One of the games of the weekend across Europe will see Napoli travel to Lazio on Sunday morning. Lazio come into this game off the back of a 2-2 draw with Rome in the Derby. Lazio led the game 2-0 at halftime and should have pushed on but they couldnt close it out and Francesco Totti netted twice to tie it up. Lazio have been playing excellent football recently and have won four of their last five at home and their last three have all been won 3-0. Dordevich, Mauri, Anderson are all chipping in with goals and providing Lazio with excellent leadership up front. Klose is coming in off the bench and all in all Lazio have been brilliant since a poor start to the season. This is a real test against a good Napoli team. Last time out when they played Sampdoria Lazio found a different gear to pull away and win, can they do it against Sunday morning?
Napoli have won only one of the last five away games and this is a big ask for the side after losing 3-1 to Juventus at home last weekend. With Napoli led by Callejon and Higuain there is plenty of goals in this team but Rafa Benitez side have struggled away from home and they really need to start picking up points against the teams around them or they will fall away from the Champions League spots. This is a talented Napoli side with Mertens, Hamsik, Callejon and Higuain but there is a chance Napoli could lose some of their attacking talent to the Premier League in this transfer window.
At 6/4 I am going to take Lazio to get the win here at home. Lazio have impressed me lately and I think they find a way to get the win here in the Stadio Olympico. After losing a 2-0 lead last week i cant see Lazio resting on their laurels here if they do go ahead.
