Lazio will test their recent good form when they travel to Milan to take on fellow title contenders Inter Milan in the standout game in the Italian Serie A this weekend. Lazio are one of the form teams in European football right now after their impressive run of six straight wins in the league and they would be seeking victory number seven on the bounce at the expense of a wounded Inter Milan team.

Inter Milan are still reeling from their disappointing Coppa Italia semi-final exit at the hands of Juventus. Inter Milan had trailed 2-1 in the first leg at home last week and were unable to turn it around at the home of Juventus as the two teams settled for a goalless draw in a fiery encounter in Turin on Tuesday night thus paving the way for Juventus to secure their place in the

Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi has said that the club have their destiny in their own hands with victories in their remaining league games assuring them of Champions League football. The Capital outfit have a tricky fixture against Torino this weekend and Inzaghi has urged his players to maintain the focus on the current fixture.

Speaking in his weekly conference, he said: “We have a very important match against a side with fine players who won at the Olimpico earlier this season. Attitude will count for a lot, so we must treat this as a one-off game. I asked the players not to think about the remaining fixtures, but only about Torino. Our destiny is in our hands. It’s a complicated fixture list, especially with Inter in the final match, but we have to treat Torino like a Final.”

Lazio has placed an incredible price of € 150 million on midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic amidst interest from Manchester United. The Red Devils are reportedly ready to make a move for the Serbian midfielder, who has caught the attention of several top European clubs in the last 12 months.

Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi claims that striker Ciro Immobile is starting to display his all-round talent in the game.

The 27-year-old came to the club from Sevilla just around a year ago for only around € 8.7 million. However, he came in with a spectacular 23 goals in his first season at the club. At the start of the 2017-18 campaign, he has been able to improve even more. He has been able to score 12 goals in all competitions already. And it has helped Lazio make significant progress in the league table.

Napoli kept their Champions League hopes alive with a confident 3-0 defeat of Lazio over the weekend. Jose Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne combined to redeem the plunging confidence of the team following their Italian Cup exit to Juventus.

Had Napoli failed to get the desired result, it would have put their Champions League dream in doubts. Ahead of the trip to the StadioOlimpico, Napoli were yet to lose to Lazio since April 2012.

Simone Pepe scored a vital goal for Juventus, as they managed to beat Lazio 1-0 to go top of the table. The important victory gives a much-needed breathing space for Juventus between them and Lazio.

Lazio were seen as one of the sides expected to challenge Juventus at the top of the table, but this defeat now means that they are three points behind Juventus having played a game more, effectively putting them six points behind Juventus - which is a massive difference to make up going into the rest of the season.
