SS Lazio at AS Roma

AS Roma +177
At the Stadio Olimpico, AS Roma will host Lazio in the Derby Della Capitale.
AS Roma are currently 4th in Serie A with 38 points from their 20 games. In their previous outing, AS Roma played Juventus in the Coppa Italia. It was a disappointing fixture for Roma as they were beaten 3-1 away from home. AS Roma maintained 47% of the possession and had 13 shots but it wasn’t enough as they had an extremely poor start to the match. AS Roma were trailing 3-0 at half time which was too much for the team to return from. Despite that result, AS Roma have still been in outstanding touch as they have won most of their recent matches.
On the other side of the coin, Lazio have been outstanding this season and are challenging Inter Milan and Juventus for the title. As it currently stands, Lazio are 3rd on the ladder with 45 points from their 19 games. If Lazio wins this match, the team could leap above Inter Milan into 2nd place. Lazio were also defeated in their previous outing as they were defeated 1-0 by Napoli in the Coppa Italia. It was a close match but Lazio conceded early in the match and that cost the team the result. Despite that result, Lazio will have momentum and they will be optimistic about their chances of winning this fixture.
Lazio and AS Roma last played each other in September. The match was hosted by Lazio and it ended as a 1-1 draw.
This should be a very close match since both teams are very strong and looking well placed for this match. With that in mind, I am going to pick Lazio to win this match. Lazio have been outstanding this season and I see them being good enough to defeat Roma.
