Caimmobile Vs Martaku, whose your winner?
In an important weekend in Serie A the league leaders travel to the capital to face third placed Lazio. The Black and Blues come into this encounter off the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi final against Napoli at the San Siro. Following the hosts’ incredible 11 game-winning run their form has slowed a touch having not picked up back-to-back victories since mid-January. Simone Inzaghi’s men are amidst an 18-game domestic unbeaten streak to which their last loss was in the reverse fixture where Danilo D’Ambrosio’s early goal separated the two teams.
Biggest match of the season so far?
Two positions in the table and just one point separates the two sides with this match presenting the unlikely opportunity for the Eagles to reach the summit of the division. The league’s joint best defences will go head to head on Sunday evening with both sides likely to deploy a 3-5-2 formation. Juventus, on the other hand, have the much simpler task of hosting 19th placed Brescia, keeping in mind that all but an Inter Milan win will see them return to top spot. Lazio are narrow favourites, possibly due to Antonio Conte’s sides’ busy schedule of late.
Caimmobile Vs Martaku
This top of the table matchup will see the two best strike forces in the league, and arguably the world, go head to head. Starting with the hosts their front pair of Ciro Immobile and Felipe Caicedohave smashed home a whopping 33 out of Lazio’s 53 goals this campaign. The Black and Blues’ dynamic duo, alternatively, of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have equated for 28 of Inter’s 48 goals so far, leaving 20 goals accounted for by the rest of each respective team.
Neither side have been entirely convincing in recent weeks making the title race more and more interesting from a neutral perspective. Laziohave only scored once in their last two games since beating SPAL 5-1, and for Internazionale their hand has been forced to pick Daniele Padelli between the sticks. The 34-year-old was arguably at fault for both the goals they conceded in the derby.
This really is a mouth-watering game; however, I feel the strong defences and similar styles and shapes will lead to a fairly anti-climactic outcome.
