Competition: Serie A
Market: Lazio to score over 1.5 goals
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
Hoping to sign off this year’s Serie A campaign with another statement, top-four outfit Lazio will make the trip to a downbeat Napoli on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, hit with a 2-0 defeat away at Inter Milan earlier in the week, Napoli’s constant inconsistencies have been on display this season. With their Coppa Italia victory almost feeling like a lifetime ago, Gennaro Gattuso’s side have collected just a pair of Serie A victories in their previous six outings and have shown some real issues at the back. With Sassuolo so cruelly having four goals ruled out via VAR last weekend, the former AC Milan boss has remarkably seen his side land just a single clean sheet in any of their previous nine appearances. With their recent issues highlighted by what was a dramatic 2-1 defeat away at Bologna last week, Napoli have also managed to land just a sole clean sheet at the Stadio San Paolo since marking their return from the enforced break.
As for the visitors, while a sluggish return from football’s enforced break might have brought a halt to Lazio’s title charge, the Eagles have bounced back in some style. Picking up what was a deserved 2-0 victory against an already-relegated Brescia earlier in the week, I Biancocelesti now find themselves in the midst of a three-match winning run and have managed to clinch a Champions League return. Unsurprisingly, one man to keep an eye out for this weekend will be leading marksman and attacking talisman, Ciro Immobile. Once again finding the net against Brescia earlier in the week, the Italy international has recorded six top-flight goals in just his last four appearances and sits in pole position to lift Europe’s Golden Shoe this summer. With 34 strikes coming in Serie A this season, there is no doubt that Immobile and Lazio will be confident of signing off their campaign in some style this weekend.
