Inter vs Lazio - 31/01/2019 Preview

Inter will face Lazio at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza at Italian Coppa Italia. Inter against Lazio is the match with big interest after their previous matches at Italian Serie A. Review our thoughts on this match here below. 

 

Inter

Inter this season plays a very neat football, they are scoring and conceding less than usual. This season, Internazionale lost home only once against Parma in the fourth round, absolutely not deserved. The team shows good results in general and now at the 3rd position in Italian Serie A.  Between them and the first place is now a difference of 19 points, but this is a result of a fantastic Juventus performance.

In Inter there are several very good world-class players who are already wanted by the best clubs in the world. M. Icardi has been associated with Real, and I. Perisic can at any time move to London Arsenal, but most likely this will happen in summer.

Inter this season is very strong at creating chances through individual skills, defending set pieces and likely to play possession football. However, they are facing problems with aerial duels, defending against skillful players and stopping opponents from creating chances.

 

Lazio

Lazio plays quite well this year, but they could have done better because they have very good players in their team. This season, Lazio have big chances to take an opportunity to take part in the Champions League, because the difference between them and fourth place is only three points. Biancocelesti is great in the middle of the pitch because of skilled players like L. Leiva, S. Milinkovic-Savic and of course attacker C. Immobile. Lazio knocked out Inter at 2017 season at Coppa Italia by winning at San Siro with 2:1 results.

This year Lazio is great at creating scoring chances, long shot opportunities and attacking set pieces. However, they are facing problems with finishing scoring chances, avoiding individual errors and offsides.
