[Serie A] Inter Vs Lazio Prediction

January 09, 2022

The leader of Serie A's standings, Inter Milan, will host Lazio in the 21st week of Serie A Italian League 2021/2022. The Nerazzurri squad aims to keep the Serie A throne. The match between Inter Milan vs Lazio will take place at Milan's Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro).

Inter currently sits in the first position in the Serie A standings with a collection of 46 points from 19 matches. The Nerazzurri must win because they are only one point difference with AC Milan.

Lazio is in eighth place with a collection of 32 points. The Capital Eagles squad is to return to the European zone so of course aiming for victory in this match.

For Inter Milan coach, Simone Inzaghi, this match certainly felt so emotional. The reason is, last season Inzaghi was still coaching Lazio, which was competing as a challenger for the Scudetto title.

Lazio is now being managed by Maurizio Sarri, whose achievements have drawn negative attention. Sarri became the first Lazio coach to concede 37 goals in the first 20 games of a season since 1960/1961.

To win over Lazio, Inter Milan again strengthened their goal machine, namely Edin Dzeko. The Bosnian striker has now recovered from the Covid-19 infection so he is ready to field. Dzeko is likely to be paired up front alongside Joaquin Correa. Alexis Sanchez provides other options if needed.

Meanwhile, in the Lazio squad, coach Sarri does not have excessive worries about the condition of his squad. Only Akpa Akpro will miss the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic will start in a three-lined formation in midfield. He has scored five Serie A goals against Inter and is looking to continue that streak in each of his last four appearances against the Nerazzurri in the top flight.

Lazio (4-3-3): Strakosha; Marusic, Felipe, Radu, Hysaj; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Alberto; Pedro, Immobile, Anderson

Prediction: Inter - Lazio = 2 - 2
