Read a preview and watch a live stream of Inter vs Lazio.
Where: San Siro, Milan
When: Saturday May 10, 19:45 BST
The race for Europe is on as Inter Milan host Lazio at the San Siro on Saturday night, with both teams looking to secure a place in the Europa League next season.
The Nerazzurri remain in fifth place despite their defeat in the Derby della Madonnina last week, a game in which they failed to register a single shot on target.
Walter Mazzarri didn’t attempt to cover up the disappointment and conceded that they didn’t play well, but he has urged his players to pick themselves up and secure the necessary points to retain fifth place with just two games in the season remaining.
Meanwhile, the penultimate match of the campaign will see an emotional Javier Zanetti bid farewell to San Siro, as the 40-year-old prepares to make his final home appearance after 19 seasons with the club.
Over in the capital, coach Edy Reja has insisted that his side still believe in Europe after their dramatic 3-3 draw with Verona last weekend ensured that they sit in tenth place but just two points adrift of sixth-placed Torino.
If they are to displace their Turin rivals then they will likely need maximum points from the last two games, but with Inter looking to end the season on a high and protect their own position, it will likely be a difficult task.
The Biancocelesti won this corresponding fixture 3-1 last season, but with Federico Marchetti and Helder Postiga ruled out, they will need to make adjustments.
The race for Europe has proven to be an exhilarating journey for a significant group of teams, and the pressure is on these two sides to take all three points.
