Two of the most bitter rivals in Italy, and both chase Scudetton. A win here, for either party, would put a lot of pressure on Naples at the top of Series A. This because they have played less matched.
If Lazio wins – one point up to them. If Rome wins – two. As you understand, it’s not just honors and glory at play this Saturday afternoon, but three terribly important points. Such as can ultimately mean the difference between a title or not.
And what sets a little extra piff on the match is how powerful the law is. Roma has won five straight matches, of which the last, ie before the break, with 4-2 over Fiorentina. Lazio’s statistics are even more startling; nine straight won and 13 of the 14 last dito.
Felipe Anderson, who had a bad helmet, could stand for his annual defeat for Lazio. Mauricio is missing. Roma has Rick Karsdorp away and possibly also Radja Nainggolan.

Open derby
I can buy Roma as favorites, but scarcely scarcely. Lazio should definitely not be underestimated.
In fact, Lazio is even found above Rome in the table, four and five, respectively, and with a pin’s difference between them. They have looked amazing; thus won nine matches on the rake – mentioned that several of them have come in the European League – and only one of the 14 last.
Now Roma is also in top form, which increases the uncertainty in the match. It is possible that Rome has something stronger material, after which the favorite cabinet is justified – but not how big it is. The fact that Roma is waiting for Champions League games can also affect, although focus will and will be a hundred percent here.
Add that clubs share arena and therefore the home / away factor is not to be considered.
Lazio has won two of the last three recent meetings. Would not be surprised at all if they at least pinched a stick here. 1-2 / 2-2 feels like natural outcomes.
