Naples: Information about the team, moment form
The situation in Naples is a worrying one, and the team risks staying outside Europe for next season. The hosts’ evolutions are increasingly disappointing, reaching the 12th position in Serie A. Napoli has 4 defeats in the last 5 rounds of the championship and not even San Paolo can dominate their opponents. Last stage, the Neapolitans were defeated by Fiorentina on their own ground with the score of 2-0, a surprising defeat in the conditions in which Fiorentina was beginning to be threatened by relegation. It remains to be seen how much credit Gattuso will receive on the technical bank as well, because the Neapolitan leadership is recognized for their lack of patience.
Lazio: Information about the team, moment form
Lazio is undoubtedly the team of the moment in Italy. Ciro Immobile is having a fantastic season and this one managed to bring the Romanians to the 3rd position, just 3 points away from the Juventus leader. If at first it all seemed like an outburst of pride, now Lazio should be taken seriously and should be considered a title favorite. Previous stage, today’s guests recorded the 11th consecutive victory in the championship and did it in great style. They humiliated Sampdoria on their own ground with a score of 5-1. Stefan Radu came out of this duel and was changed due to an injury, after suffering two faults shortly after each other.
Napoli vs Lazio Picks
Normally I would recommend goals for such a duel. Napoli, however, looks like a team in the middle of the Serie A standings and the team’s game is a very weak one. On the other side, Lazio is going through its best period and a place in the semi-finals of the Italian Cup is very tempting.
