Lazio hosts Inter in round 8 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Saturday, October 16h at Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
In the summer, Lazio was renewed. During the transfer window, Felipe Anderson returned to the club after a rather bad time at West Ham United. Beyond that, the Romans got the experienced Pedro Rodriguez. And the management changed the coach. Simone Inzaghi moved to Inter. His place at the helm of the Eagles was taken by Maurizio Sarri. Key players remained in the team, and top newcomers came, but despite all the updates, the start of the 2021/2022 season can hardly be called successful. The Romans gained only three victories in seven rounds of Serie A. As a result, they were placed on the 6th line of the Italian championship standings. After an emotional victory in the derby over Roma (3-2), which is led by Jose Mourinho, Sarri's charges managed to suffer a romp from Bologna (3-0), conceding two goals by the 17th minute of the match.

In the summer, Inter lost Romelu Lukaku, Ashraf Hakimi, Antonio Candreva, Matteo Politano, and some other players. A lot of newcomers appeared in the roster. Beyond that, the coaching staff has changed. Instead of Antonio Conte, Simone Inzaghi now works with the Black and Blues. Internazionale is one of the three Serie A teams that have not lost in the championship yet. As a result, the Black and Blues round out the top three of the tournament standings. Before the break for the matches of the national teams, the reigning champion had two away matches. In the Champions League, the Italians failed to upset the goalkeeper of Shakhtar Donetsk (0-0), and in the Italian championship, they won a comeback victory over Sassuolo (1-2), scoring their goals in the second half.
We will see the match between two strong opponents. Both teams are fighting for places in the European Cup zone. Head-to-head confrontations always turn out to be interesting, and the sides try not to yield to each other. Over the past two seasons, Lazio and Inter have crossed paths four times. In three cases, the teams exchanged goals. In the current championship of Italy, the Eagles and Snakes are in the TOP-5 teams, which have the highest indicator in terms of an exchange of goals. For the Romans, it is 5/7 (71.4%), and for the Milanese — 6/7 (85.7%). We expect goals in both nets in the upcoming game.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score — yes
