Lazio vs SSC Napoli Match Prediction

By William Hall

The tie of the round in match day five- the first midweek match day of the season- takes place on Wednesday night between Lazio and Napoli. Lazio come into the match off the back of a 2-3 win away to Genoa on Sunday, while Napoli were busy putting up six goals against poor Hellas Verona at home in a 6-0 win the same day. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Napoli won 0-3 in this fixture back in April, but they had to settle for a 1-1 draw in Naples back in November of last year. They have gone unbeaten against Lazio in their last four, however. Overall, though, the tie is all square and both sides could go ahead in it should they secure a victory in this one. Given the amount of goals both teams are scoring, you have to like the chances of seeing goals from both teams and plenty of them. But you also have got to like Napoli's chances to win as they are truly on fire, save the result in Ukraine, right now.

Lazio Preview

Lazio have began the season on fire in all competitions, and they are still yet to lose a match. The only result that left a little to be desired came when they drew against SPAL on opening day 0-0. Since then, they have rattled off four wins from four matches. They will come into the match on Wednesday night just two points back of Napoli due to that draw, but a home victory could propel them into leading the league after this round should the other results go their way. The signature win from them this season was their 4-1 home win against AC Milan upon the return from international duty. Lazio have since beaten Vitesse 2-3 in the Europa League, in comeback fashion, and then did the won by the same score against Genoa on Sunday. This time, though, they had things more in control than they did in Holland. They would find a 13th minute lead from Bastos before the first of Pietro Pellegri's goals came in the 57th minute. That started a goal-heavy second half. The red hot Ciro Immobile scored after 70 minutes to put Lazio back ahead, but they were once again hit back upon as Pellegri's second goal came three minutes later. Just as they look like dropping two points, Lazio found the winner via Immobile's second, and they come into this match on fire with Napoli. Immobile is the only man in the side with more than one goal, as he now has six in Serie A. Marco Parolo leads the team with two assists thus far.

Lazio Team News

Portuguese winger Nani is nearing a return from injury and a debut with the club, but it's not expected to happen until the end of the month. Center back Wallace and right midfielder Felipe Anderson are also out with injuries, and won't be back until October.

SSC Napoli Preview

Much like Lazio, Napoli have made a greater start in Serie A. Napoli have taken advantage of some easier fixtures to begin the season, and that has allowed them to top the table after four matches played. They've done this with Champions League fixtures thrown in, so you really have to wonder if this will be Napoli's year. They are still scoring goals for fun, and they have improved at the back quite a lot. If only they could find a way to be this lethal when they are playing the bigger sides, they would easily be champions and pushing for European honors. Napoli won after the international break away to Bologna 0-3, and then had it followed by a 1-2 defeat in Ukraine against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. The loss seemed to have shocked them back into form, however, as they went on a rampage against Benevento on Sunday. They took just three minutes to score, and it was midfielder Allan that did so. Lorenzo Insigne scored in the 15th minute, and then came Dries Mertens' near-customary goal in the 27th. The first half was done and dusted when Jose Callejon scored in the 32nd minute to end things 4-0 after the first half. Two further goals, from Mertens via penalties, came in the 65th and 90th minutes to complete the 6-0 rout. Mertens now has a total of five goals on the season, while Callejon and Piotr Zielenski each have two. Insigne leads the team with four assists, while left back Faozi Ghoulam has two to date.

SSC Napoli Team News

Napoli have no injury or suspensions to cause them to rotate here, but form and fitness could cause them to try and change a few things around in order to remain fit for the entire season.
