Inter Milan, boasting an impressive record, head into their Italian Super Cup semi-final against Lazio as favourites. The match, set to take place at Riyadh’s KSU Stadium, promises to be an intriguing affair.
In their last encounter in December, Inter secured a comfortable 2-0 victory over Lazio in Rome. This recent history, combined with their current unbeaten streak of 20 games across all competitions, including 14 wins, certainly tilts the odds in Inter’s favour. Lautaro Martinez, a key player for Inter, has been in fine form with three goals in his last two appearances, adding further strength to their attack.
Lazio, while in good form themselves and chasing a sixth consecutive win, have found it challenging to overcome Inter in recent times. This history of struggle against Inter suggests that the upcoming match might be an uphill battle for them.
Inter’s recent performances against Lazio have been dominant, with their last two victories against them being by a margin of two goals. Moreover, Inter’s attacking prowess is highlighted by their consistent scoring record, having netted at least twice in each of their last six wins. Therefore, a prediction favouring a 2-0 victory for Simone Inzaghi’s side seems quite plausible.
Adding to Inter’s advantage is the return of Lautaro Martinez from injury, who not only has been in excellent scoring form but also found the net in Inter’s previous win against Lazio in December. His presence on the pitch makes him a likely candidate for scoring at any time during the match.
