Lazio Vs Inter Milan Tips and Prediction
In their third match on Roman territory, Lazio will welcome a familiar face back to the Eternal City after being held to a draw by Torino in their second match of the new campaign.
Inter, who are currently coached by Simone Inzaghi, will take on the team currently led by Maurizio Sarri.
The teams split the wins last year; Lazio triumphed following Inzaghi’s underwhelming debut in the opposing team’s bench, while the Nerazzurri took the January encounter at San Siro with a flawless record.
For the first time for a long while, Sarri will try to lead the Aquile to back-to-back home victories at the beginning of a season after they defeated Bologna in the 2022–23 season opener despite playing with just 10 men for the majority of the contest.
The opponents on Friday will likely be top-four rivals this time after Lazio finished fifth last season after drastically changing their style under new management.
The Biancocelesti are now prepared to take on one of their most difficult jobs of the year after going undefeated in their last three home Serie A games against Inter, winning twice.
Inter are preparing for a journey to the capital that should put their mettle to the test after two rather easy matches to start the 2022–23 season, in which they are trying to unseat their city rivals and retake the top spot.
The previous such run occurred under Antonio Conte, between February and April 2021, on the road to the title. Although they have won each of their last three away games in Serie A dating back to last season, they have yet to win four straight games under Inzaghi.
Given that Milan outperformed them on the road last season and went on to win the Scudetto, points gained away from San Siro may be crucial to their chances of winning the title in June.
Inzaghi’s team is confident that they can maintain their unblemished start and put pressure on their nearest competitors to play catch-up at the weekend after defeating Lecce and Spezia to make it 10 wins in their previous 11 Serie A games. They travel to the Olimpico full of confidence.
By building on the momentum from their first few games, Inter can break their recent losing streak against Lazio this week. Although Inzaghi and Sarri frequently engage in a tactical duel, we anticipate a win for the visitors.
