Lazio - Napoli Betting Preview: There's value to be found in backing the visitors to fire at least twice

Rafa Benitez's side travel to the Stadio Olimpico this evening looking to close the gap on Roma and Juventus and our tipster is backing the away side to score plenty of goals
Lazio host Napoli tonight with both sides playing after competing in Europe midweek. Vladimir Petkovic's side travelled to Poland in the Europa League, where they came away 2-0 winners, with Rafa Benitez's men returning from Germany on the back of a 3-1 loss to a somewhat depleted Borussia Dortmund.

Coral price the Lazio at 9/5 (2.80) to take all three points and try and improve their position of eighth in Serie A.

Napoli have looked impressive this season under Benitez and are currently sitting pretty in third position although they are trailing Roma and Juventus by six points and nine points respectively after the first 13 games.

Coral price them as favourites at 6/4 (2.50) to win the match. The same firm offers the draw at 9/4 (3.25).

Despite Napoli losing their last away match in Serie A to Juventus 3-0, Benitez's side have, on the whole, looked solid on the road this season.

They have recorded four wins from six matches on the road with their other defeat coming at the hands of early pace-setters Roma. Despite this form, it's worth staying away from the outright result of a Napoli win at 6/4 (2.50) with Lazio only being beaten once in eight matches at home this season.

Instead, it's worth looking at total goals from the away side, with over 1.5 standing out at 6/4 (2.50) with Coral. This bet would have paid out against Lazio in their last league match to Genoa, and with the bet also landing in four of Napoli's last six away games, it's certainly worth an investment.
