Inter vs Lazio: Recent History
Inter have continued their strong work this term and look on track to lift at least one trophy by the end of the season. Inzaghi’s side sit top of the Serie A table after 20 matches, picking up 16 wins and three draws, leaving them two points ahead of challengers Juventus.
The Nerazzurri have impressed in their last two Supercoppa Italiana outings, winning the title against Milan and Juventus over the last two years.
Lazio have finally started to generate some momentum this term, winning their last five consecutive matches across Serie A and the Coppa Italia. They sit just a point behind fourth place Fiorentina and have qualified for the Round of 16 of the Champions League, where they’ll face Bayern Munich.
The Biancocelesti last appeared in the Supercoppa Italiana in 2019, where they beat Juventus 3-1. Inzaghi was in the dugout for that victory, and he’s carried that touch to Inter in recent years.

Inter’s only absence is wing back Juan Cuadrado, who has missed the majority of this season due to an Achilles tendon injury.
Lazio cannot count on forward Valentin Castellanos, who is out with an adductor muscle injury, and defender Patric is also in doubt due to a shoulder concern.
