The match

Matchday 27 in the Italian Serie A sees arguably the most fiery derby in the country with Lazio and Roma facing off in the Derby della Capitale at the Stadio Olimpico. Lazio will be desperate to bounce back with a positive result against their fierce rivals after being eliminated from the UEFA Conference League in their midweek fixture against AZ Alkmaar. Their last outing resulted in a 2-1 away loss to the Dutch side, making it three matches without a victory for the Biancocelesti. Lazio’s last Serie A outing ended in a 0-0 away draw with Bologna, snapping the team’s three match league winning streak. Lazio is up to third in the league standings with a record of 14 wins, seven draws and five defeats, putting them on 49 points. They find themselves just two points ahead of their opponents today and one point ahead of fourth-place Milan in the battle for the top four. 

AS Roma will be looking to leapfrog their biggest rivals with a win here which would put the Giallorossi into the top four. Roma currently sits fifth with a record of 14 wins, five draws and seven defeats, for a points total of 47. Jose Mourinho’s men are through to the quarter final of the Europa League after prevailing 2-0 aggregate winner’s over Real Sociedad. Roma’s last outing resulted in a 0-0 away draw against La Real, which was preceded by a wild 4-3 home loss to Sassuolo. Aside from the loss to Sassuolo, Mourinho’s Roma side has been defending very well. They’ve managed to keep a clean sheet in five of the last seven matches. However, Roma will have to contend with a Lazio team that leads the Serie A in clean sheets with 15.

Key Statistics

  • Both teams have scored in only three of Roma and Lazio's last 10 matches.
  • Lazio rank second to the bottom in the Serie A with only nine of its 26 matches (35%) seeing both teams scoring this season.
  • These two sides rank in the top four defenses on the season; Lazio has conceded only 19 goals while Roma has given up 25.
  • Four of the last five meetings between Lazio and Roma have seen at least one team keep a clean sheet.

The bet of our experts

Both managers come into this matchup having to deal with fixture congestion following their teams’ participation in UEFA competitions. The oddsmakers are clearly favoring a hard-fought, low-scoring affair as they set the goals total line at only 2. Lazio manager will be without main striker Ciro Immobile as the 32-year-old continues to miss out. His absence has been sorely felt as Lazio has overall struggled to score consistent goals over recent weeks, netting just four goals in the last six games. With the extremely low goal line, getting this price on backing just one side to have a clean sheet looks to be good value. Our Lazio vs AS Roma prediction: Both teams to score: No
