LAST MEETING


November 14, 2010: Lazio 2-0 Napoli

Edinson Cavani scored twice against Cagliari in their last league fixture and will be looking to add to his tally again. The Uruguay international forward has netted 22 times in the league this campaign and will be a key in breaking down what is essentially a strong Lazio defence.

M. Zárate

Position: Attacker

Games: 0

Mauro Zarate has regained the confidence of his coach Edy Reja and will start in attack. The Argentine will hope to make himself a nuisance in and around the Napoli penalty area and will aspire to get the better of the three-man Azzurri defence.

Editor's Prediction

Napoli have a strong record at home and against Lazio they will be confident of stretching that run and garnering maximum points against the Aquile.
