Lazio (LAZ) host third-placed Inter Milan (INT) in Gameweek 8 of the Serie A 2021/22 season at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday, October 16. The game will kick off at 9:30 PM IST.

LAZ vs INT Dream11 Prediction

Inter Milan, unbeaten in the Serie A 2021/22 season and four points adrift of leaders Napoli, start as favourites to win against Lazio. The Nerazzurri lead the head-to-head record against Lazio (65 wins, 37 defeats and 54 draws in 165 meetings).

LAZ, on the flip side, have won just one of their last five Serie A home games against Inter and need to carve out a positive result to end the defending champion's unbeaten start to the season.

LAZ vs INT Dream11 tips for Serie A 2021/22

Top tip: Best forward

It is certainly a no-brainer that fantasy players should draft in Edin Dzeko as their first-choice forward for LAZ vs INT. Since switching over from AS Roma, the Bosnian star has scored six goals and two assists in seven league games already this term and will look to consolidate the tally against Lazio.

Top tip: Best midfielder

Lazio's Felipe Anderson starts as the top midfielder in this contest. The Brazilian has started the season confidently with two goals and two assists, and must create some goal-scoring opportunities against an Inter defence that has leaked just eight goals so far.

Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper

Milan Skriniar, with 100 fantasy points, will be deployed to keep the likes of Lazio’s Ciro Immobile and Pedro in check. The Slovakian centre-back has contributed two goals this term and could be an asset for fantasy players with regards to a goalscoring defender

When it comes to goalkeepers, Samir Handanovic is the first-choice pick. The Inter Milan captain has kept one clean sheet in the league this term, but considering his points tally of 82 points, fantasy players can place their trust in the 37-year-old to deny the Lazio attackers on Saturday.

LAZ vs INT probable playing XI

LAZ playing XI (probable): Jose Manuel Reina, Adam Marusic, Luiz Felipe, Patric, Elseid Hysaj, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro, Luis Alberto, Felipe Anderson, Ciro Immobile (captain), Pedro

INT playing XI (probable): Samir Handanovic (goalkeeper and captain), Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij, Alessandro Bastoni, Denzel Dumfries, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Hakan Calhanoglu, Matteo Darmian, Edin Dzeko, Lautaro Martinez
