Lazio vs Napoli Predictions

  • The last four meetings between these two clubs have featured a total of 17 goals.
  • While Lazio have the league’s second-best attacking record, netting 53 goals in 26 Serie A outings, Napoli have scored 47 in the same amount of games.
  • Five of Lazio’s last six games have contained three or more goals.

Entertainment awaits in headline clash

Lazio and Napoli will bring the curtain down upon the weekend’s Serie A action on Sunday night, in a fixture which has always contained goals. The last four head-to-head meetings have seen the net hit on 17 occasions, with Napoli winning the last two clashes 5-2 and 4-0, both on home soil.

Both sides were eliminated from the UEFA Europa League in midweek, with Maurizio Sarri’s team going down to Porto, 4-3 on aggregate. Those two contests with the Portuguese league leaders were sandwiched either side of a disappointing draw at Udinese, making it three games without a win for the Eagles. However, Sarri has only lost once in his 12 home league games, and no Serie A outfit can match the 31 home league goals plundered by Lazio this season.

Napoli, meanwhile, were on the wrong side of a six-goal thriller against Barcelona on Thursday, a 4-2 home loss seeing them exit the competition by a 5-3 aggregate scoreline. Bizarrely, Luciano Spalletti’s title-chasers have now gone four matches without winning in all competitions, but are on a seven-match unbeaten run in Serie A, winning four of those games as they chase a first Scudetto since the Diego Maradona era.

Goals a certainty in Rome, but nothing else is guaranteed

Given Napoli won the return fixture 4-0 earlier this season, dismantling Sarri’s men in brutal fashion, the Scudetto contenders enter the contest as worthy favourites. However, the visitors’ 1-1 draw with Cagliari last Monday, as well as Lazio’s good home record, might be enough to put some doubt in punters’ minds.

Therefore, over 2.5 goals to be scored, as has occurred in five of Lazio’s last six games, looks the outstanding play for this contest, with Lazio’s 26 Serie A contests containing a total of 93 goals this term.

With the likes of Lorenzo Insigne returning to fitness, however, Napoli might be worth backing for correct score punters, and a 2-1 away win could be a prudent play on that front.
