Inter v Lazio: Biglia confident capital club can stun leaders

Despite a dismal first half of the season, Lucas Biglia is adamant Lazio have the quality to deal Serie A leaders Inter only their third defeat of the campaign on Sunday.

Lazio, having finished third and qualified for the Champions League last campaign, are a lowly 12th in the table after 16 games.

Stefano Pioli’s side, who crashed out of the Champions League in the play-off round, are winless in their last seven league matches, although they did beat Udinese 2-1 in the Coppa Italia on Thursday.

The capital club are 16 points adrift of Inter, but a confident Biglia told Lazio Style Channel: “We should close the year with three points in Milan and we have the quality to do that.

“Give us some time and last season’s Lazio will be back. We’re a compact group and we just want results like last year’s.”

Lazio striker Miroslav Klose is a doubt for the visit to San Siro because of a thigh injury, while goalkeeper Federico Marchetti sustained a muscle strain celebrating against Sampdoria last weekend.

Santiago Gentiletti (hamstring), Senad Lulic (finger) and Ricardo Kishna (knee) are also unavailable.

Nemanja Vidic remains on the sidelines for Inter because of a back complaint, but Inter’s problems are few as they seek to take another step towards a first Scudetto since 2010.
