Napoli is hosting Lazio at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in another round 32 derby in the Italian Serie A.
Napoli is on fire as of late, and they have lost only 1 of their last 10 games while winning 7 of those 10 games. Thanks to this fantastic run, Napoli is closer to the Champions League than ever. Napoli is now in 5th place with 60 points, and they are only 4 points away from the Champions League spot. Offensively, Napoli is one of the best teams in the league with 66 scored goals, but their defense has been even better with only 35 conceded goals so far. Insigne is the leading goalscorer for Napoli with 15 goals, while Lozano added 9 goals. Mertens and Zielinski each have 7 assists. Ghoulam and Ospina are the only 2 injured players for Napoli at this time. Napoli was hosting Inter in their last Serie A game, and they were the better team with 56% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and a high 93% of the correct passes. Napoli got ahead by Inter’s own goal, but they couldn’t hold onto that lead, and Inter has tied the score in the 55th minute. The final result of this match was 1-1. I like Napoli, and I still think it’s a mistake they want to change their coach this summer, but who knows, might be even better for Napoli.
Lazio has also been in great form lately, and they are on a 4-game winning streak, while they won 5 of their last 6 games. During this 4-game streak, Lazio has scored 9 goals while conceding 4 goals, and they have climbed to 6th place with 58 points, which is the Europa League spot. Lazio was hosting Benevento this past weekend, and they were decent with 57% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 8 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Lazio has had a ton of chances in this game, and they even missed a penalty kick, but Benevento has scored 2 own goals, while Lazio added 3 more goals, and they have deservedly won this match 5-3. Immobile is once again having a good season, and he has scored 16 goals, while Caicedo and Alberto added 8 goals. Milinkovic-Savic has added 9 assists. The only injured player for Lazio is Felipe, and he will miss this game. Lazio could have done a lot more this season, and they bounced back nicely after their bad spell in Serie A, but they desperately lack consistency, and it will cost them the Champions League spot.
When playing at home, Napoli hasn’t lost to Lazio in their last 6 games. Both teams are in good form, but I would give the advantage to Napoli at home, but I will stick to goals because both teams are scoring a lot of goals, and they aren’t consistent on the defensive end.
