Lazio vs Inter Milan: Hosts to shade struggling Nerazzurri
Kick Off: 1945, 21/05/2017
Stadium: Stadio Olimpico
TV: BT Sport 1
It hasn’t been a good week for Lazio but they must put two straight defeats behind them and focus on beating Inter Milan to wrap up fourth spot in Serie A.
That would be more like the standard required after last year’s eighth-place finish and the good news is that Inter are in turmoil after picking up just one point in seven games.
A shade of odds against at 11/10 for a home win here is hard to resist in our Lazio vs Inter Milan betting tips.
A Look At Lazio’s Betting Odds
Lazio had scored 16 goals in a hat-trick of Serie A victories before last week’s 3-2 loss at Fiorentina, with all the goals conceded in a 10-minute horror show.
Simone Inzaghi paid the price for resting some key players that day and that move didn’t help them avoid a 2-0 defeat to Juventus in Wednesday night’s Coppa Italia final either.
Inzaghi was far from downbeat after that midweek reversal, though, pointing out his side had not had the rub of the green but were still competitive against the Champions League finalists.
Lazio have shown they can quickly recover from setbacks this term, including when following up a home loss to Chievo by winning 2-1 at Inter in the knockout competition.
Looking at the Lazio vs Inter Milan odds, 33/4 for a repeat of that scoreline appeals here.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Things were looking good for Inter Milan when they beat Lazio 3-0 at the San Siro in Serie A as part of a seven-match winning run in the league during December and January.
There was also a useful stretch of four wins in five over February and March, but the Nerazzurri have simply fallen apart at the business end of the season.
A nightmare sequence of six defeats in seven fixtures has included losses to Genoa and Sassuolo over the past fortnight, with Stefano Pioli becoming the club’s second managerial casualty of the campaign in between those matches.
To be fair, the fallen giants only went down by a one-goal margin in each of those six reversals, so 16/5 that happens again here is worth adding to our Lazio vs Inter Milan predictions.
