Lazio and Inter Milan already collided this season, it was back in October and they finished 1-1; Lautaro Martinez scored for Inter Milan, while Sergej Milinkovic-Savic did it for Lazio. Both teams finished the game with 10 players after Ciro Immobile and Stefano Sensi were ejected.
That was one of the five draws that Inter Milan have recorded during the season.
Last year, Inter Milan beat Lazio (1-0) at San Siro thanks to a goal from Danilo D’Ambrosio. Several months later, Lazio took revenge and beat Inter Milan (2-1) at their home turf; Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic scored the goals.
Inter Milan have dominated Lazio in their last 10 Italian Serie A matches with a 5-2-3 record.

Why Bet on Inter Milan?
Inter Milan have won three of their last five Italian Serie A games. They have 47 points thanks to a 14-5-2 record, good enough for second place, two points behind AC Milan.
Yes, they just got eliminated from the Italian Cup by Juventus, but they haven’t allowed any goals in their last four Italian Serie Games, including a 2-0 victory against Juventus and a 4-0 victory against Benevento.
Now, Inter Milan can exclusively focus on winning the Italian Serie A, because they are not playing any European competitions either.
Inter Milan have scored 51 goals (best in the league) and allowed 23 (third best in the league alongside AC Milan and Udinese). Romelu Lukaku is the team’s top scorer with 14 goals (he’s followed by Lautaro Martinez with 10 goals), while Marcelo Brozovic leads the team in assists with six.
In their last 10 games against Lazio (all competitions), Inter Milan have scored 15 goals, and they finished with a clean sheet four times. They failed to score in just three games.
This season, Inter Milan have been a lot better when playing at home with an 8-1-1 record. They also have a 6-3-1 record (both against the spread and over/under) when playing at San Siro.
Why Bet on Lazio?
Right now, Lazio are in fifth place with 40 points thanks to a 12-4-5 record, but they are the only team that has won their last six games in a row. During that span, they beat title contenders (Atalanta 3-1 and AS Roma 3-0).
Unlike Inter Milan, Lazio are still participating in the current UEFA Champions League edition. They’ll be facing Bayern Munich in the Round of 16 (beginning February 23), and that’s why Simone Inzaghi (manager) could do some lineup changes until them in order to give extra rest to some players.
Regarding the Italian Serie A, Lazio have scored 36 goals (worst among the top five) and allowed 27 (second worst among the top five, AS Roma have allowed 35). As expected, Ciro Immobile is the team’s top scorer with 14 goals (he’s followed by Felipe Caicedo with six), while Sergej Milinkovic-Savic leads the assists department with six.
In their last 10 games against Inter, Lazio scored 15 goals, and finished with a clean sheet three times. They also failed to score in four of those ten matchups.
This season, Lazio have been slightly better when playing on the road with a 6-2-2 record. They also have a 5-4-1 (against the spread) and 3-5-2 (over/under) record when playing away from Rome.
Discarded Players and Projected Line-ups
