Serie A Preview | Lazio vs. Inter: Inzaghi returns to the Olimpico

by | Oct 14, 2021 14:33

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi returns to the Italian capital to face his former side Lazio, who have been asked to react after the setback against Bologna last time.

Lazio President Claudio Lotito wants a response after lacklustre performance ahead of the international break and the Biancocelesti will get an opportunity to make things right against the reigning champions.

On top of that, Inzaghi returns to his former ground and the Aquile are hoping to give him a hard time at the Olimpico.

Lazio should have Ciro Immobile back from injury and are expected to play with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto on either side of Lucas Leiva in the middle.

Felipe Anderson and Pedro Rodriguez should be ready to feature against the Nerazzurri, who feared Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa wouldn’t make the game due to a physical issues sustained during international duty with Argentina.

But Martinez returned for his national team this week and both him and Correa should be able to feature against the Biancocelesti, who are without suspended Francesco Acerbi.

Hakan Calhanoglu is also expected to play in the capital, with Matteo Darmain ready to start at right.

    Just remember, Play all your starters, run them into the ground and make sure you play the same team in Champions League because you are playing the POT D team in Sheriff and Inter is the POT A team in the group even though the Champions League Group D standings say otherwise !!!
