Lazio can edge an entertaining live Serie A clash in Naples on Saturday night.
Napoli v Lazio – Saturday 19:45, BT Sport Europe
Napoli continued their Juventus taboo with their sixth straight defeat in Turin to lose ground on the league leaders. They’ve now lost three of their last five Serie A games and their frustration grew when being held by Besiktas mid-week. An in-form Lazio side arrive in Naples after winning four of a six-game unbeaten run to move one point ahead of their hosts.
Ciro Immobile netted for the fifth straight game and his form has helped Lazio score 14 in their last six so they’ll certainly be a threat to a Napoli side that’s kept just one clean sheet in their last eight in all competitions. Both teams scoring certainly seems likely here as Napoli have drawn a blank in just one of their last 43 home fixtures.
However, we’re willing to take a chance on Lazio to win and both teams to scoreas a few cracks are starting to appear in Napoli’s usually pristine home form. Last time out they took until the final 10 minutes to see off a poor Empoli side while prior to that they suffered consecutive defeats at the Stadio San Paolo for the first time since 2012: firstly against Roma and then to Besitkas in the Champions League. Additionally, Lazio have won three of their last seven trips to top-six sides, despite conceding in each victory, making 7.5 about a Lazio win and both teams to score value.
