Serie A matchday 22 will see Inter Milan go up against Lazio. While Inter Milan will be coming on the back of a draw against Juventus in Coppa Italia, the draw came after a loss in the first leg, seeing them getting knocked out of the tournament. On the other hand, Lazio will take onto pitch after a 1-0 win over Cagliari.
The Monday’s game is going to be a huge one for both the sides, as a win for Inter Milan will fire them to the top of the league table, ahead of their city rival AC Milan. Meanwhile, a win for Lazio will see them displace champions Juventus at the 3rd position in the tally. With season defining position at stake, one can expect both the sides to go full-throttle and aim for three points.
Antonio Conte will be more than happy to welcome the visitors as he will have full squad available at his disposal. One can expect him to line-up the squad in his classic 3-5-2 formation for this game. The Nerazzurri have been phenomenal this season as they are the best attacking side, and also boast the second-best defensive record. A player to keep an eye on will be Romelu Lukaku.
The visitors will have almost full-squad with them for the trip to Milan. Inzaghi will be missing only Jean-Daniel Akpro and Luiz Felipe for the game. While the side sits at 6th in the points tally, they have scored the least goals among top-7 teams this season. The vital factor in their games, contrary to the belief of many, has been their defence. The side, on paper, are not stronger either in attack or defense, and therefore, will want fortune in their favour. Player to watch for them will be Ciro Immobile.
The game promises to be an exciting one as two different kind of teams will clash against one another. One can expect Antonio Conte’s man to go on attack right from the beginning with the help of their wingbacks, who are yet to disappoint this season. Lazio will patiently wait for the right opportunity to open up before getting on attack. So, one can expect Inter to take the charge of the game, while Lazio will hold back.
For Fantasy team, it is recommended to have wingbacks from Inter, central midfielder from Inter, attacking midfielders from Lazio, and combo in forward line.
