AS Roma – Lazio

It’s once again time for the big Rome derby of the Italian Serie A between the teams of Roma and Lazio. Here are our winning soccer predictions for the battle of the capital.

 

Roma and Lazio are two of the four strongest teams in Italy right now, but they are also in very different positions in the table right now. While Lazio are heading towards an Europa League qualification, Roma are currently 2nd and they are very close to securing a direct qualification for the Champions League.

 

Especially after Napoli lost two points against Sassuolo in the last round.

 

If we look at the standings and the amount of points these two teams have won so far, Roma are the favourite. But if you have watched enough Rome derbies between these two teams, you’d probably know that very often current form and class doesn’t mean anything, when Lazio and Roma are facing each other.

 

In December the derby was won by Roma, after the fine strikes of Kevin Strootman and Radja Nainggolan. Now Lazio will try to avenge the loss and please their fans, because for these two teams’ supporters, there’s nothing better than beating the big city rival.

 

Roma are also in a better form at the moment. They have won four of their last five matches, losing points only against Atalanta at home. In the last round they beat Pescara away from home, scoring four goals in the process.

 

As for Lazio, Simone Inzaghi’s team scored six goals against Palermo in the last round, but before that they won just one point against Napoli and Genoa. They have two wins in their last five matches.

 

These were our winning soccer predictions for the big Rome derby between Roma and Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico in the Italian capital. Good luck and don’t forget that this match is often very unpredictable!
