Roma vs Lazio: Match preview
This 21st round brings with us the great derby of Rome where Roma will welcome Lazio. Roma has been playing the game lately, but in the last round they achieved a very important win against Genoa, which had burned under their feet before that match.
The information that best describes the Lazio’s parties is that Lazio achieved eleven tied victories! In the last round, Simone Inzaghi’s team won a convincing triumph on their pitch against Sampdoria, and that match ended with a score of 5: 1.
Roma team news:
Roma suffered a heavy Cup defeat to Juventus after a championship win and a great presentation against Genoa. The fact is that because of the large number of injured players, Paulo Fonseca decided to rest a number of first team players in Turin, which was a clear sign that everyone in Roma prioritized good performance and a result in the city derby with Lazio.
Injuries continue to be a huge problem for Paul Fonseca as he cannot count on half of his players. They will play in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Džeko in the top of the attack, with Under, Pellegrini and Kluivert expected from the first minute, since there are no other options due to the absence of Paulo Fonseca. The big question is whether the side derby will start with Florenzi, Santon or Spinazzola, who recently failed to transfer to Inter.
Probable lineup:Pau Lopez, Spinazzola, Mancini, Smalling, Kolarov, Cristante, Veretout, Under, Pellegrini, Kluivert, Džeko.
Lazio team news:
Lazio set a record 11 wins in a row in the championship and thus became involved in the race with Juventus and Inter for the title. After all, before the city derby Lazio is six points behind the leading Juventus, and only two points behind Inter, with Inzaghi’s team having a match less than their rivals.
On the other hand, the advantage over the fourth-ranked Roma is currently a big seven points. Winning in the derby means that it can grow to a huge ten. This would make Inzaghi and his players clear to everyone in Rome who is the “boss” in the city this season. The success of Lazio ended on Tuesday with a minimum defeat against Napoli in the Cup.
This means that he will not defend the title in this competition. They have something to regret in the club after that defeat, because after the early leadership of the host on San Paolo, Immobile had a great opportunity to express the equalizer, but he desperately took a shot from the white spot.
Probable lineup: Strakosha, Luiz Felipe, Acerbi, Radu, Lazzari, Milinković-Savić, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto, Lulić, Correa, Immobile.
As far as the big derby of Rome is concerned, it is known that there are no favorites here. Although Lazio has been playing much better lately. However, we think that both will score at least one goal in this match.
