There is no doubt that the clash between Lazio Roma and Internazionale Milano will be the highlight game of the 24th round of the Italian Serie A. The highly expected battle will take place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Sunday, 16th of February at 19:45.
Lazio narrowly won at Parma in the previous round while Inter beat their city rivals 4-2 in the Derby Della Madonnina
The Biancocelesti, coached by Simone Inzaghi, enter the fray on the back of a narrow 1-0 away win at Stadio Ennio Tardini against Parma. The sole goal of that tight encounter was scored by the Ecuadorian striker, Felipe Caicedo, in the 41st minute of the game. Prior to that round, Lazio has been held to an unfortunate nil-nil home draw by Hellas Verona, which came as a surprise for most of the pundits out there.
On the other hand, the team managed by Antonio Conte’s head into the tie after a superb comeback victory at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza over their eternal rivals, AC Milan. Ante Rebic and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have scored for AC Milan in the last five minutes of the first half, but Inter struck back with four goals in the second half, with Marcelo Brozovic, Matias Vecino, Stefan de Vrij and Romelu Lukaku all getting on the scoresheet. Prior to this win, Inter secured an easy victory on the road at Udinese Calcio.
The battle for the Scudetto has become very exciting over the past few weeks, with Inter and Juventus tied on 54 points, followed closely by Lazio who are just one point behind. La Vecchia Signora holds a mouth-watering record of eight consecutive Serie A titles at the moment, but this season seems to be a bit different as they have some really hungry contestants. Furthermore, Juventus are also looking to bring home the Champions League trophy this year, and that has become an obsession for both their fans and also for Cristiano Ronaldo & Co. As for the Scudetto, the last time Inter won it was in the 2009/10 season, while Lazio managed to bring the title at the Olimpico back in the 1999/2000 season.
