Inter will face Lazio at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro), in Milan, at Italian Serie A 28th Round. 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.
Internazionale has all chances to be among 4 best clubs in Serie A this season. Now team stands at 3rd place with 53 points, 7 points away from Napoli and with 2 points difference against 4th AC Milan. They play confident and strong football in Italy. However, they were kicked out from UEFA Europa League by Eintracht Frankfurt in 1/8 Finals. Two months earlier they lost to Lazio in Coppa Italia in quarter-finals, so this match can be great revenge for Inter. Moreover, Nerazzurri plays very good football at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza this season. In 13 matches they won 9 and lost only 2 games. Most important, that their defense is working almost without mistakes since they scored 21 and conceded only 6 goals. They saved clean sheet in 7 games as a host. Inter won 9 of their 11 last home matches in Serie A.
Unfortunately, several main squad players will miss the match. Stefan de Vrij and Sime Vrsaljko will miss the match due to injuries for sure. However, Radja Nainggolan and Mauro Icardi are still under question. This season Internazionale is strong at attacking set pieces, creating chances through individual skill and defending set pieces. However, they are facing troubles at stopping opponents from creating chances and aerial duels.
This season Lazio is playing unpredictable football. Although they stand at 7th position and have 1 game in reserve, they look very unconfident playing away games. Since the 2018 November, they won only against outsiders, Frosinone 0:1 and Bologna 0:2. Also, they won against Internazionale in Coppa Italia on penalties after extra time. Unfortunately, they were kicked out form UEFA Europa League by Sevilla in 1/16 Finals. However, they have all chances to fight at home against AC Milan for going further into the Final of Coppa Italia. The first match finished by draw 0:0, so now they need to stay strong in defense and score at least a goal.
Ciro Immobile is the best striker in the team with 13 goals and 3 assists. Jordan Lukaku will miss the match due to injury for sure and Valon Berisha is under the question. He missed several matches due to injury and suspension, but now he’s fit and ready to play Inter. The Eagles are strong at creating scoring chances, creating long shot opportunities, creating chances through individual skill and defending set pieces.
In the last 6 matches between these teams in different competitions, Inter won 3 times in road games, Lazio won twice at away games and only once they have drawn. Most interesting is that since the year 2017 hosts are struggling to win against guests. Moreover, both teams play very aggressively against each other. In 6 matches, they collected 7 red cards, which a lot for top clubs.
