Serie A – Napoli-Lazio
Napoli hosts Lazio at the San Paolo in a pretty great fixture from the last 38th round of the Serie A. Both teams will try to finish the season as good as possible. Let’s take a look.
Napoli already know that they are going to finish the 2019/20 campaign at 7th place in the standings. Surely the Azzurri won’t be entirely happy with their position in the Serie A, but this season had other positives for them – Napoli won the Coppa Italia and they are facing Barcelona in the Champions League. Their season will continue after this game against Lazio.
In the previous round Napoli suffered their 12th loss in the Serie A for the season. The manager Gennaro Gattuso made a lot of changes for the team’s visit to Inter Milan, but it didn’t work well and Napoli suffered a 0-2 defeat. It’d be curious to see what kind of a line-up Gattuso will choose on Saturday.
Lazio have a pretty realistic chance to climb to second place in the standings. At this moment the capital club is just one one point behind the 2nd Inter Milan. For the Eagles this is one of the best seasons they had in recent future. The most important thing is that Lazio qualified again for the Champions League after a long absence from the competition. That’s a great achievement for the manager Simone Inzaghi and his boys.
At this moment Lazio are enjoying a run of three consecutive wins in the Serie A. In their last game they hosted Brescia and scored an easy 2-0 win at the Olimpico. Correa and Immobile’s goals were enough for the three points.
That’s our thoughts about the approaching game between Napoli and Lazio at the San Paolo. Could Lazio get the second place with a win in Naples? It’d be interesting to see.
