In the first round, the Biancocelesti beat Bologna 2-1 in front of their fans, while in the second they took one point as guests against Torino in a goalless draw of 0-0. The only scorer for the Roman team in the first two rounds is Ciro Immobile.
Maurizio Sarri’s men are disciplined and well organized at both ends of the pitch. Their defensive line is compact and it is really difficult for the opponents to find a hole. Alessio Romagnoli arrived from Milan during the summer and further strengthened this part of the team.
Lazio’s best individual in the first two rounds is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. He has established himself as the main playmaker and he is the creator of many attacking actions. In addition to his expressed creativity, he is a constant threat to the opponent’s goal, because his main abilities are excellent shooting and heading.
The fact that they scored only one goal in 180 minutes (the first goal against Bologna was an own goal) is a bit worrying, so the Lazio players will have to improve their attacking performance in the coming period.
On the other hand, the Nerazzurri started their new campaign quite safely. In the first round, they had problems against Lecce, they won 2-1 with Denzel Dumfries’ goal in the 95th minute. However, Inter football players showed all their strength against Spezia in the second round with a 3-0 victory.
The two central forwards Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku were in good spirits in the opening games. Both scored a goal and an assist and once again confirmed that they will be the main strength of the reigning runners-up in the new season.
In addition to the attack, the team’s midfield performs admirably. Hakan Calhanoglu is the primary playmaker, and the wing-backs have a significant impact on attacks. Coach Simone Inzaghi equally trusts all four players, therefore they each play the same number of minutes on the field: Dumfries, Dimarco, Gosens, and Darmian.
Both teams triumphed last year as hosts. Lazio won 3-1 in Rome, and Inter won 2-1 in Milan.
Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Marušić, Romagnoli, Patric, Lazzari; Cataldi, Vecino, Milinković-Savić; Anderson, Zaccagni, Immobile
Inter (3-5-2): Handanović; Baston, De Vrij, Skriniar; Dimarco, Calhanoglu, Brozović, Barella, Dumfries; Martinez, Lukaku
The players of Lazio have certain problems with realization at the beginning of the season, and the same cannot be said for their next opponents. We are of the opinion that Inter is more compact and better in all lines of the team, and we believe that the Nerazzurri will achieve a third consecutive victory in the new campaign.
Prediction: Inter To Win
