Roma and Lazio are clashing at Stadio Olimpico in a Derby Della Capitale in round 30 of the Italian Serie A. Roma have been all over the place this season, they are very inconsistent this season, but they are definitely good enough to win this game. Lazio is a fantastic team offensively, they are scoring a lot of goals, but they are also conceding a lot of goals because their defense suck.
Roma is undefeated in their last 7 games, but they have 2 draws in a row now. In the conference League, Roma has drawn Bodo once again, and they will look to redeem themselves after getting their asses kicked by them twice. In Serie A, Roma is now in 7th place with 48 points, which is still pretty close to the Europa League spot, but as I’ve mentioned before, the competition is very strong for that in Serie A this season. With 13 scored goals so far, Abraham is the leading goalscorer for Roma with 13 goals, while Pellegrini has added 7 goals and 6 assists. Spinazzola is the only injured player for Roma at this time. I’ve mentioned Roma is inconsistent, they are not good defensively, but they certainly are good enough to perform better than they are at the moment.
Lazio is one of the best offensive teams in the league so far, they have scored 58 goals so far, but they have also conceded a lot of goals, 42 in total. Only thanks to their offense, Lazio is now in 5th place, which is the Europa League spot, but they will not reach that Champions League spot this season. in their last 2 games, Lazio has actually been playing well, they have scored 4 goals, won both games, and they have kept 2 clean sheets. Zaccagni is now the only missing player for Lazio, and he is suspended. With 21 scored goals, Immobile is in excellent form, and he is one of the best goalscorers in Serie A this season. Milinkovic-Savic has added 8 goals and 8 assists. Lazio is a very talented team offensively, they can outscore any team in the league easily, but they can’t do anything much because of their defense. I’m sure Lazio will be looking for a couple of defenders to fix their defense in the summer, but they won’t be easy to find.
This is one of the biggest derbies in Italy, and these are pretty much always rough and tense. Neither team is consistent this season, neither team is good defensively, but they can both score goals, especially Lazio. I see fouls here, I see cards, and I see a rough game.
