Napoli vs Lazio: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24

Serie A champions host former coach Maurizio Sarri as he takes his Lazio to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona this weekend. The Partenopei have had a perfect start to this Serie A season, while the Aquile have lost each of their first two matches.


Napoli continued their positive start to the season with a win against Sassuolo in the previous round, and they will face a Lazio side that is struggling to perform on Saturday evening.

The Partenopei come into this Serie A Matchday 3 fixture on the back of consecutive victories against Frosinone and the Neroverdi. Star striker Victor Osimhen has maintained his impressive scoring form with three goals in two matches whilst right-back and captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo has emerged as an unlikely source of goals with two goals in as many games.

Meanwhile, the Aquile have had a nightmare start to the 2023/24 Serie A season losing to Lecce and Genoa. Both games were winnable on paper, but now they have to face the reigning champions of Italy, and the Biancocelesti should have a difficult time containing them.

Napoli won the 2022/23 Serie A title and Lazio finished in second, but the Aquile do not look anywhere close to replicating last season’s form. If the Biancocelesti do not find any extra motivation or inspiration, then the Partenopei could make things embarrassing for former coach Maurizio Sarri.

Napoli vs Lazio: Predicted line-ups

Rudi Garcia will be expected to make just one change to his Napoli starting line-up, replacing Giacomo Raspadori on the left wing with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who should be fit to start after coming off the bench against Sassuolo.

As for Sarri, he will probably persist with his preferred 11 despite the two defeats. However, there is the possibility of Matias Vecino starting in midfield instead of Daichi Kamada while Pedro is a doubt due to ankle problems.

Napoli predicted XI vs Sassuolo (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Jesus, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia

Lazio predicted XI vs Napoli (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Casale, Romagnoli, Marusic; Kamada, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni
