Roma vs Lazio Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in four of Roma’s last seven games, and in four of the last six to feature Lazio.
  • Seven of the last 11 head-to-head clashes between Rome’s giants have seen both teams score.
  • Seven of the last nine matches to feature Lazio have contained a minimum of three goals.
  • Lazio have scored 58 Serie A goals this season, the second-highest tally in the division, while Roma have netted 47.

Derby della Capitale should entertain

Sunday’s derby meeting between eternal city clubs Roma and Lazio could go a long way to deciding the fate of Italy’s European places, with the cross-city rivals sat fifth and sixth in the table and separated by a single point. Roma lost the return fixture 3-2 back in September, and there is every reason to expect more fireworks in Sunday’s clash.

While Roma have gone unbeaten in their last nine league games, their defence has proven inconsistent, with both teams netting in four of the last seven games to feature the Giallorossi. Jose Mourinho was defeated in his first Rome derby earlier this term, and Roma have not enjoyed this fixture much in recent years, winning just one of the last six matches against the Eagles.

Seven of the last 11 head-to-head meetings between these sides have seen both teams score, and with Lazio seeing a total of 100 goals feature in their 29 league games this term, that looks likely to be the case once more. Seven of the last nine matches played by Lazio, meanwhile, have contained over 2.5 goals, with Maurizio Sarri’s men boasting the second-best attack in the division, scoring 58 league goals.

Thrills and spills expected in the eternal city

Given the thrilling style played by Sarri’s side, as well as the tendency for Mourinho’s men to be involved in high-scoring clashes with their rivals at the top of Serie A, neutrals should expect to be entertained on Sunday. Indeed, Roma have played eight league games against fellow top-eight teams this term; six of those contests have contained over 2.5 goals, and five saw both teams find the net.

Therefore, backing over 2.5 goals to be scored and both sides to score looks a strong play, while a 2-2 draw could represent a decent correct score prediction, with three of the last seven derbies ending level.
