After the international break, Serie A resumes with Lazio hosting Inter Milan in Rome. Lazio are in sixth place with 11 points, while Inter are in third place with 17 points, and this will be one of the most important matches in Italy this weekend.
Lazio suffered a surprising 3-0 loss to Bologna just before the international break, exposing their defensive flaws once again. They have only kept one clean sheet in nine games this season, and three of their previous five games have seen them concede two or more goals. In five of Lazio's nine encounters, both teams have scored, while they have failed to score in three.
Three of Serie A's top scorers, Ciro Immobile of Lazio and Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko of Inter, could meet in this match. Martinez, on the other hand, is unlikely to play because he is now with the Argentina national team. Lazio will be relieved if he does not play, as he has scored in both of their previous meetings. Sergej Milinkovic of Lazio, who has scored twice already this season and four goals in his last five meetings with Inter, might be a vital player in this game.
Inter are unbeaten in their previous five games, including a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo in their most recent outing. Their only loss this season was a 1-0 setback in the Champions League to Real Madrid, and they have defensive concerns. Both sides have scored in six of their nine games, although Inter has only one clean sheet in their seven league games.
Inter may be without Alexis Sanchez and Lautaro Martinez, who are both on international duty in South America. Martinez, based on his contributions to Inter this season, will be missed even more. Edin Dzeko, who has five goals in his previous five games, should be able to help Inter solve their attacking problems. Inter has scored more than two goals in four of their past five games.
Both of these teams have in-form strikers and their primary issues are at the back. They haven't kept a clean sheet in a long time, and both clubs have scored in their last three games. Based on their recent scoring records, I believe both clubs will score in this game.
KICKOFF TIME: This match will be played today at 5PM Nigerian time.
