Lazio vs Napoli
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 9th April 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
Lazio and Napoli will take on each other in the derby match of the round in Serie A on Sunday evening at Stadio Olimpico.
Both teams have been enjoying a terrific form over the last couple of weeks and this will definitely be the match to watch.
The hosts could narrow the gap to Napoli in the third position to only a single point with the potential victory.
Biancocelesti have been superb at Olimpico lately winning each of the last three home fixtures against the likes of Udinese, Roma and Torino.
Simone Inzaghi can generally be proud on the job he has done with the team so far in the season since Lazio will also feature Coppa Italia final after going past the arch-rivals Roma over two legs.
Napoli won’t be in the cup final as they were eliminated by Juventus in spite of winning the second leg 3-2 at San Paolo.
Maurizio Sarri’s men have also been in a terrific attacking form lately netting three goals on three separate occasions in last four matches in all competitions.
Dries Mertens continued his spell of excellent form in mid-week when he was on target in a 3-2 win over Juventus. The Belgian winger will certainly be the main threat for Lazio’s goal on Sunday.
Lazio vs Napoli: Head to head
The teams shared a point by playing a 1-1 draw at San Paolo in the first part of the season.
Lazio have been slightly more successful in the history of head to head clashes winning 14 out of 36 matches.
Lazio vs Napoli: Prediction
The first thought coming to our mind ahead of the derby is the Over 2.5 goals bet because we just can’t see a scenario in which this match would end up being a low scoring one.
Lazio are also slight favourites because of their impressive form at Olimpico which is why the 17/10 odds offered on the home win are certainly a decent longshot.
