Serie A: Lazio vs Nerazzurri

Lazio hosted Inter Milan to the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon to seek a way to recover from a massive defeat to Atalanta BC earlier this week. While the visitors had 2 wins in Serie A, Antonio Conte saw his side concede five goals against Fiorentina and Benevento.

Felipe Caicedo hopes to keep his place in the Lazio attack after scoring a consoling goal for his side against Atalanta. Danilo Cataldi is pushing to take Lucas Leiva's place in midfield, but Vedat Muriqi is still not arguing over a positive coronavirus test. Lazio's better performance will give the Nerazzurri a lead over defending champions Juventus, although they will need to improve to overtake opponents who will be eager to return from their defeat to Atalanta. Despite being aware of the threat posed by their title competitors, Simone Inzaghi would not have expected his side would succumb to a 4-1 defeat at the Stadio Olimpico. lead 3-0 before the break, regaining the effectiveness of Lazio's away match with half time remaining. From a psychological perspective. 

Lautaro Martinez could return to the starting line-up after coming on from the bench against Benevento and still open fire with a familiar slap of treatment. Alessandro Bastoni and Nicolo Barella could also earn a place in defense and midfield respectively when Conte reinstates his players. Marcelo Brozovic is hoping to replace Arturo Vidal, who went 52 minutes into his debut. Before the final days of the summer transfer window, Conte still found himself juggling options in his squad as he wanted to add more. The club's finances may prevent any major signings from being made before the end of the year, but the Inter first-team are now motivated to prove that there is no need to add new faces. Inter are far from convincing in the victories over Fiorentina and Benevento, despite scoring 9 in those two wins. However, Conte knows that this team is still doing a lot with experienced names that have strengthened the team in the defense, midfield and attack.
