Watch Online: Inter - Lazio (Serie A) 09.01.2022 19:45 - Sunday
At the beginning of the 2021/22 season, Inter's chances for defending the title were not defined as excellent, but more than half of the matches are in history, and the Nerazzurri are the leader. The team has received an assessment of the performance so far from the bookmakers, who for the upcoming derby with Lazio provide odds below 1.50 for the victory of the great from Milan.
Here, however, we must be careful, despite the unconvincing game of the Eagles and their temporary position outside the places giving the right to participate in European club tournaments. On October 16 last year, Lazio inflicted Inter's only loss of the season, scoring exactly 20% of the Nerazzurri's 3-1 goal. Imobile and company played a great match and although they fell behind at the break, they found the strength for a complete turnaround in the second half.
However, the problem for Lazio occurs when he has to visit. The great from Rome has won in only three of the past visits and has a serious negative goal difference. At the same time, Inter is the best host, which did not win only in draws with Atalanta and Juventus. At the moment, the consecutive victories of "Giuseppe Meazza" in Serie A are five, and four of them without conceding a goal.
Sunday's match will be Inter's first for the new year, as the team's visit to Bologna this week has been postponed. Thus, the series of consecutive victories remains from seven matches. Lazio started the new year the way he finished it, but a little differently. For the third consecutive match Lazio scored three goals, but this time did not win and shared the points with Empoli at home.
With his performance in defense, it will be difficult for Lazio to claim something serious this season. 37 goals were conceded, which is not typical for the coach Maurizio Sari. Inter is the most successful team in Serie A with 49 goals scored. Recently, this rivalry offers goals, and we can be extremely pleased with the performance in the Italian derbies so far this season. Inter is convincing in front of the opponent's goal in all periods of the matches played so far and today I expect to sign in both halves.
