Napoli vs Lazio Prediction & Betting tips
In Italian Serie A, all decisions have long been made in the upper half of the table. Juventus can look forward to the ninth consecutive Scudetto win and the champions and Europa League participants have also already been determined. Accordingly, the well-known top game on the last matchday between Naples and Lazio Rome, before which the odds of the best bookmakers are just in favor of the guests, no longer has any major sporting relevance.
While the Romans play their last competitive game of the extended 2019/20 season, the Neapolitans are the dress rehearsal for the important round of 16 second leg in the Champions League this weekend against FC Barcelona. It is quite possible that coach Gattuso will spare one or the other regular players for fear of being injured in view of this international highlight.
Although Partenopei won four of the five home games after the restart in Serie A, the bottom line is only two wins from their most recent six league games. The Biancocelesti shifted up a gear in the final sprint and finally landed three threes in a row. The Inzaghi team flirted just one point behind Inter Milan and tied with Atalanta Bergamo with the runner-up championship.
In our eyes, it is therefore advisable to align the forecast between Naples and Lazio Rome in the direction of the light blue and white, which, moreover, should still have lust for revenge. On the way to the 2020 cup victory, the “Azzurri” won 1-0 against Lazio at the end of January.
SSC Napoli will finish the season in Serie A in seventh place. Under normal circumstances, the blues would have missed the ticket for international business, but thanks to the unexpected victory in the Coppa Italia final against Juventus, the team of coach Gennaro Gattuso can at least try their luck in the Europa League next season.
Before the southern Italians can go into the well-deserved summer break, there are at least two competitive games on the program. Saturday’s home game against Lazio Rome is just the final test before the highly anticipated round of 16 second leg in the Champions League against Barcelona. The first leg against home backdrop ended with a 1-1, so that the men from the foot of Vesuvius still have every chance of reaching the round of eight.
The decisive question for the last Serie A match mentioned is therefore whether the ex-professional is sparing one or the other player with regard to the premier class or whether he does not want to interrupt the rhythm of the game that has meanwhile slowed down. We tend towards the first scenario and consequently consider the odds of winning away between Naples and Lazio to be far more lucrative.
To further support our recommendation, there is also the argument that Partenopei only won two of their last six Serie A games and had problems in their own stadium throughout the season. Napoli currently occupies only eighth place in the home table and was only able to win half of all games in San Paolo (three draws, six bankruptcies). The “Azzurri” stayed at home only four times without conceding a goal, which could also favor an over-bet on Saturday.
For a long time, it looked like Lazio could actually be Juventus dangerous in the battle for the championship this year. However, the dream was dreamed up at the latest with the five-game winning streak series (one draw, four bankruptcies) between matchday 30 and 34, which ended with a defeat against the subscription champion. If you consider that the Romans are currently only five points behind the leaders, it becomes clear that there would definitely have been more.
After all, the team of coach Simone Inzaghi has to be held to the fact that after the dream of winning the title didn’t burst, she did not feel sorry for herself, but freed herself from the result crisis. Recently there were three wins in a row, which on the one hand brought new self-confidence and on the other hand ensured that Ciro Immobile, with four goals ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, will not be able to take the renewed triumph as best scorer.
The fact that one played very consistently abroad also speaks for the capital club. Ten wins in 18 away games correspond to a very strong value. Even the most recent guest appearance at Hellas Verona was won 5-1.
In general, the past matches with Biancocelesti participation were characterized by a lot of spectacle. Only in two of the eleven encounters after the restart did the over 2.5 not be cracked. We assume on Saturday that the Inzaghi protégés will play for victory, in order to possibly make the leap to second or third place in the table. All the advantages are on the part of the guests, which is why a tip on the Romans includes an attractive value between Naples and Lazio Rome.
