Manager Simone Inzaghi faces his former club for the first time as he takes his Inter Milan side to the Stadio Olimpico for an Italian Serie A clash with Lazio. The hosts have found things difficult without their former boss and could be in for a tough time against the reigning champions.

Lazio were not at their best last time out in Serie A as they suffered a 3-0 defeat to Bologna. They dominated the possession but struggled to find the net without injured striker Ciro Immobile.

It has been a tough start to the season for Lazio under new manager Maurizio Sarri with just one win in their last five matches. However, they remain solid at home and claimed a 3-2 derby victory over bitter rivals Roma in their last fixture at the Stadio Olimpico.

Defending has been a major problem for Lazio, who have conceded 20 goals in their last five Serie A matches. They often attempt to balance things out in attack but are likely to struggle against the champions without injured striker Ciro Immobile.

Inter Milan's title defence has not been particularly smooth having dropped some needless points already this season. They remain unbeaten however, and are four points off Serie A leaders Napoli.

Manager Simone Inzaghi has led the champions to five Serie A wins from seven matches this season. They have also impressed on their travels with three wins in their last four away matches, including a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo in their previous fixture on the road.

Inter Milan are the leading scorers in Serie A this season and can count a 6-1 victory over Bologna among their results. However, they have kept just one clean sheet in seven matches this term.

How the bookies view it

Inter Milan have the edge among the bookies at 5/4 with William Hill while a victory for Lazio is priced at 37/15 by Vbet. A draw is set at odds of 5/2 by betfair.

Head to head

Lazio have a 22-21 edge with 21 draws from 64 previous matches against Inter Milan. The champions were unbeaten in this fixture last season, earning a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Olimpico before running out 3-1 winners at home.

Players to watch

Ciro Immobile is doubtful for Saturday’s clash and with the striker likely to miss out, Felipe Anderson and Pedro will be the ones tasked with providing the spark in attack. Paddy Power has Anderson at 4/1 to score anytime while betfair is also offering 4/1 on Pedro in the same market.

Lautaro Martinez is unlikely to return from the international break in time for Saturday’s clash so Edin Dzeko will be the one to watch for Inter Milan having scored six goals this season. The striker has also found the net in his last two appearances against Lazio and is priced at 31/21 by SBK to score anytime.

Anything else catch the eye?

Lazio saw over 3.5 goals in their last fixture and with both teams shipping goals at the moment, a similar outcome could be on the cards at 17/10 with BetVictor. Over 2.5 goals could also be considered at 20/29 with MansionBet.

Both teams scored in the second half in their last meeting and could be set for a repeat at 15/8 with betfair.
