Second semifinal tonight at 20:45gmt+1: Napoli - Lazio. First leg in Rome ended 1-1.
NAPOLI - LAZIO
First round ended 1-1. A good result for Napoli which would reach the final even with a 0-0 draw.
Playing for the 0-0, is not Napoli's attitude and probably playing a defensive match could be dangerous, since Benitez's squad is used to attack constantly.
Napoli has collected only 2 points in the last 5 league matches, while Lazio has collected 7 wins in a row.
Pioli's team is playing a great football: very offensive and high rhythms: will they be able to keep these performances till the end of the season?
We have some doubts about it...
In our opinion the best choice is GOAL due to the offensive characteristics of both squads and 1X as alternative.
We believe Napoli will have the best in the end because Benitez has showed he is a "Cup Coach" on several occasions and generally speaking Napoli is hard to beat in its home matches, especially at night with a full stadium supporting the locals.
NAPOLI: Andujar, Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Strinic,
Inler, Gargano, Gabbiadini, Hamsik, Mertens, Higuain.
LAZIO: Berisha, Basta, De Vrij, Mauricio, Braafheid, Biglia, Parolo, Candreva, Mauri, Felipe Anderson, Klose.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 2-1
