Napoli vs Lazio
Italy – Coppa Italia
Date: Tuesday, 21 January 2020

Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples).
It was Lazio who got the better of Napoli when the two sides met a few days ago at Stadio Olympico. With the guests showing conviction even in their trips on the road this term, Napoli’s chances of exacting revenge are certainly looking bleak.

Napoli vs Lazio Prediction
Napoli breezed past Perugia in the round of sixteen of this competition, thanks to two unanswered goals from Lorenzo Insigne. The hosts hardly broke a sweat in that latter matchup and went on to finish the ninety minutes with a total of eight shots on target, as opposed to their foes who managed just three.
Be that as it may, the home team have not been faring well in the top flight, and are currently on a three-match losing streak as well.
On the other hand, Lazio are in fine form at the moment. The guests have been tasting nothing but success in their last six games in all competitions. Impressively, they have also stumbled just once in their past ten on the trot too.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have not been showing any signs of slowing down on the road either. They are one among the top four away sides in the Serie A and even took down reigning champions Juventus in the Super Cup last month in Riyadh.
In sharp contrast, Napoli have been at the losing end in four of their past six fixtures at home. Given the evident difference in form between the two sides, Lazio are sizing up to be the favorites in this one.
However, the guests have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last four trips to this venue. Taking into account that the hosts have shared the spoils twice here this season, the safest punt would have to be a double chance.
Furthermore, despite the promising run on the road, Lazio have looked shaky in defense. They have not kept a clean away from home since their 3-0 win over Sampdoria, way back in August.
Considering that four of their previous five h2h meetings here have also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together, count on more of the same come Tuesday.
