Lazio are in prime form entering the match after winning their last six matches on the bounce in Serie A. Simone Inzaghi’s men have put themselves in contention for a top-four place and are sitting only nine points off the pace of AC Milan at the top of the table. A victory today would close the gap on the Rossoneri as well as Inter. Ciro Immobile’s strike was enough to overcome Cagliari last time out .
Inter were knocked out of the Coppa Italia in the semi-finals by Juventus during the week. Antonio Conte’s men failed to respond to their 2-1 loss in the first leg, drawing 0-0 at Allianz Stadium. The Nerazzurri now have to turn the page to focus on Serie A where they can move to the top of the table with a victory tonight. The club are unbeaten in their last five league matches heading into the contest.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Serie A clash between Inter and Lazio at San Siro.
