Lazio vs Inter

Lazio were the favorites to take home all 3pts from their trip to Torino last time out, but the game proved much tighter than anyone expected. Both defenses came out on top during the 90-minutes, keeping clean sheets, and the frustration was clear to see on the Lazio players' faces as Immobile, Milinkovic-Savic, and Lazzari were all booked deep into time added on. I Biancocelesti will want to bounce back in front of the home fans, but they won’t have an easy task. Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Patryk Dziczek (Heart Condition) will miss out.

Inter Milan was always expected to secure all 3pts at home to Spezia, and the hosts did not let their fans down. Martinez broke the deadlock in the 35th minute after good work from his strike partner Lukaku. Early in the second forty-five, Calhanoglu fired Inter into a 2-0 lead, and 8-minutes from time, Correa wrapped up the points with a third goal for the hosts. I Nerazzurri head to this match after two successes in the opening two rounds, but it’s never easy to play in Rome. Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi has to choose a team with limited availability. Gabriel Brazão (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Dalbert (Cruciate Ligament Injury), and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Hamstring Injury) will miss out on this game.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

Inter hasn’t been very successful against Lazio away from home lately, as they failed to win on the previous three occasions. It will be the toughest match for the visitors since the beginning of the campaign, and we think the hosts might remain undefeated in front of their crowd.

Goals Market Prediction

Neither team managed to keep the clean sheet in their previous five encounters. Since both sides have big attacking potential, we expect a similar scenario on Friday evening. Therefore, the BTTS Yes pick should cash again.

Lazio AH +0.5 @ 2.00

BTTS Yes @1.60

Correct score 1:1 @ 7.50

Fiorentina vs Napoli

Napoli had started off well into the new Serie A season with 2 straight wins in search of 3 consecutive victories here in Florence should see resistance! Despite Napoli letting go of their key players such as defender Kalidou Koulibaly to Chelsea and trio of strikers (Arkadiusz Milik, Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens), their firepower had not reduced!

Fiorentina last season had a poor run and will determine to improve this season. They had also sold Federico Chiesa to Juventus for €34m however they had shopped for a free transfer from Real Madrid's Luca Jovic as a replacement. Firepower also had not reduced too much.

Over 2.5 @19.4

Juventus vs Roma

Italian champions continuously from 2012 to 2020, Juventus have been much less to their advantage for two seasons. Last year, the Old Lady had to settle for 4th place but still preserved the essentials by winning the previous qualifying jump seat for the Champions League. During the preparation, the Bianconeri did not really shine, with one win, one draw, and two defeats. On the other hand, they did not miss their start to the championship by quite clearly dominating Sassuolo at home on the 1st day, 3-0. Last Monday, Juve lost points at Sampdoria 0-0. Therefore, they look forward to improving their game and securing another home victory.

Roma missed out on qualifying for the Champions League again last season. For the first season on the bench of Jose Mourinho, the Eternal City club still stood out by winning the very first edition of the Europa League Conference. After an encouraging preparation of 4 wins, one draw, and two losses, the Giallorossi won their first two league matches. Although unconvincing in the game, they bagged two wins against Salernitana 0-1 and against promoted Cremonese last Monday 1-0. I Giallorossi have been unlucky since a couple of players are sidelined due to injuries, but they are confident to continue their winning streak.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

It is going to be an interesting clash in which both teams have the chance to pick up points. Therefore, we won’t be surprised to see these two sides finishing the game without a winner.

Goals Market Prediction

Their matches at Allianz Stadium haven’t been very efficient since only two out of the last eight went over a 2.5 margin. Neither team has conceded so far, and it might remain the case after this clash.

Draw @ 3.20

BTTS No @ 2.00

Correct score 0:0 @ 9.00

Fiorentina vs Napoli

Fiorentina play host to Napoli at their Stadio Artemio Franchi on day 3 of the new Serie A campaign. The Viola failed to turn their dominance into victory in a goalless draw with their local rivals Empoli, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Sunday’s showdown. Despite failing to impress in the Tuscan derby, summer signing Luka Jovic should continue to lead the line for the hosts, while both Gaetano Castrovilli and Igor are out of contention with injuries. Fiorentina wants to be involved in the continental spots battle this season, and they look forward to continuing with good displays.

On the other hand, the Neapolitans aim to build on back-to-back wins over Verona and Monza. The away team scored for fun at the start of the season and given that Fiorentina had anything but a good performance against Empoli, an away win should be considered. They enjoyed a great start last season as well but couldn’t challenge for the title. This time, they want it to be different. Thanks to a mostly healthy squad, Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti has only one fitness concern to worry about. Diego Deme (foot injury) will not be in action.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

It is going to be an exciting clash since it’s never easy to play in Firenze. Nevertheless, Napoli has been very confident so far, and we think they can return home with a win.

Goals Market Prediction

Napoli has been very efficient in the first two games, and they should pick up where they left off. Clashes between these two teams have been high-scoring, and this one should also go over a 2.5 margin.

Napoli to Win @ 2.15

Over 2.5 FT @ 1.80

Correct score 1:3 @ 15.00
