Lazio – No silverware beckons for Sarri?

Maurizio Sarri will be pleased to see the back of February, but not before his beleaguered Lazio take on third-place Napoli. Former Chelsea and Juventus manager Sarri has been powerless to prevent his team from exiting both the Coppa Italia and Europa League in recent weeks. Bowing out of the latter on Thursday following a 4-2 aggregate defeat to FC Porto, after the sides drew 2-2 on the night in Rome.

Le Aquile have at least fared better on the domestic front. With 11 points from the last five games (W3 D2), they continue to strengthen their case for another season in Europe next term. However, last week’s 1-1 draw away to struggling Udinese has halted some of their momentum built up from successive 3-0 victories over Fiorentina and Bologna, while here at Stadio Olimpico it is just two wins in six in Serie A (D3 L1).

Key Stat: Lazio have scored three or more in eight of 12 Serie A home matches in 2021-22, netting exactly three six times. Four of their past five such matches saw them score at least three times, the sole exception a goalless draw with Atalanta on 22 January.

Napoli – Spalletti’s side all-in for Scudetto?

Luciano Spalletti’s men unfortunately wouldn’t fare any better during Thursday’s midweek Europa League action, unceremoniously dumped out at the Round of 32 stage by Barcelona. The La Liga side were both convincing winners on the night and the tie, winning 4-2 in Naples and 5-3 on aggregate. Leaving Napoli with only the league to focus on as they resume their pursuit for a first championship in 32 years.

Like Lazio, though, momentum has undoubtedly been lost owing to recent results. Each of their past two Serie A fixtures have ended 1-1, and while being held at home by Inter could be considered par for the course, last week’s display in Cagliari, in which Victor Osimhen’s 87th-minute equaliser salvaged a share of the points, was less so. Though the latter would stretch their unbeaten league run to seven (W4 D3).

Key Stat: Nine of the past ten Serie A matches involving Napoli haven’t seen more than two goals scored between the sides. Meanwhile, the last league opponent to score more than once against the Partenopei was Atalanta on 4 December, 11 games ago.

Lazio Vs Napoli Betting Advice

In recent times, siding with the hosts has proven a profitable venture when these teams come together. Across their last seven meetings in league and cup, the team playing at home has won 100% of the time. This includes both Serie A meetings at the Stadio Olimpico in the past two campaigns, Lazio following up a 1-0 success in January 2020 by producing another win to nil in December of last season, winning 2-0.


Lazio Vs Napoli – Key Facts:

  • Last Thursday saw both Lazio and Napoli exit Europe on the same night, meaning the pair are left to focus solely on Serie A for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.
  • Lazio, four points back from Juventus in fourth, won’t have given up on the top four while Napoli are locked in a three-way title race, trailing leaders AC Milan by two points.
  • Napoli’s 16 Serie A victories this term have comprised of 12 wins to nil, while Lazio have won the previous two home league meetings between the teams to nil (1-0 and 2-0).


Whoever prevails on Sunday, the margin is likely to be extra fine. Napoli boast the league’s best defence with 18 conceded in 26 games, leading to all but one of their past ten Serie A contests going Under 2.5 Goals. Meanwhile Lazio, so often free-scoring at the Stadio Olimpico this season, come into the game having fired blanks in their latest two home meetings with better opponents: 0-0 vs Atalanta, 0-2 vs Juventus.
