Lazio vs Inter Milan Betting Preview – 29/10/2018

Lazio vs Inter Milan

An extremely exciting tie between two of the top-four hopefuls in the Italian Serie A will go ahead at the Stadio Olimpico on Monday night as Lazio take on Inter Milan in the Italian capital.

Fourth plays third in this tie as Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio look to continue their three-game unbeaten run in all competitions, whilst Milan are on a run of five-straight wins in the Italian top-flight, but lost 2-0 to Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League last week.

Lazio currently sit fourth under the watchful eye of Inzaghi and the eye-catching team in the Italian first division will be hoping to continue their good form. Lazio beat Marseille 3-1 in the UEFA Europa League last time out, making it eight wins from ten matches in all competitions and the home fans will be expecting nothing less than a win here, which is priced at 3/2 with William Hill. Inzaghi’s side have been exceptional at home, winning three-straight games and keeping two clean sheets and another shutout win here is 16/5 with Sky Bet, whilst a win and both teams to score is the same price with the same bookmaker.

Lazio will have main man Ciro Immobile spearheading their attacks against Inter this week and the Italian international will be hoping his six goals in nine matches will give him the confidence of grabbing another here. The 28-year-old to grab the first goal here is 3/1 with Bet365, whilst a goal anytime is 5/6 with the same bookmaker. Elsewhere, Joaquin Correa has been in the goals with two in recent matches and a goal anytime here is 9/2 with Betfair.

Luciano Spalletti’s Inter Milan currently sit third in the Italian top-flight, just three points behind second place Napoli and nine points behind unbeaten league leaders Juventus, who look to be running away with the league once again after ten matches. A win here, which is priced at 21/10 with Bet Victor, whilst a draw for only the second time this season and the first time since March 2008 in the head-to-head matches between the sides is 5/2 with Bet365. Milan have huge aspirations of finishing in the top two this season and after starting well that hope is very much alive and a win away in Rome could see them leapfrog Napoli into the top two.

Last time out, Milan were beaten 2-0 away to European giants Barcelona in Europe after a run of seven-straight wins in all competitions and the loss was a frustrating one after causing problems to the hosts on several occasions. Prior to that, three of Inter Milan’s seven consecutive wins ended in 2-1 victories, including a win away to PSV and a fantastic win against Fiorentina. Another 2-1 win here, which last happened back in 2015 in the corresponding tie, is priced at an attractive 17/2 with Sky Bet, whilst a win and both teams to score is 4/1 with the same bookmaker.

Spearheading the Milan attacks against Lazio will be Argentinian striker Mauro Icardi, who has been excellent this season with four goals in the Serie A and has a great record of five goals and one assist in his ten career matches in the league against Lazio. Radja Nainggolan will be a big miss as the Belgian recovers from an ongoing ankle problem, but plenty of firepower elsewhere will stand Inter in good stead for this game. There has been over 2.5 goals in seven of the last ten matches between these two sides and with Milan’s impressive attacking prowess, that is a good bet here at 4/5 with Betway.
