Lazio Roma vs Napoli (Serie A, 18.01.2015)

Serie A gives way to a highly entertaining match between third and fourth place as Lazio get ready to host Napoli. The two teams are separated by one point only, but Lazio are looking sharp when on Stadio Olimpico where they won the last three matches with 3-0, while Napoli come from a defeat against Juventus and will be eager to prove it was just a fluke.

The Biancocelesti have Felipe Anderson, Miroslav Klose and Stefano Mauri to look out for goals while Napoli relies on Higuain, Callejon and Zapata. However, Lazio received a blow because Anderson was ruled out of competition for at least several weeks with a knee injury and Marchetti is suspended. Napoli will be without Michu and Insigne, while Ghoulam is taking part in the African Nations Cup. Lazio are on an unbeaten run of 10 matches, Napoli were on one of three when they lost against Juve, but the visitors do display a better form in their head to head games where they won three out of four matches while Lazio walked away with only one point.
As stated above Napoli have been in a rather inconsistent form, but they do not have problems scoring, and Rafa Benitez has to inspire his team to do better in away games where they tend to concede early. The stake for this match is high: the third place is the last one to give Champions League access, and Napoli need to gain some distance from Sampdoria with the same number of points, but separated by the goal difference.

888sport give Lazio the edge in this match with 2.55 odds, a draw has 3.20 odds, and a Napoli win 2.90, which is the exact same market we’re betting 7 units on. Both teams to score has 1.76 odds, over 2.5 goals 2.04, Lazio for both halves 3.95, Napoli 4.50 and both teams to score in both halves 14.00 odds. Lazio with -1 has 4.40 odds, Napoli with a +1 has 1.21 and Higuain to score has 2.70 odds.
