Game: Lazio – Internazionale
Date: 6 January, Monday, 2014 year
Start time: 17:30 GMT
Lazio will face Inter in the first Serie A round for 2014. The game will take place in Rome at Stadio Olimpico.
Lazio is the 10th position in the stantings with 20 points from 17 matches. The Aquile are in very bad form after have won just one of their last eight games in Seria A.
Lazio are facing a deluge of problems as Vladimir Petkovic is still nominally in charge, but Edy Reja is conducting the team’s training sessions. It was he expected to lead the team in the upcoming match with Inter.
The team of Inter is the 5th position with 31 points from 17 matches. In the last round “La Beneamata” achieved a very important victory in the Derby of Milano, beating Milan with 1:0 at home. Prior this success, Inter had gone four games without a win in Seria A. The defence has been a worry for the Nerazzurri having conceded 11 goals in the last six games.
There is positive team news for Walter Mazzarri as Diego Milito is expected to make a return to the bench. Ricky Alvarez will also return in starting squad, though Saphir Taider is out for the next two weeks with a left adductor problem. Mateo Kovacic could possibly start in place of the Algerian after impressing in the derby victory.
Games between Lazio and Inter have traditionally been very effective and attractive. I expect in the upcoming game both teams to bet on the attacking style and see a lot of goals.
