Lazio and Napoli go head to head in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi final. Lazio with home advantae in the first leg will be looking to leave the Stadio Olympico with a victory. Having closed the gap on Napoli to just two points in the league table, Lazio are breathing down Napoli's neck for that third and final Champions League spot and you can be sure that this game tonight will have some fireworks. Miroslav Klose, Felipe Anderson, Candreva and Mauri all have both the talent and experience to lead Lazio to the Champions League places and to fire them to the final of the Coppa Italia.
Rafa Benitez though is the master of managing cup games and the Napoli manager will have a game plan for Lazio on Wednesday that is guaranteed. With a star studded front four of Hamsik, Higuain, Callejon and Mertens its hard to see how Napoli have struggled to score in some games this season. Napoli though are one of the form teams in the league having won five of their last seven which included a 1-0 win at Lazio in January.
Because this is over two legs it is sometimes hard to judge how teams will approach these games. For me I think Lazio are going to go all out for the win here and I think they will get it. Lazio are coming into form at the right time and with a Champions League place to fight for and a place in the Cup final at take here I think we see Lazio put in a big performance.
