Lazio vs Napoli PredictionLazio v Napoli Prediction and Preview for Saturday's Serie A fixture. High-flying Lazio welcome underwhelming Napoli to the Olimpico Stadium, hoping to secure bragging rights and more importantly, maximum points against the Biacocelesti. For that, they will have their work cut-out.
Match status: 2019/20 Serie A - Matchweek 19
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)

Lazio have been one of the surprise packages of the Serie A this season, exceeding pre-season expectations of finishing mid-table by challenging for a top-four place. So far, they have garnered 39 points from 17 league games.

Sitting third on the standings, they are just five points shy of the league summit, and with a crucial game in hand. Simone Inzaghi could not have hoped for a better season considering how perfect the current campaign has panned out.

The Olimpico Stadium will separate the shaft from the wheat on Saturday, when these two sides lock horns in what is expected to be an enthralling game in Rome.

Lazio v Napoli Team News

Lazio have simply been outstanding in recent weeks, going on an impressive nine-game winning streak in the Serie A. That is a really remarkable feat, judging by all standards. Their superb form this season has seen them climb up to third on the standings.

Following a hard-fought 2-1 win over Sassuolo, the Biancocelesti saw off Cagliari by the same score-line on the subsequent game-week. 

Last time out against relegation-threatened Brescia, on the road, they were dealt a major scare as Eugenio Corini’s side fired themselves ahead very early in the game. However, the visiting contingent soon pulled level, setting us up for a frantic end to the game.

Goal-scoring machine Ciro Immobile turned savior for his side, once again, placing the ball in the corner of the net as the clock wound down, to clinch maximum points for his side. A brilliant comeback it was for Inazghi’s men even on the road.

Immobile has now registered a massive 19 Serie A goals this season and has now scored more goals than five Serie A sides. The Naples-born striker simply knows how to find the back of the net. Where would Lazio be without this man?

The Olimpico Stadium has been something of a fortress this season with Le Aquile having managed six wins and two draws on this ground. So far, they are yet to taste defeat on home turf, emphasizing how strong this side have been here.

They schooled reigning champions Juventus in their last home game, posting a 3-1 scorecard on the board.

Napoli, on the other hand, have been mediocre this season. Their eighth position on the log just about sums up their dreadful displays this season. Following a poor first-half of the season, the board had to take drastic actions, giving manager Carlo Ancelotti the sack.

With Gennaro Gattuso at the helm, results and performances seem to have improved a tad bit. Heading into this huge game, the Parthenopeans will take confidence from their 2-1 away win at Sassuolo two weeks ago.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Lazio: Jordan Lukaku, Marco Parolo.

Napoli: Kevin Malcuit, Faouzi Ghoulam, Kalidou Koulibaly, Nikola Maksimovic.

Lazio vs Napoli Predictions

Lazio have to be considered huge favorites for the win here, given home advantage and their recent red-hot form. They have been dogged at the Olimpico Stadium and are likely to keep their impressive winning run going.

Napoli were on the receiving end of a humiliating 3-1 loss to Inter Milan on the last match-day, much to the dismay of fans. The likelihood of the Parthenopeans nicking a positive result here is very narrow.

The home side should win this game fairly comfortably with Ciro Immobile getting in amongst the goals once again.
