Inter – Lazio, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PRECITION FOR INTER - LAZIO
Inter once again played a great derby and took the three points against Milan, although they entered the game as a slight outsider. This victory once again proved that there are no favorites and outsiders in such derbies. Overall, Nerazzurri had a lot of problems against far worse rivals during the Serie A season, while against the big teams they almost did not lose matches. Something like Liverpool in season 16/17.
Lazio, in turn, have significantly improved their shape. The Roman eagles have dropped out of the Europa League and now there is a lot more freshness in their squad. Some important injured players have also returned, so they continue to play at the top level and progress. They are comparatively away from the Top 4, but they have the easiest schedule so in one win here, their chances are greatly increased.
We think Lazio will not lose just for that reason. They are very well prepared for this match. They know they have nothing to lose, but they have a lot of games with teams under them in the standings, while everyone else will play derbies and lose points. The only very tough game that seems to be unlikely to win is the visit to AC Milan. Inter has always had one drop after a strong game and we expect this to happen now. Prediction – Draw or Lazio at 1.69.
