empoli on the road last weekend. Those who are chasing the anytime goalscorer market should not look further than him.
Nonetheless, Lukaku and Inter Milan will be facing the league’s joint-best defense here as Lazio have surprisingly been extremely tough to break down this season under Maurizio Sarri.
I Biancocelesti terminated their eight-game unbeaten thread last Saturday with the 0-1 home loss to Torino but they did not give up too many chances to the counterparts on the occasion.
Lazio have allowed just two goals in the previous nine Serie A fixtures. They are currently second in the league, sitting seven points above Inter Milan in sixth position.
Inter Milan vs Lazio Head-to-head
- The home court advantage has played a massive role in the recent head to head history between these two teams as home teams came on top in six of the previous seven encounters.
- Lazio picked up a 3-1 victory in the reverse game played at the beginning of the season in late-August last year in the capital.
- Each of the last four H2H clashes between these sides saw the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option coming in, while we’ve witnessed goals at both ends in each of the last six H2H matches.
Inter Milan vs Lazio Prediction
It is very interesting to see Lazio at the 4.50 odds to win here knowing they sit seven points clear of Inter Milan with just seven matches left to play. Also, I Biancocelesti have lost just one of the last nine league games and they have dispatched Inter Milan in the reverse outing in the first half of the season.
Once you factor in the fatigue Inter Milan’s players must feel after a tough clash against Juventus in midweek’s Coppa Italia tie, we have to take Lazio to win or draw double chance pick at the 2.00 odds.
