Napoli Preview – Can Napoli upset Lazio’s plans?

Two defeats from Napoli’s last three matches finally put paid to any hopes that the hosts may have had of claiming a top six finish in Serie A following a 2-0 defeat away from home at Inter Milan, and they’ll now head into this final match of the season without a European spot to look forward to.

Both of these recent defeats were inflicted upon Napoli away from home with a previous 2-1 loss at Parma also contributing to Napoli’s poor finish to their Serie A campaign, but at least they’ll be returning to their Stadio San Paolo for this final match of the season where they’ve won five of their last six matches.

Victories over Torino, SPAL, Roma, Udinese and Sassuolo are still impressive wins and the hosts should be respected ahead of this clash, but whether they can pull out a result against Lazio remains to be seen; instead, the goals angle looks attractive here as 12 of Napoli’s 18 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Lazio Preview – Can Lazio sneak 2nd spot?

With Atalanta and Inter Milan playing each other this Saturday, this may be the perfect opportunity for 4th placed Lazio to steal the runners-up spot from under the noses of their top four rivals when they make their way to face Napoli in this interesting encounter.

Lazio find themselves just one point behind 2nd placed Inter Milan ahead of this weekend’s action thanks to the visitors’ recent upturn in form which has seen Lazio win their last three matches on the trot in the Italian top flight.

Wins against Cagliari, Hellas Verona and Brescia have secured a top four finish for Lazio and the associated Champions League spot which goes along with it, but the visitors could finish as high as 2nd if they win here and Atalanta and Inter Milan draw.

However, results away from home have been a bit of a mixed bag of late as Lazio have won just two of their last six matches on the road – but 14 of Lazio’s 18 away matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals, so this looks the best option for this clash.
