Napoli - Lazio Prediction and Analysis
Another round in Serie A opens with a super clash between Napoli and Lazio.
These are two teams that are in very good form. And that's why the match is awaited with interest in the Apennines, and not only.
Napoli confidently march towards winning the title in Italy. And today's meeting will be another step towards their success.
Although Spalletti's formation has a huge lead at the top (18 points ahead of Inter and Milan), there is no room for relaxation.
Because this match is de facto a dress rehearsal for the second leg against Eintracht in the Champions League.
The Parthenopei have a real gem in their ranks. This is the ubiquitous Viktor Osimhen.
The 24-year-old Nigerian striker is the leading scorer in Calcio. And his current form is stunning.
Osimhen did not fail to score in the previous 8 matches for his team in Serie A.
That's why I added it as an option in this forecast of mine.
I think there will be a lot of goals too, most of them in Lazio's goal.
Although the Eagles have been playing solid defense lately (4 straight clean sheets).
Three of the last 4 direct matches ended in wins for Napoli and goal/goal – 5-2, 2-1, 2-1.
Napoli already tastes the Scudetto
I can safely say that Napoli are one of the teams that are in perfect form in the whole of Europe.
"Diego Armando Maradona" fans are increasingly licking their lips for the upcoming title .
Which has not come to Naples since the time when the great Diego, whose name bears the stadium under Vesuvius, played for the Parthenopei.
Napoli steps all right
Luciano Spalletti's footballers literally swept everything that came before their eyes.
They are on a fantastic 8-match streak in Serie A.
Which started after the loss against Inter on January 4th.
Before this loss, the Sky Blues were on an even longer winning streak - 11 consecutive successes .
Meanwhile, they are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
After a 2-0 away win against Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of their round of 16 clash.
Lazio are undefeated in 4 games (3-1-0)
This will be Lazio's second game this week.
After they played Sampdoria in a previous round match on Monday.
As expected, the Eagles took their own from the match with a narrow 1-0 win.
In fact, the three points are Maurizio Sarri's most important of the match.
Because his players did not particularly impress with their game .
Lazio plays every other day
To some extent, the fatigue has already started to show itself . As the Romans entered the Wednesday-Saturday mode.
And it looks like this will continue for a long time.
Because last week they secured progress in Europe after eliminating Cluj from the Conference League.
Meanwhile, they are also involved in the battle for the Top 4 in Calcio.
So every game until the end of the season will be like a final for Lazio if they want to taste the Champions League next year.
