The Biancocelesti have been crowned as Italian champions twice and they have won the Coppa Italia seven times. They also have four Supercoppa Italiana titles, one UEFA Cup Winners Cup and one UEFA Super Cup win.
After their best success in the 1990s, they went into economic crisis in 2002. Despite their troubles, they won the Coppa Italia in 2004, 2009, 2013 and 2019. Lazio finished 8th in the final Serie A table last season.

Inter currently ranks 1st in the Serie A with a record of 4-0-0 SU after four rounds played. Inter Milan is coming off a Milan Derby win over rivals AC Milan 1-0 in their most recent match played. Inter has not yielded a goal in three out of the four matches that they have played so far.
Lazio is 5th in the Serie A table with a record of 2-1-1 SU on the season. Lazio is coming off a 2-0 victory over Parma in their most recent outing. They beat Sampdoria on opening week, drew with Roma and then lost to SPAL in Round 3.
Head to head, these two clubs have played in a total of 50 matches. Inter leads the series with 18 wins while Lazio has 15 victories. These teams played to a draw in 17 other matches. However, Inter has won half of their last 10 matches against Lazio, going 5-3-2 SU over that period. Lazio though, won their last meeting 1-0 last March 31, 2019.
Inter is the best team in the league so far and while Lazio is also in the Top 5, Inter Milan’s defense has been standout early in the season with three shutouts. I think that defense is going to be the key here as Inter rolls to a fifth straight victory against Lazio. Prediction: Inter
