Simone Inzaghi returns to Olimpico as it is Lazio vs Inter Serie A, where the Nerazzurri look to continue their winning run. After a controversial match last season, a fascinating game is on the cards as Inzaghi takes on his former side. The Nerazzurri lost the match in Olimpico last year, but they managed to get all three points in January at Meazza. Inter are coming with a convincing win over Spezia after a rough pre-season and an average display in the first game. While Lazio had to settle for a point against Torino.
The Biancocelesti lost both their keepers in the transfer window. They brought Maximiano from Granada, and he had a nightmare debut against bologna. The young keeper got sent off in the first 8 minutes, and Provodel came in for him. They have also improved their defense and midfield by signing Romagnoli, and Vecino on free transfers.
Lazio vs Inter Serie A: team news, tactics, and prediction
The battle between Sarri and Inzaghi will be highly tactical and exciting. The former Lazio manager will have to find a way to stop Milinkovic Savic, who has scored five goals in the last seven games against Inter. He could bring Gagliardini as some reports suggest, or stick with his usual midfield. Darmian should start this game as Inter will have to maintain their defensive shape. Also, Dumfries can come in the second half to spark some energy if Inter need a goal.
Sarri could look to start the former Inter player Vecino in midfield ahead of Alberto to have more physicality. Also, Inzaghi should give Gosens a start as he can deal with Lazzari, who had a brilliant game against Bologna. Former Lazio forward, Correa could come in as a super-sub later on. The Nerazzurri will have to defend well as Lazio have quality in their attack.
Lazio can be lethal at the counter, and Immobile has already opened his account like Lukaku. But Inter have an upper hand with depth and quality in their squad.
Lazio 1-2 Inter Milan.
