Team News: Lazio
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Lazio gaffer Maurizio Sarri to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Bobby Adekanye (Meniscal Injury) will miss out. Francesco Acerbi is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Inter Milan
Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi has a number of players out of action. Stefano Sensi (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury), Gabriel Brazão (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Christian Eriksen (Heart Condition) are those who can’t be considered.
We feel that over the course of the game, Lazio will need to apply a lot of pressure to see themselves scoring against this Inter Milan side who will likely emerge victorious.
Our tip is therefore for a very even match with a 0-1 winning margin for Inter Milan when the full-time whistle blows.
Expecting it to be tight.
