Preview: Just three teams in Serie A boast a 100% record heading into round three of the 2022-23 campaign. Inter Milan are among that trio, and on Friday Simone Inzaghi takes his thus far flawless side to the ground where he enjoyed five years at the Lazio helm.

Lazio – Sarri’s men not as threatening this term?

For a team that scored 77 times in 38 league games last term, which was actually the second-best figure in Serie A, behind the 84 of Inter Milan, it has been a surprisingly tepid showing thus far from Maurizio Sarri’s charges. After two rounds, Lazio have four points from a possible six after playing Bologna and Torino. Scoring twice – one an own goal – from 1.5xG, which is a worse figure than all barring Lecce and Monza.

It’s early days, though, and a return to Stadio Olimpico presents an opportunity to go through the gears. Last season, Le Aquile averaged more than two goals every home outing in the league as they won 10 of 19 said matches (D6 L3). Only one of those victories, however, would come against the four sides which finished above them: a 3-1 victory over Inter not exactly offsetting loses to AC Milan, Juventus and Napoli.

Key Stat: Just one of last season’s five Serie A home encounters against the top six ranking teams (AC Milan, Inter Milan, Napoli, Juventus and Roma) didn’t produce Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams To Score.

Inter Milan – Nerazzurri are the Serie A team in form?

The Nerazzurri dropped only three points across their final nine league games of last season (W8 L1). They still ended up relinquishing the Serie A title though. Their supreme form towards the end of the campaign, which also culminated in a thrilling Coppa Italia final win over Juventus, not enough to haul in AC Milan who finished two points in the clear. Undeterred, Inzaghi’s men have picked up from where they left off.

Inter Milan made extremely light work of last week’s assignment against Spezia, thrashing the Ligurians 3-0 at San Siro. Although they needed a last-gasp winner to beat newly-promoted Lecce on the opening weekend, 2020-21’s Scudetto winners were good value for the three points at Stadio Via del Mare. Making it ten wins in their past 11 league games, having lost once in 15 (W11 D3) since the middle of February.

Key Stat: Inter Milan accrued more points away from home last season (39) than Lazio managed at home. However, they would beat only one of the top five on their travels (W1 D2 L1) – that a 1-0 victory in Turin versus Juventus.

Lazio Vs Inter Milan Betting Advice

Inter Milan last won away to Lazio in the league in October 2018, losing on two of their three subsequent visits which includes a 3-1 scoreline upon visiting the Stadio Olimpico last season. Prior to that, though, the Nerazzurri had won three away meetings in a row and their early performances, coupled with Lazio looking unconvincing so far, suggest the visitors are the more likely winners from Friday’s contest.


Lazio Vs Inter Milan – Key Facts:

  • Two rounds into the 2022-23 Serie A season and both these teams are yet to taste defeat. Lazio sit 8 on four points whereas Inter Milan are currently in 2nd with six points from six, behind Napoli on goal difference.
  • Inter Milan haven’t beaten Lazio away from home in the league in three previous attempts (D1 L2). They fell to a 3-1 defeat in last season’s corresponding fixture.
  • Each of the last five meetings between the teams has produced both teams scoring, with only one of these encounters seeing fewer than three goals.


Lazio have made a respectable start, with four points from two games, but have been fortunate to a degree after losing the xG battle against both Bologna (home) and Torino (away).

All but one of the past six here saw three or more goals, with five of those seeing both teams getting amongst the scoring.
