Lazio’s Ruthless Efficiency Put to Test Against the All Round Brilliant Napoli

Serie A‘s 27th game week with Lazio vs Napoli match. SSC Napoli prepares for a clash against Lazio. The Stadio Olimpico will play host to a significant sporting event on Sunday. Sixth-place Lazio will face third-place Napoli there. In derbies, Lazio’s balance is not very good. 

This is especially true when they play on the road. When playing at home, Lazio has only suffered a single defeat. Lazio will have their work cut out if they hope to beat Napoli. 4-0 was the final score in the fall match between Naples and Lazio. 

Lazio has the advantage of winning both of their previous encounters on this surface. Mental acuity and self-esteem are two benefits that come from it.

Lazio is seeking redemption after a disappointing draw with Porto in the Europa League.

In that match, Lazio had 23% of the possession and three shots on goal, one on target. Ciro Immobile appeared on the scoresheet as he scored the only goal for Lazio (19′). Despite having three chances to score, FC Porto could not find the back of the net. Mehdi Taremi’s goal in the 31st minute leveled the terms.

Maurizio Sarri‘s Lazio has scored eight goals in their last six games. But, unfortunately, those games have seen them concede seven goals.

Before their encounter with Napoli:

  • They have suffered defeat against Napoli in their second previous outings.
  • They have gone undefeated in their past five league home matches.

Napoli suffered a hammering defeat from the Catalan giants Barcelona in the Europa League in the most recent match. Barcelona upset Napoli at home with a 4-2 win. 

Napoli managed seven shots, 3 of which were on target. They had a ball possession of 44%. The talisman Insigne scored in the 23rd minute from the spot-kick, Politano capitalized on an error from Barcelona’s defense for the second goal. On the other hand, Barcelona dominated the play with 16 shots, 6 of which were on target. J. Alba, Franke De Jong, Pique, and Aubameyang helped the Catalans win.

In their last six games, SSC Napoli has netted 13 goals conceding 8 in the process.

Previously, SSC Napoli has done well.

They managed to beat Lazio in their last two league meetings.

They have won all six of their away league games.

Napoli lost their most recent league encounter to Inter. The Partenopei have lost back-to-back Serie A games since January. When they face Lazio again, they’ll try to avoid a recurrence with the hosts, not in the best form.

Lazio has managed to record a single win in four league games, with the hosts winning one game across all competitions. Three of Lazio’s last five games have ended in a draw. Napoli has won four of its past five away from the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

According to a standard guideline, winning stakes should favor visitors over others. On the other hand, Napoli isn’t as good as usual. While attacking, the visitors appeared a little exposed with the services of Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens, and Victor Osimhen in jeopardy.

Naples and Lazio have met six times previously, with Lazio winning two and Napoli being the better team four times.

A total of 19 goals tally from I Biancocelesti contributing six and Partenopei 13. There have been an average of 3.17 goals per game between the two.

These two teams last clashed on Serie A matchday 14 on November 18, 2021. Napoli defeated Lazio 4-0.

Since then:

  • Napoli hasn’t lost back-to-back Serie A games since January.
  • Last six games, Lazio has only won once.
  • Before this trip, Napoli had only suffered a single setback in their first Serie A away games of the season.

This suggests that the Lazio vs Napoli game will end in a tie, with the final score being 1-1 as predicted.
