Ten days after the Serie A clash, Napoli and Lazio will meet again, this time in the quarter-finals of the Italian Cup. The match will take place at the San Paolo stadium on Tuesday (8:15 pm). Both teams played a game in this competition and easily overcame the less rated opponents Perugia and Cremonese.
In last week's duel, Napoli lost 1-0 at the Olympic Stadium, in Rome, putting an end to a series of five consecutive victories against the Roman team. A goal by Ciro Immobile guaranteed the Lazio triumph - was the only game in the last five that have not witnessed more than 2.5 goals. Playing at home against Lazio, Napoli has four consecutive games without losing.
The team led by Gattuso is far from the best moment. On Saturday was defeated at home by Fiorentina (0-2). Napoli lost three of her last five games (in the league they won just one of the last 12). The Neapolitan side has conceded goals in four of their last five games and only two of them have produced more than 2.5 goals.
In a better moment comes Lazio, who is making a season at the level of the best years of the club. Ciro Immobile has been the main figure of the season - The Italian striker has scored 23 goals in 19 Serie A games. Four of Lazio's last five games have witnessed more than 2.5 goals.
Missing players Napoli: Dries Mertens, Kalidou Koulibaly and Kevin Malcuit are injured. Faouzi Ghoulam is doubtful.
Missing players Lazio: Adam Marusic, Danilo Cataldi and Ricardo Kishna are injured.
Despite playing away, we bet on a Lazio triumph in Napoli and move forward in the competition.
