Italian Serie A match preview 1 August 2020 Napoli vs Lazio. Lazio could beat Napoli home and away in the same season for the first time since 1993-94.
Lazio have plenty to play for, as they could still snatch second place, give Ciro Immobile Capocannoniere, the Golden Boot and beat Gonzalo Higuain’s Serie A goals record.
It would be particularly fitting for Immobile to break the record of 36 goals in a single season by scoring at the Stadio San Paolo, where it was set in May 2016, especially as the Lazio striker is from the Naples area.
Napoli already have their sights on the Champions League trip to Barcelona and could rest some players for the final round.
Stat fact: Lazio could beat Napoli home and away in the same Serie A season for the first time since 1993-94.
