Serie A preview: Lazio vs Inter Milan

Antonio Conte-Inter Milan transfer update Kante, Perisic, Kolarov, Eriksen, Tonali, Brozovic

Stadium: Stadio Olimpico

Lazio will host in-form Inter side in the weekend’s crunch clash.

Key stats:

Lazio have won two of their last three league matches against Inter Milan.

Inter have won four away games against Lazio since the 2014/15 and the last time they played out a draw at Stadio Olimpico was in March 2008.

Of the last 14 games, Lazio have suffered seven defeats with the loss percentage of 50.


As said before, Lazio’s form post the pandemic break is contrary to their brilliant first half in Serie A 2019/20 season.

Despite starting the season with a win against Cagliari, Lazio suffered a huge defeat against Atalanta at home.

Ciro Immobile, who was insipid in the last game, will try to make his impression in the Sunday clash.

Simone Inzaghi’s side has been filled with injuries with stars like Luiz Felipe, Senad Lulic and Joaquin Correa being a huge miss for them.

Possible line-up (Lazio)

Thomas Strakosha; Patric, Francisco Acerbi, Djavan Anderson; Adam Marusic, Luis Alberto, Lucas Leiva, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Manuel Lazzari; Felipe Caicedo, Ciro Immobile

Injured players: Stefan Radu, Luiz Felipe, Lulic, Correa

Inter Milan

Inter couldn’t have asked for no better start in Serie A this season, winning all of their two games. 

While the first game against Fiorentina turned out to be a nail-biter, Inter won comprehensively against newcomers Benevento last week.

Antonio Conte would be happy with the squad depth and the form of the several players – likes of Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez and Achraf Hakimi.

Possible line-up (Inter Milan)

Samir Handanovic; Aleksandar Kolarov, Stefan de Vrij, Milan Skriniar; Ashley Young, Stefano Sensi, Roberto Gagliardini, Achraf Hakimi; Arturo Vidal, Lautaro Martinez, Romelu Lukaku

Injured players: Matias Vecino
