Lazio Prediction – Can Lazio catch Roma off-guard?

It’s the Rome derby on Sunday afternoon and Lazio will head into this clash against Roma in confident mood having secured an opening day 3-0 win away at Sampdoria last weekend to give them a timely boost ahead of this important encounter.

Lazio’s pre-season preparations couldn’t have gone better for the hosts as they won all 6 of their warm-up matches which included notable wins against Bournemouth, Paderborn and Celta Vigo, but of course there’s nothing quite like the real thing and the competitive nature of Serie A.

Nevertheless, it was a great start to the new Italian top flight campaign for Lazio who picked up all three points last weekend, and the hosts will be looking to improve upon last season’s disappointing 8th place finish this time around.

With just 3 defeats from their last 14 matches on home turf at their Stadio Olimpico (which they share with today’s opponents, Roma), they stand a decent chance of getting something from this match.

But this is a local derby and the goal markets appeal here as 11 of Lazio’s last 14 matches at home have resulted in both teams scoring, as well as 4 of the last 6 meetings against Roma too.


Lazio v Roma Over 2.5 goals

Roma Prediction – Can Roma raise game for derby?

An entertaining but ultimately frustrating opening day clash against Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico ended in a disappointing 3-3 draw with their opponents, but they return ‘home’ for this local derby encounter against Lazio where they’ll be looking top open their account with a win, along with taking the bragging rights.

Roma grabbed the last European spot at the end of last season’s Serie A campaign as they finished in 6th place and 7 points above their local rivals, Lazio, which would have been satisfying to get one over their derby rivals.

Goals have featured heavily whenever Roma have been involved in recent times though as 10 of their last 15 matches overall in all competitions have resulted in both teams hitting the back of the net, and the likes of Dzeko and Kluivert will make problems for Lazio here.

All 5 of Roma’s pre-season matches also saw both teams score, so we could be in for a real treat in this Roma derby on Sunday afternoon.


Key-Facts – Lazio v Roma

  • Lazio have lost just 3 of their last 14 home matches in Serie A
  • Roma are unbeaten in their last 10 matches overall in Serie A
  • 4 of the last 6 meetings between Lazio and Roma have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

It’s a local derby so it would be difficult to pick a clear winner here, but both teams have been in good goalscoring form.
