On January 28, Lazio and Napoli will square off at the Stadio Olimpico stadium in Rome, Italy.
Despite being one of Italy’s best teams, Lazio was humiliated by Inter in the SuperCoppa semifinal. The 5 straight victories that the Biancocelesti were riding high on had put them only a single point behind 4th-place Fiorentina. However, Lazio gave up numerous opportunities, appeared unable of stopping Simone Inzaghi’s team’s extended possession periods, and finished the game with no shots on goal. It appeared as though Lazio and their head coach, Maurizio Sarri, would want to stay in the league and not be in Saudi Arabia. In fact, Sarri’s team has kept 6 clean sheets in their last 12 games, and 5 of Lazio’s victories have come by a single goal (4 of the games have ended 1-0). In his previous 6 Serie A games, Mattia Zaccagni hit the target twice.
Maybe Napoli can’t be competitive right now because Victor Osimhen and Frank Zambo-Anguissa aren’t playing. Walter Mazzarri is aware that his team hasn’t been able to play as fluidly as they did the previous year and that the defense needs greater cover. Napoli has only preserved 2 clean sheets in their past 8 games and has now endured 7 Serie A defeats this season, 3 more than they had in 2022–2023. They will probably stick to playing on the counter and not score many goals until their best striker from Nigeria returns. SSC Napoli has lost their previous 3 matches, although their performance has been largely good lately. They defeated Salernitana 2-1 in the first round and Fiorentina 3-0 in the second. The winning streak was broken by Inter, who defeated them 0-1 in the match. In their previous 6 Serie A road games, SSC Napoli has earned a respectable 3 wins, with 7 goals and 8 conceded.
