Internazionale vs Lazio Preview

Internazionale vs Lazio

Competition – Coppa Italia

Stadium – Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Date: 31st January 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

These two Italian sides have not had the best of times in the New Year and they will both be looking for a good run to the final of this competition.

Inter and Lazio need a victory in this game to help them build momentum individually, however, a loss for Inter Milan could be the end of the road for Inter’s manager Luciano Spalletti.

Inter suffered yet another defeat at the weekend at the hands of Torino to pile more pressure on Spalletti.  He now needs a good run in this competition to keep his job and he will be hoping his players can deliver here.

Lazio are looking to end this season inside the top four, but their bad start to the New Year has left them in 8th position ahead of this game.

The Rome based side were in charge of the top four race last year, but their back to back losses to Napoli and Juventus has left them struggling at the moment.

Their fans should ake some consolation from their performance in their last game against Juventus as they held the champions for a long period of time and only succumbed to defeat at the very end of the game.

Lazio has a poor record against the division’s top sides this season and Inter defeated them 3-0 at home when these sides met in Serie A.

Inter haven’t lost any of their last four meetings with Lazio.

Bookmakers have priced Inter Milan up as steady favourites to come out on top in this game while goal markets point to a lively cup affair.

Mauro Icardi is currently favourite with bookies to score the opening goal of the game.

This match gets underway at 20:00 BST.
