Lazio has been gradually showing signs of improvement. The club has displayed inconsistent performances throughout the season, failing to embark on a winning streak. Consequently, Sarri’s squad sits relatively low in the Serie A standings, in tenth place with 21 points. Despite this, they’re only three to four points away from teams in the relegation zone. A few victories could swiftly propel them back up the table.

In the past month, Lazio has begun securing wins more frequently, albeit narrowly, such as the 1-0 victory over Cagliari in Serie A. Other victories came in different tournaments: a 1-0 triumph against Genoa in the Cup and a 2-0 win over Celtic in the Champions League. Notably, Sarri’s team has performed well in the European Cup, securing a spot in the playoffs.

Inter has long secured their place in the next stage of the Champions League. Within their group, Benfica and Salzburg posed minimal challenges. However, the battle for the top spot was between Inter and Real Sociedad, won by the Spanish side after a recent face-off ended in a goalless draw.

In Serie A, Inzaghi’s team has encountered minimal issues. Their recent draw with Juventus (1-1) marked their first setback in a considerable time. Typically, Inter secures victories in most games, boasting the lowest goals conceded in the tournament and leading the league table.

Lazio vs Inter Expected Starting Lineups

Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Casale, Gila, Marusic; Guendouzi, Vecino, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni.

Lazio vs Inter Prediction
