As Inter Milan prepare to host Lazio at the iconic San Siro on Sunday evening, the Serie A champions look to cap off a stellar season with a memorable home finale.

Despite having already secured their 20th Scudetto, Inter's focus remains sharp, aiming to finish strong against a Lazio side vying for European qualification.

Match Preview

Inter Milan

Inter Milan, under Simone Inzaghi, have been in remarkable form this season, with their recent 5-0 thrashing of Frosinone demonstrating their offensive might.

Lautaro Martinez, leading the Capocannoniere rankings, scored in that match, bringing Inter's total goals to 101 for the season.

The Nerazzurri have also impressed defensively, maintaining 21 clean sheets, a club record.

Lazio

Conversely, Lazio's away form has been inconsistent, but they remain a threat, sitting within striking distance of Serie A's top six.

Under Igor Tudor, Lazio have secured 16 points from their last seven matches, showcasing a revitalized defence.

Their recent 2-0 victory over Empoli is a testament to their resilience and tactical discipline.

Team News

Inter Milan will be nearly at full strength, with only former Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi a doubt. Key players like Alessandro Bastoni, Benjamin Pavard, and Hakan Calhanoglu are expected to return to the starting lineup alongside Martinez and Marcus Thuram.

Martinez, with 24 goals this season, aims to join Inter legends Mauro Icardi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic by scoring at least 25 goals in a single Serie A campaign.

Lazio face a selection dilemma in goal, with Ivan Provedel returning from injury but deputy Christos Mandas performing admirably.

Felipe Anderson, a standout performer against Inter, is set to make his 250th Serie A appearance and will likely support either Taty Castellanos or Ciro Immobile upfront. Lazio will also need to adjust their defence due to the suspension of Alessio Romagnoli.

Prediction

Inter Milan, with their formidable home record and depth of talent, are favourites to win.

However, Lazio's recent form and defensive solidity under Tudor make them a formidable opponent.

Expect a closely contested match, but Inter's attacking prowess should see them edge out a 2-1 victory, taking them closer to a record points total.
