Inter Milan vs Lazio
Date: Tuesday, 31st January 2017
Kick-off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan.
Inter will enter the quarterfinal clash with Lazio in a much better mood since the visitors have surprisingly dropped the ball against Chievo last weekend. It was the second defeat in a row for Simone Inzaghi and his men who will have a very difficult task to avoid the third, since they are travailing to Giuseppe Meazza to face in-form Inter side. Biancocelesti dominated the pitch in the match with Chievo on Sunday afternoon from the very first whistle, but they failed to find the net from numerous goal scoring opportunities only to be punished with the 90th minute goal from Roberto Inglese.
Inter are in the amazing streak of nine consecutive victories in all competitions which got them to the 4th position in Serie A. The latest of the successes for Stefano Pioli’s men came on Saturday evening when Nerazzurri claimed a commanding 3-0 win over the rock-bottomed Pescara thanks to goals fropm D’Ambrosio, Joao Mario and Martins.
Inter Milan vs Lazio: Head-to-Head Stats
Lazio have a slight advantage in head to head stats since leading the tie by two wins as the teams will play their 54th H2H encounter. Inter were superb in the league game played midway through December when Mauro Icardi bagged a brace, while Ever Banega added another for a convincing 3-0 win at Giuseppe Meazza.
Inter Milan vs Lazio: Prediction
Pioli did not use his best striker Mauro Icardi in the last 16 round against Bologna when Inter barely went through after extra-time. We can expect to see the Argentine striker on the pitch in the quarterfinal and we’d pick him as the top option for anytime goal scorer at 10/11. The alternative betting pick will be BTTS because we can expect an open match between two attacking oriented sides.
