Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Like Juventus Napoli is one of the most disappointing teams in the current season of the Serie A. Napoli is still waiting for their first victory and was even unable to beat Sassuolo and Empoli this year. Lazio Roma on the other hand is placed 9th but with only 1 point difference with the 2nd place Chievo Verona. It seems like time is ticking for Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri. The pressure is extremely high at a club like Napoli, the supporters are in desperate need of succes and are questioning if Maurizio Sarri is the right man on the right spot. We expect both teams to play a defensive strategy and hope for counter possibilities.
Highlighted Team (Lazio Roma):
Lazio Roma are an Italian football club based in Rome. Lazio were founded in 1900 and they compete in the Serie A. The Biancocelesti (The White and Sky Blues) have won two Serie A trophies (1973/1974, 1999/2000), while lifting six Coppa Italia titles.
The capital club play their home games at Stadio Olimpico and Roma are regarded as Lazio’s main rivals.
The two teams face each other in the Derby della Capitale and it is considered the fiercest inter-city derby in Italy. Lazio won UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1999, with the team beating Mallorca in the title game. The same year they managed to clinch the UEFA Super Cup trophy as they outplayed English giants Manchester United at Stade Louis II, Monaco.
The likes of Pavel Nedved, Giuseppe Favalli, Juan Sebastian Veron, Sinisa Mihajlovic, Roberto Mancini, Giuseppe Signori, Miroslav Klose and Simone Inzaghi are notable footballers who played for Lazio in the past.
