Napoli vs Lazio by Rahul

Napoli
VS
Lazio
Napoli have managed to secure the services of Pepe Reina in goal; but since his lack of playing football regularly and his ageing days, you can see him leaking goals consistently. He managed to keep his 1st clean sheet in the Europa League against a poor Club Brugge side. Napoli's poor defensive efforts have seen them conceded 6 goals in their 3 Italian Serie A games so far, with a back 4 of Albiol, Chirches, Maggio and Hysaj.

 

Up front Napoli boast a host of talent with the likes of Insigne, Mertens and Higuain up front along with a supporting cast including Hamsik, Callejon, Lopes & Gabbiadini to give them additional firepower. They have managed to score 10 goals in their 4 competitive games so far. When we look back at last season, Napoli's games going back to April in the Serie A, which is now 12 games has seen them go for a minimum of 3 goals in each of those games, so when can expect entertainment tonight.

 

Lazio have been fairly average as compared to last campaign where they finished third, as they have had to sell a lot of their players to balance the books. With a back 4 that consists Basta, Mauricio, Hoet and Radu; who have fairly limited experience comparatively have kept only one clean sheet so far against a poor Udinese team. In the first 2 games that preceded Udinese; Lazio leaked 5 goals in those games. In their last 5 games they have conceded 9 goals in that time and they were treated to a goal fest when they got thumped 3-0 by Leverkusen in the league.

 

In this game they finally face a good attacking team in the Serie A in Napoli; who will always be on the edge looking for a goal especially since they have failed to win a game so far this campaign. The game between the 2 sides back in May was for the Champions League spot which saw Napoli lose 4-2 at home to Lazio; and the fans will be looking forward to such a repeat entertaining fixture in this encounter.

 

I expect goals to continue and I am backing over 2.5 goals in this encounter much like it has landed in the last 12 Napoli games and in 4 out of the last 5 Lazio games in Serie A.
