Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Serie A leader Inter Milan will welcome Lazio Roma in the Giuseppe Meazza stadium for the 17th round of the Italian Serie A. Inter Milan did great business in round 16 beating Udinese easily 0-4 and seeing Fiorentina losing against Juventus 3-1. Inter Milan is currently the number 1 having 36 points out of 16 games. The difference with Fiorentina and Napoli is 4 points which will give Inter Milan a good perspective in the title race this season. Lazio Roma on the other hand let the victory slip out of their hands in the last minute against Sampdoria and is currently placed on a disappointing 12 position. Lazio manager Stefano Pioli is heavily criticized and will have to improve his teams performance in order to please the fans and the board. Previous confrontations between both teams show that they use to be very equal to each other. We predict Inter Milan to beat Lazio Roma with minimum difference. Inter Milan in it's current form with the home advantage is to strong for Lazio Roma. Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini will be happy to get into the winter break being the number 1 in the Serie A.
