Lazio vs Napoli Prediction: Sportpesa Mega Jackpot Predictions
Lazio’s recent run of four consecutive Serie A victories has propelled them into contention for a top-four finish, providing a welcome return to league action after a disappointing 3-0 loss to Inter Milan in the Supercoppa Italiana. Following that defeat, Manager Maurizio Sarri criticized his players, describing them as “afraid” and “mentally soft,” expecting a much-improved performance as they prepare to face Napoli.
The Biancocelesti will find comfort in playing at the Stadio Olimpico, where they have lost just one of their last 12 home fixtures (winning 10 and drawing one).
This home record could serve as inspiration against Napoli, who have defeated them 2-1 in their last two encounters at this venue.
Despite facing challenges due to a growing list of absentees, Lazio seeks reinforcements during the transfer window to enhance their prospects for the remainder of the season.
While Lazio grapples with injuries and suspensions, Napoli faces a more significant crisis with a multitude of unavailable players due to various reasons such as injuries, international duty, and suspensions.
The team also suffered a setback in the Super Cup against Inter Milan, with head coach Walter Mazzarri expressing frustration at refereeing decisions by abstaining from the post-match ceremony.
Amid swirling rumors of star striker Victor Osimhen’s potential departure and speculation about José Mourinho’s appointment as manager, Napoli’s title defense has faltered significantly.
Currently sitting ninth in the league standings and having won only one of their last four league games (with one draw and two losses), Napoli has endured a tough period, especially away from home, where they have suffered three consecutive defeats in Serie A without scoring a goal – their worst such sequence since February-April 2015.
In terms of standout performers, Lazio has relied on the trio of Ciro Immobile, Matías Vecino, and Mattia Zaccagni this season. Immobile leads the scoring charts for Lazio with four goals, followed closely by Vecino and Zaccagni, each with three goals.
For Napoli, Victor Osimhen, Matteo Politano, and Cyril Ngonge have been the main contributors, collectively scoring 19 goals this campaign, with Osimhen leading the pack with seven goals.
