🏟 Match preview
From the highs of starting the Serie A season with back-to-back wins to the lows of only one win across their next five matches (W1, D2, L2), Lazio's season has been a rollercoaster so far. They've been excellent at home overall though, going three games unbeaten here this season as part of a run of 16 without loss as the home side in Serie A (W14, D2).
They've hit 11 goals in the last three games alone, with dynamic Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinković-Savić already plundering five times this term. He also has four league goals against Inter throughout his career.
Defending champions Inter have made an unbeaten start to the defence of their Scudetto crown and rallied from behind last time out to beat Sassuolo 2-1. The Nerazzurri have scored 2+ goals in a club-record 12 consecutive league games and they've dropped only two points on the road all season.
