Lazio – Roma, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LAZIO - ROMA
Lazio defeated Sampdoria 3-0 away and made a serious request for the new season. Certainly the Roman Eagles have the ambition to fight for the top four again. With Inter, Milan and Roma will be difficult, and Atalanta and Torino obviously have the qualities, so every match is of great importance for these teams. Lazio sold two of his Portuguese good money talents to Wolves. These guys never played last season, but Lazio bought Lazzari in the midfield of SPAL and Vavro in defense of Copenhagen.
Roma very much wanted to attract Lovren from Liverpool, but the Reds never wanted to sell the Croatian. The wolves sold Manolas to Napoli and they needed a serious alternate. Such is the talent of Atalanta, Mancini, but with Lovren their defense would have been even more stable now. Still, Roma acted well and got Smalling from Man United. They allowed 3 goals from Genoa at home last round, and against Lazio it will be even tougher.
Expert view : These Roman derbies are always very hot. Last year Lazio hit Roma and now we expect a lot of goals again. The styles of both teams are such that there is hardly any chance of seeing a closed match. We would bet on Lazio as they are in better shape, keep the hosts and look more sophisticated, but this is a derby and anything can happen, so we offer Over 2.5 goals at 1.60.
Lazio had at least 3 goals in 9 consecutive games
7 consecutive games of Roma finish with over 2.5 goals
