[Serie A] Lazio - Inter Milan Prediction

Hosting Inter Milan at the Stadio Olimpico, Lazio has a special guest.  Simone Inzaghi finally returned to the Italian Capital with enemy status.

Inzaghi is arguably a living legend for Lazio, since becoming a player who made 196 appearances with 55 goals and 5 assists.

After retired, Simone Inzaghi continued his career as a coach at the Lazio primavera team until in 2016 he was appointed as a replacement coach for the sacked Stefano Pioli.

Until the beginning of the 2020/21 season, Simone Inzaghi finally chose to leave to manage Inter Milan, which was left by Antonio Conte after winning the Scudetto.

During his time in charge of Lazio, Filippo Inzaghi's younger brother managed to present 3 trophies, namely 2 Italian Super Cups and 1 Coppa Italia.

This is Simone Inzaghi's first meeting with Lazio as opponents on the pitch.  It will be very interesting how later the Lazio fans will welcome the former coach.

The match is predicted to be very interesting because both teams want to stay at the top of the 2021/22 Italian League standings.

The Nerazzurri are currently in 3rd place in the standings with 17 points, while Aquile is in 6th place with 11 points.

Inter Milan, who is unbeaten in the 2021/2022 Italian Serie A, is determined to continue its positive trend, while Lazio must bounce back from a painful 0-3 defeat to Bologna in the last game.

Inter Milan will lose a bit of power because Lautaro Martinez had to be sidelined due to a yellow card suspension.

But Simone Inzaghi can patch it with Stefano Sensi who has recovered from injury.  Together with Edin Dzeko on the front lines, Lazio should be wary of Sensi because of his high mobility.

In the Lazio squads, Maurizio Sarri's squad still has not shown consistent performance.  Even so, they still have hope brought by the striker, Ciro Immobile who has already scored 6 goals this season. And Lazio's home record is also still unbeaten this season.
