There is the potential for this to actually be the game where Napoli are crowned champions of Serie A. Should the Partenopei win their game on Saturday against Salernitana and Lazio lose here against Inter, Napoli will be crowned champions on Matchday 32.
It is unusual for the lunch match to feature two teams fighting for a top-four spot in Serie A but that is what we have at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday. After Lazio’s stumble against Torino and Juventus’s arrival in the top four thanks to the suspension of their points penalty, everything is looking extremely tight.
Inter’s Serie A form has been awful since early March but they won last time out away at Empoli and now need to build on that if they will climb any higher than sixth.
Inter vs Lazio: Predicted line-ups
There will be a hard balance for Simone Inzaghi to strike given he still has a congested fixture list with the Champions League to keep in mind, but the importance of the top-four fight. Despite that, the team is expected to stay largely the same as the one that dispatched of Empoli with Romelu Lukaku getting the chance to build on his two goals.
Ciro Immobile is set to return to the starting eleven after his crash with a tram in Rome. He came off the bench against Torino. Danilo Cataldi is back from suspension whilst Nicolo Casale should also return to the starting eleven.
Inter predicted starting lineup vs Lazio (3-5-2): Onana; D’Ambrosio, Acerbi, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Lukaku, Correa.
Lazio predicted starting lineup vs Inter (4-3-3): Provedel; Marusic, Casale, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Alberto; Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni.
