S.S.C. Napoli aims to extend advantage

SSC Napoli is looking to widen their gap when they meet with S.S. Lazio, who is holding on their spot in the top four. Looking at the league table, there is no denying that Napoli have been dominating this season. They currently sit on the top with 65 points, 18 points above the second placers. On the other hand, Lazio is also one of the top teams, sitting at the fourth of the league table. They are currently with 45 points, just one point above the fifth placers, so they need wins to widen their advantage. This meeting will be on March 3, 2023, at 3:45 AM (GMT+8), with Napoli playing as hosts.

The first meeting between these two teams is dated back in 1927, and since then, they already went against each other for 162 times. It is not a surprise that from those meetings, it was the hosts who are holding an advantage. They won 63 meetings, compared to the visitors’ 49 wins, while the remaining 50 ended in draw. These two teams are targeting wins in order to stay in good shape for them to secure their spots in the top four. Additionally, as the playoffs is getting near, they want to retain their good form.

As the league leaders this season, Napoli wants to extend their lead in the contest by winning yet another match. They are actually in a winning run in the league right now, winning eight Serie A matches. This record alone shows why they are sitting at the top of the league table. Coming into this game, they are from a 2-0 win against Empoli, all thanks to the strikes from Ismajili, and Osimhen. Napoli is impressive in their recent runs right now, ending their games in a 2-0 scoreline in their last three matches. As they are eyeing to widen their lead as the top team, they are hoping to continue their winning streak in this game.

Due to a dismissal he sustained on their last match, Mario Rui will be serving a suspension, making him unavailable in this game. Giacomo Raspadori on the other hand is also out in this match because of his injury.

Lazio on the other hand were finally able to overturn their results, as they are now in a two-game winning streak. Before their winning streak, they are actually winless in three-games. That winless run puts them in a bad position, as they continuously drop in the league table. They are still fortunate that they were able to held on their spot in the top four. On their last six games, they produced a low-scoring matches, including their 1-0 win against Sampdoria. They can gain confidence from the fact that they have kept clean sheets in their last four games across all competitions.

This squad is fortunate that Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and Mattia Zaccagni will be back from illness in this match. However, Alessio Romagnoli on the other hand remains to be unclear for this match. Nicolo Casale meanwhile is suspended due to the accumulated bookings.

Prediction:

SSC Napoli (1.0)
Odds: -0.87
