Lazio vs Napoli Match Preview and Team News
Lazio is down in ninth place in Serie A and not in the best of form. They host Napoli, who is fourth in the table but lost in midweek. Lazio comes into this game having won only one of their last four league matches. Midweek saw them give away a first-half lead as they drew 1-1 at Benevento. That made it 13 out of their previous 14 league and cup games that have seen both teams score. They are three points off the final Europa League qualifying place and five behind the last Champions League qualifying position, held currently by Napoli. Their home form needs some urgent surgery with just one out of six home Serie A games won this season. That was a 2-1 win over Bologna, but the last two have been lost. Udinese and Verona inflicted those defeats, but Lazio have earned home draws with Inter and Juventus this season. Ciro Immobile was the best scorer in Serie A last season with 35 goals, and he scored the most goals in Europe, a great player who does not spare the opponent’s net. All praise for him. Sergej Milinković-Savić plays perfectly without a mistake, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy, and many clubs are interested in his arrival.
Napoli only has two away league losses this season. The one at Juventus didn’t actually see the game played, though, as they didn’t travel due to the ongoing pandemic. Four league away victories had been recorded in games they did turn up for. Then on Wednesday, Napoli lost 1-0 at Inter thanks to a Lukaku penalty that followed the sending off of Insigne. That’s only the second goal that they have conceded on their travels, and we can’t really include the 3-0 defeat at Juventus that was imposed on them. The loss ended a run of six unbeaten league games, and they are now five points behind leaders AC Milan. Diego Demme shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Hirving Lozano creates a lot of problems for his opponents on the right flank. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, he has fantastic dribbles, and the Mexican international is a real team leader.
