Napoli vs Lazio Prediction and Betting Preview, 01 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 3-1
Not the prettiest of campaigns for Napoli, this is one the club supporters will hope to put behind them very soon. They have been very horrific, struggling to assert their dominance in the league. In fact, they have lost their fear factor with a couple of notable defeats against some weak sides.
Match status: 2019-20 Serie A - Matchweek 38
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples)
Having finished right behind table toppers Juventus the previous season, many expected the Parthenopeans to produce another strong title challenge this time around. However, Napoli have thinned out into obscurity, sitting outside of the European places.

For all their struggles, they will be forgiven for their pathetic league performances with the Coppa Italia trophy safely stashed in the cabinet. Also, the league cup triumph has provided them a back-door entry to the group phases of next season’s edition of the Europa League.

With a second-leg Champions League Round-of-16 fixture against Spanish giants Barcelona on the cards, Gattuso will likely rest some of his key players this weekend in preparation for the huge game at the Nou Camp. As such, Lazio have a decent chance at success here.

Napoli vs Lazio Team News

Overseeing a rather poor Serie A campaign, Gennaro Gattuso will be disappointed in his players for failing to turn up this season. Surely, they are far from their best, and a shadow of their former selves. Ahead of the coming season, the club are planning a squad overhaul to add some quality to the side.

Taking on second-placed Inter Milan on the last match day, Napoli were required to turn in a performance of the highest quality to stand any chances against their superior opposition. Playing out another disappointing game, they were easily swept aside by the Nerazzurri.

Failing to cause Inter any sort of problems, Gli Azzurri were second-best throughout the match. Totally shambolic in defense, D’Ambrosio and Lautaro Martinez got on the scoresheet to put Napoli to the sword. Ultimately, Gattuso’s men headed home emptyhanded.

While Napoli were being schooled by Inter Milan, the Biancocelesti were in action against relegated outfit Brescia at the Stadio Olimpico. Always expected to come out tops, Lazio produced a strong performance to secure a well-deserved win.

Never really troubled by the opposition, the Eagles remained in control for large portions of the game. After Correa had fired his side ahead early in the game, Ciro Immobile put the game to bed via a second-half effort to post a comfortable 2-0 win.

For this fixture, Lazio are clear favorites for victory. They are currently in red-hot form and are buzzing ahead of their return to Champions League football. With Ciro Immobile spearheading the Biancocelesti’s attack, they have been scoring goals for fun this season.

The Italian striker has already usurped Lewandowski to the top of Europe’s goalscoring charts and is set to receive his first Golden Boot award. Another goal in this fixture will see him equal the record for highest number of goals in a single Serie A season.

It is worth noting that Napoli are heading into this fixture with a pretty decent home record, securing victories in five of their preceding six games at this venue. Also, they are on an impressive nine-game unbeaten run on this ground.

Napoli vs Lazio Predictions

Napoli’s home form might be intimidating but Lazio will not be phased by their impressive numbers. The Eagles are on a three-game winning run of their own, and looking to occupy second-spot on the log before the season’s curtains draw close.

Also, given Gattuso is set is name a second-string Napoli side here, Lazio are favorites to nick the win. Expect the visitors to deliver the three points at the end of the ninety minutes.
