Napoli welcomes Lazio in an interesting game in week 20 in Italian Serie A.
Napoli is playing well and some of the best soccer in Italy, Napoli is very offensive with plenty of shots and scored goals, but Sunday they will be without five of their very important players, three due to injury, Hamsik, Mertens and Albiol, while Koulibaly, who is their best defender, and Insigne are suspended because of red card. At the moment Napoli are second in the standings behind Juventus with Inter breathing down on their necks. Napoli have scored 37 goals thus far and conceded 17. Napoli's top goalscorer is Milik who is expected to lead the team Sunday. Napoli have't lost a game at home yet and they have 8 wins and 2 draws.
Lazio is a team with a lot of potential and its' only a matter of time before they catch good form and start winning games. Lazio are coached by Italian soccer legend, Pipo Inzaghi and their top goal scorer is Imobille who scored 10 goals of their 28. Lazio doesn't have any important injuries but Marusic is suspended due to a red card. Lazio is expected to play with their top lineup tomorrow, and a very strong and compact midfield to contain Napoli's attacking soccer. Lazio's away results are not great, 4 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws but i believe they can add 1 more win tomorrow.
In head to head matches, Napoli has not lost in last 7 matches with 6 wins and 1 draw, which makes them favourits in this matchup. With all the injuries and susspensions I'm not sure about that sure about that and i believe Lazio will know how to take advantage of that. The odds on a Lazio's win are worth the risk so that is what i will pick here.
