Lazio vs Inter Prediction & Betting tips
At the weekend in Italy is the last matchday of the 2017/18 season. While many decisions have already been made in Serie A, Lazio Roma and Inter Milan are still fighting for the Champions League qualifiers on Sunday night. Inter suffered last weekend’s 2-1 home defeat against Table 12. Sassuolo suffered a major setback in the fight for the premier class. Now the Nerazzurri go with a three-point deficit in the direct duel for fourth place. Luckily for Inter, Lazio did not have a 2-2 draw in Crotone on matchday 37, otherwise the Champions League would have been long gone. As the first leg between the two ended with a 0-0 and Italy counted first in the direct comparison, Milan would be enough to defeat Lazio despite a six-goal worse goalscoring goal. The direct comparison is fairly balanced. Of the last ten duels, each team has won four games.
Lazio Rome is playing a great season. Twelve away and a total of 21 victories in the season signify a new record in the club’s 118-year history. 87 goals mean the best offensive of the first Italian league this season. Now the Laziali can crown the season with the qualification for the Champions League. The Romans rank sixth in the home table. Nine out of 19 games were won at the Stadio Olimpico, four times left the home ground as a loser. 43 goals scored in front of their own fans are also the top prize in the league.
But away from home, Rome collected 2.11 points on average and only 1.78 points per game in front of their own fans. The team of coach Simone Inzaghi has lost only one of the last 14 competitive games, with 1: 4 at RB Salzburg in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. In the league, the Romans are away for six games without defeat and at home for five games. At the Biancocelesti, Ciro Immobile will be ready in time for the season finale. Whether Marco Parolo and Luis Alberto can play, is not certain yet.
With the 38th matchday Inter has the opportunity to correct the gaffe last weekend. A move into the premier class would probably also secure the future of Coach Spalletti. Spalletti took office last summer with the minimum goal of Champions League participation. Most recently, the Nerazzurri were allowed to play in the Champions League six years ago. The Milan lost their last two home games – as many as in 19 games before in San Siro. Fortunately, there is now an away game. In foreign parts, coach Luciano Spalletti’s team have been unbeaten in three games and have scored seven points in that period. With 31 points, the Milanese occupy fifth place in the away table.
In the 18 previous away games Milan conceded only twelve goals. This is the third best value in Serie A. Overall, there were eight away victories and only three bankruptcies on the opponent’s place. With 28 goals conceded only master Juve has a better defense. After the Nerazzurri had finished the first round still in third place of the table, the team can be found in the ranking of the second round only in eighth place.
