Inter v Lazio preview and betting, stats, odds. “Inter lost to Lazio in the first leg, but whether the Neradzurri will get their revenge on January 9 is in the forecast. How will the game end?
Inter suffered a poor start to the season as Simone Inzaghi’s side made some big mistakes that allowed rivals Napoli and AC Milan to pull away. But the Nerazzurri picked up their form in the first leg to end the first half as sole Serie A leaders.
Inter currently have 46 points on their books and are one point ahead of second-placed AC Milan, with third-placed Napoli six points clearer and the Italian champions still have a match to spare. On the final morning before the winter break, Inter beat Torino 1-0 at home – their seventh successive win in the league. The Nerazzurri were unable to play their 20th match due to a large number of sick players in the Bologna squad.
Lazio opened the league season with two straight wins, and it looked like they would be in contention for the Champions League this season. However, their winning streak came to an end on Matchday 3 and, in the first half of the season, the Eagles made a number of errors that left them without a place in the top four this season.
At the moment, Lazio are eighth in the table with 32 points – fourth-placed Atalanta are six points ahead, but the Goddess still have a game left to play. The position of Lazio is seriously complicated by the presence of Roma, Fiorentina and Juventus – the Eagles are definitely not favourites in the fight for fourth place.
In the last round, Lazio drew 3-3 with Empoli, narrowly missing out on a point.
Inter have gained great form before the winter break and absolutely deservedly finished the first half of the season as the sole leader of Serie A. There is no doubt that the Nerazzurri are the best team in the league in terms of the quality of football and they are favourites today for a reason – Lazio make a lot of mistakes in defence, and in class they are losing to the hosts. It would be next to impossible for the Eagles to get any points.

Our second bet would be Inter’s two-goal win. This bet can be placed for 4.45
