Napoli and Lazio will raise the curtain on Gameweek No 25 in the top flight of Italian football on Friday evening at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. I Partinopei head into the tie as clear favorites with a strong home record of ten wins and one draw in eleven league fixtures in Naples. They have continued their scintillating run of form seven days ago by beating Empoli 0-2 on the road. It was the seventh successive win across competitions for Luciano Spalletti’s men who have conceded just one goal in the process.

Lazio will also enter the tie in high spirits after managing a streak of three victories and one draw in the previous four outings in all competitions. They have been struggling a lot to break the deadlock in the home fixture against Sampdoria on Monday night, but Luis Alberto eventually made it count with a goal ten minutes from time at Stadio Olimpico. Let’s take a look at our top betting picks and predictions for this match.
Napoli vs Lazio Betting Tips
Napoli’s fans have been waiting on Scudetto for more than three decades. The team’s previous league title came in the 1989/90 season. I Partinopei are now 18 points clear atop the Serie A standings and only a miracle can prevent them from lifting the silverware come May. Luciano Spalletti’s men indeed play the most beautiful football in the country by a mile. They have been extremely tough to break down this season and especially in the last several weeks. After all, the league leaders shipped only a single goal in the previous seven games in all competitions.
Lazio have had another rollercoaster campaign so far in the season. They broke back into the top four in the league table thanks to back-to-back clean-sheet victories over Salernitana and Sampdoria in the last two rounds. I Biancocelesti have also become more meticulous at the back lately. A strong defensive display is what Maurizio Sarri’s troops will desperately need on Friday at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Napoli allowed just one goal in the last seven games across competitions
We have usually seen high-scoring thrillers in the head-to-head clashes between these rivals in recent years. Five of the last six of their meetings produced at least three goals. This season is different, though. Napoli own the best defensive record in the league by some distance with just 15 goals conceded in 24 matches. The y have been particularly tough to break down in the latest set of fixtures. In these circumstances, we are looking at the home win to nil as the best betting option at the odds of 13/8.
Each of Napoli’s last three matches ended in the same scoreline
If we count the UEFA Europa Conference League tie against Romanian champions Cluj, Lazio will travel to Naples on the back of four successive clean sheets kept. I Biancocelesti shipped only 7 goals in 11 away matches in Serie A this season. This is why we don’t expect Napoli’s red-hot attacking line to quite run riot past Sarri’s men on Friday. Taking everything into consideration, the 2-0 correct score bet looks a decent and attractive option at the 13/2 odds.
