This game could be the most thrilling match of the week as both teams come into this game in good scoring form.

Lazio fought very hard before beating Genoa the last time out but they had humbled AC Milan the previous weekend enhancing their reputation as giant killers.

They head into this game at home with a genuine chance of humiliating their visitors from Naples but that will be easier said than done.

Lazio did poorly when they faced sides from the top half of the table last season, picking up just 4 points from the 18 that were available and they lost all of their matches against the top 3 teams.

Napoli come into this game on the back of a commanding 6-0 win over Benevento the last time out.

Napoli will look to continue their fine run of form against Lazio as they took 6 points from a possible 6 against them last season.

They have also won the 3 of the last 4 matches between these sides.

Napoli are in a very rich goal scoring form at the moment as they have netted at least 2 goals in their last 8 league games and have scored 15 goals from their last 4 away games.
