Lazio vs Roma Serie A Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Lazio vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: 19 March 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

A real buzz is expected in and around Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon as bitter Rome rivals take on each other in the famous Derby della Capitale in Matchday No 27 of Serie A.

On top of bragging rights, a place in the top-four of the league table is on the line, making the tension even greater in the capital city.

Lazio are currently in a better position, holding the third place with a two-point advantage on their city rivals who are fifth at the moment.

I Biancocelesti have been in good form lately with three wins and a draw in the last four rounds. They did suffer an unexpected 1-2 home loss to AZ Alkmaar in the first leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League tie but we will rather keep the focus on the team’s efforts in the domestic league.

Head coach Maurizio Sarri can be thrilled with clear improvements in his team’s defensive displays as Lazio kept their net untouched in each of the last four league affairs.

The run includes a goalless draw to Bologna last Saturday in a match in which we did not see much from I Biancocelesti in the final third (just two shots on target) at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.

Roma, on the other side, allowed as many as ten attempts on target in a shocking 3-4 defeat at home to Sassuolo last weekend.

Jose Mourinho’s men have lost two of the previous three league games, conceding twice to Cremonese and four times to Sassuolo along the way.

Lazio vs Roma Head-to-head

  • Lazio came on top in the first Derby della Capitale of the season, beating Roma 1-0 in November last year.
  • The outfits have two wins each in the previous four head to head encounters.
  • We saw goals at both ends just once in the last five H2H meetings between fierce Rome enemies.

Lazio vs Roma Prediction

Lazio have been playing tight football of late and it has brought them some nice results in the league. At the moment, we trust their back line much more than Roma’s. Lazio to win looks attractive at the 2.62 odds.

We would normally go for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick but there is no value in the 1.50 odds offered for such a scenario whatsoever. Instead, we will go for the correct score market and back Lazio to win 1-0 at the 7.00 odds.

Lazio vs Roma Betting Tips

  • Lazio to win @ 2.62 (13/8)
  • Correct Score: Lazio 1-0 @ 7.00 (6/1) odd.
