Napoli vs Lazio Preview

Napoli vs Lazio

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio San Paolo

Date: 10th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

This game sees two of the Serie A top four teams meet with each team having different compelling reasons to clinch the win.

Napoli are having to prove every match day that they can beat Juventus for this league title and nothing but a win will guarantee that they remain on top of the league table when this weekend’s matches have been completed.

Napoli are already the first team to challenge Juventus’ dominance of the Italian game for this long.

They have both dropped just 19 points all season and have also recorded a combined 119 points total.

With Lazio currently struggling for form, they should be confident they can keep their winning run going in this game.

Lazio are looking to get back to winning ways after failing to consolidate their position inside the top four in their last few games.

They come into this match in search of their first win in four games and seeking to end their recent run of two straight losses.

Their last loss to Genoa was a shocking one and saw them miss the chance to go 5 points clear of AS Roma who are 5th in the league table.

They are now 14 points behind their host and they will look to upset the Naples side in this game to close the gap however slight it may be.
