Lazio is in need of a signature win in Serie A this season and the club will have an opportunity to snatch one in its upcoming fixture against Napoli. Lazio is currently five points behind Napoli in the league table this season. A win for Lazio can inch the side closer to a top-four standing but a winless result could draw the side further away.
Former Lazio defender Giuseppe Biava has noticed Lazio’s recent struggles but notes that the club can possibly flip the switch on its season in the upcoming contest against Napoli. And for one, he adds that the absence of two key Napoli talents could possibly give Lazio a much-needed advantage in the fixture. Biava previewed Lazio’s key game in comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet Cittaceleste.
With Napoli, it is a big match that perhaps awakens the ardor of Inzaghi’s men. The absence of Mertens and Insigne can be a good point in their favor. It will be difficult for the Biancocelesti. Gattuso’s men are a great team with few weaknesses.
Dries Mertens will miss the fixture due to an ankle injury while Lorenzo Insigne will be unavailable due to a red card suspension. The two have combined to log 16 goal involvements in league play this season.
