Lazio is hosting Inter at Stadio Olimpico in a derby match of round 3 in the Italian Serie A.
Lazio has had a fantastic preseason, and they have started Serie A season with a nice win on the road, but in their second game, Lazio was a bad team and they looked like kids on the playground. Lazio was playing against Atalanta at home in that match, and they have had 60% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 82% of the correct passes. Just by looking at the stats, people could think that Lazio had a fantastic game, but it was the opposite. Lazio was sloppy on the defensive end, not head or tail in the attacking end, and whenever Atalanta attacked, Lazio was in huge danger. Lazio has lost this match 1-4 at home. With 3 points, 3 scored goals, and 4 conceded goals, Lazio is in 10th place in the standings. Caicedo, Immobile, and Lazzari have each scored 1 goal for Lazio so far. Marusic has added 2 assists. Lulic, Proto, Felipe, Vavro, and Muriqi are all injured, while Radu and Correa are still questionable. Lazio was playing well last season, but it looks like their struggles from after the restart of the last season are continuing in this season as well. Coach Inzaghi has a lot of work to do if Lazio wants to get to the Champions League spot this season.
Inter is in fantastic form at the moment, and even though they have conceded 5 goals in 2 games, Inter has scored 9 goals in said two games. With 6 points, 9 scored goals, and 5 conceded goals, Inter is in 3rd place in the Serie A standings. Lukaku is the leading goalscorer for Inter with 3 goals so far, while Martinez added 2 goals. Sanchez and Hakimi each have 2 assists. Vecino is the only injured player for Inter as of right now. In their latest Serie A match against Benevento on the road earlier this week, Inter was the better team with 67% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 7 big chances created, and high 91% of the correct passes. Inter got ahead in the 30th second of the game, and they have scored 2 more goals until the 30th minute of the game. In the 34th minute, Benevento has scored 1 goal, but just before the half time, Inter scored another one. In the 71st minute, Inter has scored another goal, and they have deservedly won this match 1-5. In my opinion, Inter is the biggest favorite to win the Serie A title this season, and it’s about time for someone to take the throne from Juventus. Inter came close last season, but I think they will get it this season.
The trends are evenly split here, but Inter is in better form, and they haven’t lost any of their last 8 games on the road. I know that Lazio could surprise us here, but I don’t see them recovering that fast from their terrible match against Atalanta.
