Inter Milan vs Lazio Preview

Inter Milan vs Lazio

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Date: 30th December 2017

Kick-off time – 17:00 GMT

Inter Milan host Lazio in arguably the biggest game in the Serie A this weekend.

Both of these sides came away from the Coppa Italia with contrasting results in midweek and Lazio will be looking to get the better of a recently poor Inter side in this game.

Inter Milan started this month at the top of the Serie A but things have turned against them and they are currently winless in their last 5 games in all competitions.

They had initially benefitted from not playing in Europe but their form has dropped as they suddenly find themselves playing 3 games in a week.

Another big issue for them has been an overreliance on Mauro Icardi for the goals they need and times when the Argentine has failed to perform has resulted in them also failing to win games.

Inter come into this game after playing 120 minutes of football before being ousted by city rivals AC Milan in the Coppa Italia.

Lazio are currently just two points off the top four.

The Rome based side will feel they can also get into the title race if they take their chances as any side in the top four can lift the title.

Lazio face an Inter side that has fallen from grace after starting this month as league leaders.

They won their own Coppa Italia game at the weekend and they will be looking to build on that victory here.
