Lazio vs Roma
Italy Serie A
Date: Friday, 15 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
This week’s action in Italian Serie A is starting on Friday night with big derby match. Lazio “hosts” Roma in Derby della Capitale and we should see one hell of a match considering recent form of these two opponents. The Sky Blues have made significant progress on the table after collecting ten points from the last five divisional games.
They will hardly get back into the title race though, so top four placement is the biggest priority now. AS Roma have just finished an exhausting game against Inter Milan where they barely got away with one point and kept 3rd place. In terms of the odds, La Lupa are warm favorites for the win, priced at 2.30 rate.
Lazio vs Roma Head-to-head
- Both head to head encounters between these city rivals in the previous season ended without winner 1-1 FT.
- All-time stats are going in favour of AS Roma who have 23 wins in 58 encounters, while Laziali celebrated 17 victories.
- Seven out of the last eight h2h’s ended either with Over 2.5 goals or both teams scoring at least one goal.
Lazio vs Roma Prediction
Simone Inzaghi’s squad is entering Derby della Capitale from 8th position with 28 points on their account, six less than the opponents. Lazio had three appearances in Serie A in 2021 so far – it started with a 1-1 draw against Genoa, followed by victories against Fiorentina and Parma with total goal difference of 5-2.
Ciro Immobile keeps being efficient, managing to score three goals in the last four outings, so the biggest danger for Roma’s defenders is surely coming from him.
One of the main reasons why AS Roma are ahead in terms of standings is much higher number of scored goals, 37 in comparison to Lazio’s 27. Back line has kept only one clean sheet in the last eight games though, so the safest betting approach to this clash is through the goals market.
