INT vs LAZ Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Inter Milan will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Lazio in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal match at San Siro Stadium, in Milan, on Thursday night (IST).
It was a defeat for both Inter Milan and Lazio at the weekend action in Serie A. Inter lost 0-1 at Torino, while Lazio came second best at home as they lost 1-2 against Juventus.
Inter out of title race!
The defeat for the Nerazzurri has all but ended their title challenge as Juventus pulled themselves further clear at the top of the table, a huge 19 points. Now, Luciano Spalletti should fancy a top-2 finish though as Napoli are just 3 points ahead of them at this stage.
But the performance they showed at the weekend would hardly help their cause. Torino may be having a good season and are more than capable of causing troubles, still for a team of Inter's pedigree and ambitions, these are the type of games they must learn to put to bed on a more regular basis.
Lazio can achieve a Champions League finish!
Lazio have their own high ambitions. A top-4 finish and a place in the Champions League is all they seek. They are not out of top-4 battle by any means despite losing the last game and sitting at a lowly 8th place.
The reality is only three points separate them and fourth-placed AC Milan. And considering there are still 48 points on offer in Serie A, things can and will certainly change till the end of the campaign.
