Napoli challenge Lazio at the Maradona to take another step towards a Scudetto that appears ever closer. The eighteen-point lead over the second-placed side is a margin that is very difficult to disperse, but Spalletti does not want any slumps and above all he is keeping his attention high to prevent the Champions League – the return match against Eintracht will take place on Tuesday – from overshadowing the goal that is now within reach.
The next match will be a difficult one because Sarri’s Lazio are fourth and in the running for qualification for the next Champions League and arrive at the Maradona in good health with four consecutive useful results. A respectable streak that pales, however, in front of Napoli’s seven wins in a row.

Napoli v Lazio, Spalletti’s choices
Little turnover for Napoli, Spalletti will be without the disqualified Mario Rui and the injured Raspadori. Completing the defence will be Olivera, while in midfield the only change will be Elmas in place of Zielinski, the ballot in attack is still open with Politano and Lozano vying for a place. Jewels Osimhen and Kvaratshalia will not be rested, with the former having netted for seven games in a row and looking to continue his run towards the Serie A top scorer title.
Napoli v Lazio, Sarri’s choices
Sarri has far more problems as he will face the most prolific attack in Serie A with the defence to be invented. The hope is to recover Romagnoli who could return and partner Patric, otherwise it will be Gila’s turn as Radu is injured and Casale disqualified. Pedro is back from a hand injury, with a brace he will be able to be in the match but he is not at his best and so in attack next to Immobile will be Zaccagni and Felipe Anderson.
