Lazio are hoping to bounce back from a shock 3-0 defeat to Bologna last time out as they welcome Inter Milan for a Serie clash.
The hosts are stuck in sixth place with 11 points, six less than their opponents Inter who are in third on the table.
Inter Milan are yet undefeated in Serie A this season but find themselves four points behind early trendsetters Napoli after seven games played this season.
Lazio are sure to give a hostile reception to former boss Simone Inzaghi who quit the club to take over at the San Siro earlier in the summer.
Despite firing consecutive blanks in the Champions League, Inter have registered 22 goals in domestic competition so far this term: their best tally at this stage since 1950.
