Looking to put their Coppa Italia heartbreak behind them and widen their buffer at the top of the Serie A table, Inter Milan will make the trip to the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday night.
While I Nerazzurri’s 1-0 defeat against Napoli on Wednesday may have ended their three-match winning run, Antonio Conte’s men are enjoying what has been a stellar run in Italy’s top-tier, a run highlighted by a stunning 4-2 win against bitter rivals AC last weekend.
On the flip side, also embarking on what has been nothing short of a stellar run of form, Lazio open the weekend within touching distance of top spot after enjoying what has been a remarkable 18-match Serie A unbeaten run.
While the mood in Lazio’s camp might be continuing to skyrocket, Sunday’s hosts do hold a worrying record against the current league leaders.
Hit with a 1-0 defeat when they made the trip to the San Siro back in September, Le Aquile have lost five of their last seven meetings against Inter. A similar away victory for I Nerazzurri can be found priced at 2/1 with Paddy Power.
Who can stop Lazio?
Battling hard and putting in another rugged display away at European hopefuls Parma last weekend, Lazio’s 1-0 win has seen them extend on what has been a shocking run of form.
Enjoying their longest purple patch in recent memory and knowing that another stunning victory on Sunday could see them climb to the top of the Serie A table, Simone Inzaghi’s men have not tasted league defeat since the 25th of September.
Still sat in pole position to at least secure a Champions League return for fans around the Stadio Olimpico, there is no doubt that one man to keep an eye out for on Sunday will be striking sensation, Ciro Immobile.
Still sat five goals clear in the race to clinch the Serie A Golden Boot, the Italian marksman as already notched an outstanding 31 goals for club and country since opening the 2019/2020 campaign.
Also bagging four goals in as many appearances at the Stadio Olimpico, you might be interested to know that betting offers like Immobile can be found priced at 1/1 with Coral to extend on that tally this weekend.
Inter seek a response
While Inter Milan might have sent shockwaves across Europe after coming from two goals down to snatch local bragging rights off of AC last weekend, Antonio Conte’s men came crashing back down to earth in midweek.
Crashing out of the Coppa Italia thanks to a 1-0 defeat against an inconsistent Napoli at the San Siro, I Nerazzurri simply have their sights set on lifting their first Serie A title since 2010.
If Inter are to extend their stay at the top of the table, there is no doubt that the former Chelsea boss will be calling on the red-hot Romelu Lukaku to lead their charge on Sunday night.
Continuing to shine following his move from Manchester United last summer, the Belgian marksman has scored 25 goals so far this season, including three in his last two Serie A appearances.
Forming an eye-catching partnership with strike partner Lautaro Martínez, Lukaku can be found priced at 11/10 with William Hill to extend on his tally and find the net on the road this weekend.
