AS Roma – Lazio, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ROMA - LAZIO
Roma came back on the winning road, having managed to prevail over Genoa in the front round, but previously allowed two home losses to both teams from Turin. The wolves are fighting hard for the top 4 as these two losses cut the distance to Atalanta. Lazio are 7 points ahead of Roma. During the week, Dzeko did not play against Juventus because he was suspended, so now he’s ready.
Lazio haven’t been that good for a long time. The fact is that they lost during the week of Napoli in Coppa Italia, and a month ago they dropped out of the Europa League, which means that by the end of the season they have only one goal – to return to the Champions League. Moreover, at the moment they even have a chance for the title, because if they take their match with Verona after 1 week, then the difference with Juventus will be only 3 points, provided that both teams have won all the matches by then, of course.
Expert view : Lazio is in a series of 11 straight wins, some of which came very hard in the final minutes, which made the Eagles show great character. The Roma derbies were not always as many goals and with much spectacle as expected, but this time the chances of seeing a goal show are much greater. Both teams play extremely offensive and have too many goals in their matches. We are Betting on Over 2.5 Goals at 1.55.
5 of the last 7 derbies have been played with over 2.5 goals
Lazio’s last 6 appearances in the league have gone with BTTS and over 2.5 goals
