Lazio vs Inter Milan: Preview and Prediction

Lazio vs Inter Milan-Match Info- 1-May-2016 by LeagueLane

SS Lazio look to bounce back with a win when they host Inter Milan at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Sunday evening.

The 9th placed Lazio have suffered back-to-back defeats and head-coach Simone Inzaghi will be hoping to grab a morale boosting win against Inter. The Biancazzurri are 11 points below European qualification spot and wins in all of the remaining matches won’t get them there.

Inter Milan are fourth in the league and they have already booked a ticket to next season’s Euorpa League competition. They still have a mathematical chance of making into top three, but a win for Roma against at Genoa on Monday night will end those chances.

Form Guide

Lazio have lost in their last two league meetings and their form in their last six matches reads 2 wins, 3 losses and a draw. Their home form is also not that consistent as they had won 3 and lost 3 of their last six matches. Three of their last four home games have seen under 2.5 goals.

Inter Milan won 3 of their last 4 matches and their overall form in the last six league games read 3 wins, 2 losses and a draw. Their recent form is pretty bad in away games as they have won just once in their last 9 matches on the road.

Lazio vs Inter Milan: Prediction

Lazio are desperate to bounce back from consecutive defeats, but they do not have anything to play for. Head-coach Simone Inzaghi will be hoping that his team finish the season well.

Inter Milan have already secured the Europa League spot and they will be looking to play for the fans for the remainder of the season. Their overall form have improved in recent weeks, but the away form still remains poor.

The match is a tough one to call, but the recent head-to-head stats show that a draw is a rare possibility on Sunday evening. Lazio hold a strong record against Inter at home and coupling it together with the Nerazzurri’s poor away form, Lazio must go into this game as slight favorites.

I predict a 2-1 win for Lazio against Inter Milan on Sunday’s Serie A clash.
