Lazio vs AS Roma Prediction & Betting tips
The derby of Rome has always been a game to look forward to and that is no different this time. Both teams collected sixty points to date and that is why a lot is at stake on Sunday.
Of the teams that aces in third place behind Juventus and Napoli, Lazio Roma is currently in the best shape. The formation of trainer Simone Inzaghi even managed to get that third place in possession and will really do everything to defend that site. The Romans can now fully focus on the Serie A and that is a surprise. The 4-2 victory in the quarter final of the Europa League against Red Bull Salzburg gave Lazio Roma the perfect position for the return, but last Thursday it went wrong. In Austria, Ciro Immobile put the visitors on a 0-1 lead after half-time, but then the Romans collected four goals in thirty minutes and with that, the cloth fell to the Italians.
In the Serie A it all works a lot better. Lazio Roma recently lost to Juventus at home, but Lazio remained unbeaten in the four following games. Two weeks ago, Benevento was swept home 6-2 and last week Udinese won. In Udine the home team quickly took the lead, but then the goals of Immobile and Luis Alberto tilted the game. Lazio is already preparing to meet with AS Roma, a duel that will have to provide confirmation.
The busy schedule has not caused many injuries at Lazio and therefore Inzaghi with his full potential can start. The Lazio fans are hoping for the inspirations of Immobile. The current top scorer of Serie A now stands at 27 goals in 28 league matches.
That AS Roma in the semi-final state of the Champions League can rightfully be called one of the biggest surprises of the current season. FC Barcelona was in its own home on AS Roma with one and a half leg in the next round due to the 4-1 victory, but in the Italian capital, the game completely reversed. Edin Dzeko, Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas managed to find the net and that was exactly enough to eliminate Barcelona. The Romans will now concentrate on the Serie A again because there is enough work to do.
The last two matches in the Italian league yielded only one point and that has ensured that rival Lazio came alongside. On a visit to Bologna it was equalized with 1-1 and last week the players of AS Roma seemed to be in Barcelona with the meeting. After ninety minutes of football, there appeared a 0-2 score on the board after the duel with Fiorentina.
AS Roma has now had a tough midweek race, but that also applies to Lazio. Trainer Eusebio di Francesco can also have his best players and that is of course nice. Rick Karsdorp is still injured and it seems impossible that he will take action this season.
