Not only bragging right will thus be at stake which is why we can expect a true spectacle with huge tension on the pitch on the occasion.
I Giallorossi will come into the derby in much higher spirits. They won three on the bounce in Serie A, a streak which saw them go on a six-point cushion ahead of bitter city rivals Lazio. They are still one point shy of fourth-placed Milan, meaning anything but a win here could see them lose ground on Rossoneri.

Lazio vs Roma: Prediction
Lazio will go into the fixture in much lower spirits. They were not pulling up any trees of late. Biancocelesti lost three and drew one of last four games in all competitions. They were knocked out of Europa League failing to find the back of the net in two matches against Spanish Sevilla (0-3 on aggregate).
Simone Inzaghi’s men generally found goals hard to come by of late. They only scored two in last five matches in all competitions. Furthermore, Roma did not lose any of three derbies with Eusebio Di Francesco in charge as Lazio’s last win came in April 2017.
Roma scored at least two goals in each of last four fixtures across competitions. The won two and drew one of past three meetings with Lazio. We have to go with their win at 2.62 as the main betting option here.
