In a derby match of round 20 of Serie A are playing the second-placed Napoli versus the fourth in the standings – Lazio. The difference is just two positions, but Napoli have 12 points more. The champion again seems obvious – Juventus, but Gli Azzurri are required to win their games until the end so they can keep their second position from Inter. The third position is seven points from Lazio, but the fight for the fourth place will be cruel – involved are also Milan, Roma and Sampdoria.
Both teams began 2019 with a win for Coppa Italia in the last weekend – Napoli won against Sassuolo (2-0), while Lazio took the victory in the game against Novara (4-1). Before the pause in the Serie A, Gli Azzurri hardly won against Bologna (3-2) with a goal in the last minutes of the game, while The Eagles drew at home against the unbeaten as guest Torino (1-1).
Napoli are the second-best home team in Serie A with 26 points from possible 30, scored 26 goals and conceded just 6. One point from Stadio San Paolo took Chievo and Roma. Lazio are also performing well at home, while as guests have won 14 points after nine fixtures. The victory at 26 December against Bologna has ended the run of The Eagles of four games without a win away from home.
Amazing home team against not that good guests. Proven specialist against young and prospective manager. We think that Carlo Ancelotti will prevail in the match against Simone Inzaghi and the three points will take the home team. The missing players of Napoli may be a problem, but we still believe that they will take the victory. I will back Napoli to Win, with Napoli 2-0 Correct Score.
