Lazio vs Napoli 
Italy – Serie A 
Date: Saturday, 3 September 2022 
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET 
Venue: Stadio Olimpico. 

Lazio as well as Napoli are contenders to secure top tier finishes every single season in the Italian top flight. The last season Napoli had secured a third-place finish in the table while their counterparts for the day had to settle for a finish in the fifth position. 

As such they lost their chance to take part in the Champions League and this time around they will be determined to make amends for this miss. 

And it is only right that they have started this new season on the right note. Lazio have been unbeaten so far in the competition and in front of their home crowd they have a 100 percentage winning record as well. 

And it also needs to be noted that they have been continuing this impressive form for the past several months. Especially in front of their home crowd they have been a totally different beast as well. 

Meanwhile Napoli could almost be considered as the absolute best team in the competition this time around. Despite having a game in hand, they have scored the most number of goals in the competition and even have a 100-percentage winning record disregarding a single draw. 

Going on majority of head-to-head clashes over the years have had goals in huge numbers as well. 

Taking into account these observations it is expected that we are about to witness a high-scoring thriller between the two teams this Saturday.
