Lazio vs AS Roma Prediction & Betting tips
This weekend the Roman derby is on the program again. Probably the last time for both teams the Stadio Olimpico feels like ‘home’, as AS Roma is expected to enter this year in the new Stadio della Roma. Earlier this season, AS Roma won the home game 3-1 and considering that they both need the points to get European football it seems to be a real battle again.
For Lazio, 2019 started disappointing. It lost the league matches against Napoli, Juventus and Genoa and was eliminated in the Europa League by Sevilla without even making one goal. In between was won by Empoli and Frosinone, but in both game Lazio had a lot of trouble with a relegation candidate and won only 1-0. Last Tuesday i Biancocelesti played at home for the cup against AC Milan and got the better chances but did not score again. Given that the Champions League places seem to be out of sight, Lazio should focus on placement for the European League through the competition or the cup.
It is striking that Lazio does not seem to perform better for its own audience. Last year this was already the case, when the Romans gained eight points more in the away games than in the home games. This season, Lazio only won half of the home games.
For AS Roma, there appeared to be a simple game last weekend, opponent Frosinone is one-after-last and did not win a home match yet. After successive defenders from defense and goalkeeper Olsen, Frosinone surprisingly took a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute. This already allowed AS Roma to set things right by the goals of Dzeko and Pellegrini in the 31st and 32nd minutes. In the second half, the home team was the better and the 19-year old Inter-mercenary Pinamonti made the right equalizer. Frosinone even got a big chance of the winning, but later on Dzeko on the other hand made the deciding 2-3 in stoppage time.
Because of the three point, Roma is only one point behind AC Milan in the battle for a ticket for the Champions League. Nevertheless, trainer Eusebio di Francesco will be worried, against both number eighteen Bologna and number nineteen Frosinone were i Giallorossi big parts of the race namely the lesser party.
