Lazio vs Internazionale Preview

Lazio vs Internazionale

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 20th May 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

The Serie A still has many determining games this season, but none would be bigger than this Champions League spot playoff between Inter Milan and Lazio.

These two sides are battling for the last Champions League spot as Italian teams are now allowed to go straight to the group stages.

Lazio had the chance to wrap up their top four spot last weekend after Inter Milan succumbed to a shock 2-1 home loss to Sassuolo, but the Rome-based side drew 2-2 against Crotone to remain within three points of Inter’s reach.

Lazio have been around the top four throughout the season and their impressive campaign would be seen as a successful one should they finish in a Champions League place.

Inter have not been beaten away to any of the top nine teams this season, but they need to win and not just avoid defeat in this game for them snatch the last Champions League spot.

Lazio will be without Luis Alberto and Ciro Immobile in this game, and that should give Inter confidence of shutting out the Aquil.

Inter’s away games have mostly been low scoring as they have seen 60% of their trips end in under 2.5 goals.
