Competition: Serie A
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport
In a battle between two Italian heavyweights on Sunday night, Lazio will welcome Napoli to the Stadio Olimpico for a meeting that should see chances at both ends of the pitch.
Starting with the hosts, eventually crashing out of the Europa League thanks to an action-packed 4-3 aggregate defeat against Porto in midweek, Lazio appear to find themselves in the midst of a recent struggle. Last seen on Serie A duties having to settle for a 1-1 draw away at Udinese, Head Coach Maurizio Sarri sees his side in a real uphill battle to clinch a Champions League spot this season. Managing to win just one of their previous five matchups across all formats, a run highlighted by a 4-0 drumming against AC Milan on February 9th, Sunday’s hosts have also shown some extended issues at the back. Hoping to find a much-needed boost here, there is no doubt that Lazio will be calling on attacking talisman Ciro Immobile to spearhead their charge. The 32-year-old has racked up 19 goals in just his 21 Serie A outings this season.
As for the visitors, also crashing out of the Europa League earlier in the week, Napoli find themselves in an almost identical position to Sunday’s hosts. Eventually getting hit with a 4-2 drumming at home against Spanish heavyweights Barcelona, the Blues have the feel of a side seeking their own boost this weekend. Last seen on Serie A duties having to snatch a late 1-1 draw away at relegation scrappers Cagliari, Head Coach Luciano Spalletti finds his side in the midst of a four-match winless run across all formats. However, it should be noted, storming their way to a 4-0 romp against Lazio when the two sides faced off earlier in the season, they do hold a rather rampant record against their fellow European contenders. In a matchup that promises to be a lively affair, we’re backing both teams to find the net at the Stadio Olimpico here.
Bet: Both teams to score at Lazio vs Napoli 2/3 for Sunday’s Serie A battle @ 888sport
