Inter Milan vs Lazio
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milano.
Inter host Lazio in the derby of the Matchday No 22 on Sunday evening at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. The hosts will be hoping to continue the hunt for fierce local rivals Milan at the top of the Serie A standings. They are still two points short despite winning back-to-back games against Benevento and Fiorentina.
Nerazzurri will enter the clash off the back of the Coppa Italia elimination. They failed to break the deadlock in a goalless draw against Juventus, a result that has sent La Vecchia Signora to the grand final given that I Bianconeri won the first leg 1-2 in Milano.
Lazio’s players should thus come into this tie in a better physical condition. They have not been in action in mid-week. They have been in a great form lately, winning six in a row in Serie A. The latest of successes for Simone Inzaghi and his troops came against Cagliari when Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ciro Immobile combination secured I Biancocelesti an important three-pointer.
Inter Milan vs Lazio Head-to-head
- Lazio have been the more successful side in the most recent head to head history.
- I Biancocelesti won three, drew one, and lost just one of the last five clashes against I Nerazzurri.
- This term’s meeting, played in early-October last year, ended in a 1-1 draw at Stadio Olimpico.
Inter Milan vs Lazio Prediction
Although Inter are in a desperate need for points to keep ground on Milan atop the league standings, we can by no means see the value in the home win pick at the odds of 1-75.
Lazio’s players will be fresher ahead of the tie, they head into it encouraged by the six-win run in Serie A, and they lost just one of the last five games against I Nerazzurri.
Since just one of the last five head to head games offered three or more goals, we will back the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 2.10 odds. Lazio are priced up at the 2.00 odds not to lose the tie.
