Lazio and Roma are clashing at Stadio Olimpico in the Derby Della Capitale in round 18 in the Italian Serie A.
Lazio is finally playing in a decent form, and they haven’t lost any of their last 3 games in Serie A. Thanks to this decent streak, Lazio is slowly climbing the standings, and they are now in 8th place with 28 points, 27 scored goals, and 25 conceded goals. In their last Serie A game, Lazio was playing against Parma on the road, and they were the better team in this game with 54% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Lazio was great on both ends in this game, and they have deservedly won this game 0-2. Immobile is the leading goalscorer for Lazio with 11 goals, while Caicedo added 6 goals. Milinkovic-Savic has added 5 assists. Proto, Lulic, Fares, and Correa are all injured for Lazio at the moment. Lazio is a good team, but they are far from their form from last season. Lazio is showing some signs of life, but now they need to stay consistent if they want to even think about the Champions League spot.
Roma is in fantastic form, and they are one of the best teams in Serie A this season, Roma has won 5 of their last 7 games while losing one, and tying one game. With 37 scored goals, Roma is one of the best offensive teams in Serie A, but their defense is not that good with 26 conceded goals. Roma is now in 3rd place with 34 points, and they are a serious contestant for the Champions League, and possibly even the Serie A title. Roma was hosting Inter in their latest Serie A game, and they were solid with 50% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and high 89% of the correct passes. Roma was leading 1-0 at halftime but Inter turned the game around by the 63rd minute. Luckily for Roma, they didn’t give up, and they were able to score a tying goal in the 86th minute. This game ended in a 2-2 draw. Mkhitaryan has been Roma’s best player so far with 8 goals and 8 assists, while Dzeko and Veretout added 7 goals. Zaniolo, Calafiori, and Pedro are injured, while Mirante and Santon are still questionable. I’m loving Roma this season, and I think they are playing fantastic soccer, and I hope they can stay this high in the standings.
Lazio and Roma are playing in the same stadium, but when Lazio was the home team, they haven’t lost to Roma in their last 4 games. The trends are slightly on Roma’s side in this matchup, but I’m sticking with goals here. This is one of the biggest derbies in Italy, and I expect goals on both sides.
