Lazio Form & Team News 


Lazio made a big statement on the opening game of the season. They defeated Sampdoria 3-0 away from home, with Ciro Immobile grabbing a brace for the capital-based club. 

After a disappointing season last year, Lazio and Simone Inzaghi will want to hit the ground running this campaign as they target a European finish again this season. They have struggled at home in recent times though. They have only won one of their last five home fixtures in Serie A, a 2-0 win against Udinese back in April. 

They are an entertaining side though. Their last seven fixtures have seen over 2.5 goals and bet365 are offering odds of 1.61 for us to see that again on Sunday afternoon. 

Ciro Immobile will be the focal point of Lazio’s attack on Sunday after impressing in the opening game and Inzaghi has no new injury worries or suspensions to contend with for the match against Roma. 

Lazio are currently priced at odds of 2.15 to win the match. They are considered favourites by the bookies but their recent home form suggests a draw may be better value at 3.60 with bet365

Roma Form & Team News 


Roma had a thrilling start to their campaign last weekend. The club drew 3-3 with Genoa with Edin Dzeko opening his account for the season alongside Cengiz Under and unlikely scorer Alexander Kolarov. 

The Rome based side dominated the majority of the game though and will be pushing for another strong finish this season. They have been inconsistent in the last few months. They have won four and drawn four of their last eight games, but are also unbeaten in their last ten Serie A fixtures. 

Their away form is not great though. They have drawn their last three away matches and have only won one of their last five. Their last away victory came in April, 1-0 against Sampdoria. This may not be as relevant as the match is played at their home stadium, but Lazio will have more fans in the ground. 

Paulo Fonseca will have a full squad to choose from at the weekend. Edin Dzeko will lead the line with Cengiz Under, Justin Kluivert and Nicolo Zaniolo all lining up behind him to supply support. 

Roma are priced at 3.30 with bet365 to win the match. The two teams traded victories last season but I don't see Roma winning this one. 

Lazio vs Roma Match Analysis - Entertaining derby

 
Both of these teams scored three goals on their opening weekend of the season and this derby has a history of featuring goals. The two fixtures between the two teams last season both saw over 2.5 goals, with Roma winning their home leg 3-1 and Lazio exacting revenge with a 3-0 win later in the season. 

It’s still very early to see which way both of these team’s seasons are going to play out but basing things off recent form and their opening day performances, a draw could well be on the cards here.

Fixtures between these two games always produce goals. Both teams have been inconsistent, especially Lazio on their home-patch. 

A draw at 3.60 with bet365 is excellent value. The two teams will both get themselves on the scoresheet here and fans are in for an entertaining encounter. A bet on both teams to score is priced at 1.53 with bet365.
