AS Roma vs Lazio Betting Tips
The first Rome Derby of 2020 is happening this weekend. Roma are the host team, playing against their biggest rival Lazio. The away team is in fantastic form at the moment. Lazio have won every single Serie A match since October when they played draw with Atalanta in a match that finished 3:3.
The impressive run has put Lazio just below the two main title favorites Juventus and Inter. Right now, Lazio have only 2 points fewer than Inter as well, as well as one game played less. This means that they could leapfrog them to the second place if they beat their biggest rival Roma. Juventus have a bit more points than them. But even that is not impossible to reach.
Lazio would get to just three points behind Juventus if they managed to beat Roma on Saturday. However, doing such a thing won’t be easy. It’s not just because this is the biggest Derby in Italy. It’s also because Roma are a very good team this season. They are in fourth place right now, with 38 points.
A good result, that is, a win, would not get them to overtake Lazio in third place because the point gap right now is 7 points in Lazio’s favor. However, Roma certainly want to keep on winning because Atlanta are breathing by their necks with just three points fewer.
AS Roma are in a decent form having won against Genoa in the previous match, however, before that they lost their two matches at the beginning of 2020. Both of those matches were played at Stadio Olimpico. They lost to Juventus, while before that Torino beat them fairly comfortably.
It was back in September when AS Roma and Lazio met the previous time. The score was 1:1 and in that match Lazio were the hosts. However, that was the period of the season when Lazio were still trying to find their form. It’s a different situation now – they look much more capable and much more enthusiastic than back then.
However, this time, AS Roma will have the support of the fans. A big majority of over 72,000 spectators at Stadio Olimpico will be cheering for Roma. And that’s something that can help their players a lot.
