Lazio vs Roma Predictions and Betting Tips
Roma and Lazio go at each other for the chance to be called the best team of the capital for Friday's solitary game. Both teams haven't lost in three games, thereby setting up this game nicely. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Both sides clashed around this period last year in a match that ended in a stalemate. The last victory in this fixture dates back to the 18/19 season in which I Biancocelesti emerged 3-0 winners. Will they manage another victory against their local rivals?
Inzaghi's boys on the up
As at this time last season, the Lazio fans had their hopes on the title but were let down by the players' inconsistent performances at the tail-end of the season. Since then, they haven't managed to get back to that stride as they currently sit in 8th place after 17 games. Nonetheless, it is to be noted that they're on a two-game winning run after securing victories at home to Fiorentina and away at Parma.
Roma keen on getting back to winning ways
Roma could be termed the most in-form team in the league at the moment given that prior to their last game, they managed five wins in six games. However, the momentum they built couldn't get them all three points last time out against Internazionale. A late Gianluca Mancini header secured a hard-earned point for Fonseca's boys as both sides played out a 2-2 draw. Mkhitaryan, after registering yet another assist is now up to 16 goal contributions for the season. Will the Lazio defence be able to keep the Armenian maestro quiet this Friday?
