Serie A title hopefuls Inter Milan travel to the capital to face a Lazio side that sit 6pts and three places below them in the league table. The hosts look set to be without a couple of key players this weekend, which should play into the hands of a confident-looking Inter side.
Lazio vs Inter Milan: Our Top Three Picks
Here are our predictions for Lazio vs Inter Milan.
*Odds from Ladbrokes are subject to change
Inter Milan to Win
Inter Milan beat Lazio 3-1 when the pair last locked horns back in February and we’re backing the visitors to secure all 3pts on Saturday once again. Lazio suffered a shock 3-0 defeat at the hands of Bologna last time out and will be without their top scorer Immobile and influential centre-back Acerbi this weekend. Inter are yet to lose in the league this season and could move above local rivals AC Milan with a win.
Under 2.5 Goals
We’re expecting this game to be tight and tense throughout and have backed under 2.5 goals to be scored. Four of the last six meetings between these two clubs in all competitions have ended with fewer than three goals being scored. Under 2.5 goals were also produced in three of Lazio’s last six matches, so you can see why we’re not expecting a high-scoring game this weekend.
Edin Dzeko to Score
Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez have struck up a fantastic partnership already this season and were backing the veteran Bosnia-Herzegovina striker to find the back of the net against Lazio. The former Chelsea and Roma striker has netted 6-goals in Serie A already this season and Lazio will be without their leader in defence this weekend, which will surely play into the hands of the Inter strikers.

Lazio could struggle without Acerbi and Immobile on the field
Before the international break, Lazio were stunned by Bologna as the home side secured a 3-0 victory. Immobile wasn’t available for that game and Acerbi received his marching orders in the 76th-minute but that damage had already been done by that point. Despite sitting in 6th spot, Lazio haven’t had the best of starts to the new season and rely heavily on the goals of Immobile, so this weekend’s clash with Inter Milan is going to be a true test of their ability to adapt.
Inter Milan went behind away at Sassuolo last time out but fought back well to secure all 3pts. Berardi netted a penalty in the 22nd-minute to put the hosts in front but just before the hour mark Dzeko equalised for Inter. With 12-minutes left on the clock, Dzeko’s strike partner Martinez converted a penalty to put Inter in front and that proved enough to win the game. Inter Milan certainly look like they could retain their title this season and it will be results against the top teams like Lazio that will prove crucial come the business end of the campaign.
