Napoli – Lazio
Napoli welcomes the holders of the trophy Lazio at the Stadio San Paolo in a 1/4-final game from the Coppa Italia. In these soccer matches tomorrow we will give you some preview of this match.
Napoli reached the 1/4-finals of the competition without much of an effort. Gennaro Gattuso’s team faced Perugia at home and comfortably won with 2-0. Gattuso gave minutes to some players he’s using mainly as substitutes so far, which was a chance for them to impress the manager. Both goals were scored from penalties and in both cases it was Lorenzo Insigne who put the ball in the net.
Napoli reached the 1/4-finals of Coppa Italia, but the club’s performance in the Serie A is far from what it should be. The Azzurri suffered four losses in their last five games in the league, which is the reason why Napoli are currently 11th in the standings. The sacking of Carlo Ancelotti and the appointment of Gennaro Gattuso is not giving result so far. Few days ago Napoli hosted Fiorentina at the San Paolo and suffered a 0-2 defeat.
Lazio on the other hand are a team in a fantastic shape right now. The Eagles have won 11 consecutive games in the Serie A, which is truly phenomenal. They are currently third in the Serie A, just two points behind the second Inter Milan. On Saturday Lazio hosted Sampdoria at the Olimpico and celebrated an exciting 5-1 win.
In the Coppa Italia Lazio reached the 1/4-finals after an easy 4-0 win against Cremonese at the Olimpico. Ciro Immobile scored from a penalty kick, while Patric, Parolo and Bastos also scored.
In our soccer matches tomorrow we have to say that Lazio are the team in a much better shape before this game in Naples. Napoli are having serious problems right now and it’s not clear if Gennaro Gattuso will be able to fix them.
