Maurizio Sarri takes his Lazio side to visit top of the Inter Milan in this interesting Serie A game as Italian football resumes.
Inter is looking to retain the Scudetto and the poor form of their challengers means they have a good chance of achieving that.
Their first match if 2022 was cancelled because of covid-19 and they would now look to start with a win here.
Lazio drew 3-3 in their first match of the year and know this would be a much tougher fixture for them.
The game offers them a chance to send a message to their top four rivals that they still have the desire to finish inside the Champions League places.
Inter did well in the first half of the season and they have to build on that in this second half to retain the title.
Sarri has been hired to make Lazio a top club again and he knows he has to do that to prove those who think he flopped at Juventus wrong.
