Lazio vs Roma Betting Tips
The biggest rivalry in Italy, the Roman Derby is going to be the event of the day in Italy. Actually, this could be the most interesting duel of the entire round, considering that both teams have been in a goal-scoring mood. Sure, only one round has passed, but both Lazio and Roma showed what we can expect from these teams this season.
Lazio hammered Sampdoria in an away game by 3:0, which is something that gives them a lot of confidence ahead of the Sunday’s game. Another thing that’s making them confident is that Roma allowed three goals in their first game of the season. Roma played at home against Genoa and their duel finished in a 3:3 draw.
The favorite in this match is Lazio, but you never know what’s going to happen in such tense duels. Not only is the duel with Lazio of utmost importance for Roma, but their players also seem at least equally good as those playing in sky blue shirts. Roma were very busy during the summer, making some really exciting signings. Zappacosta came from Chelsea on a loan deal, same as Veretout from Fiorentina. They also signed Diawara from Napoli and Pau Lopez from Real Betis.
Roma’s squad looks pretty tough right now, but so does Lazio’s. This team didn’t make any big news during the summer transfer period. Instead, they decided to keep their key players from the last season. And judging by their performances against Sampdoria, it was a good decision.
The last time these two met, Lazio won 3:0. Can they do something similar on Sunday? Although they look capable of winning, Lazio probably won’t humiliate their arch-rivals. Instead, a very close game is expected, possibly with goals on both ends. And when it comes to the outcome of the match, the hosts do seem closer to winning it.

The win over Sampdoria was their eighth win in a row. Before that, they won every single pre-season friendly. Although those games had no significance, they served as a way for Lazio to get their strikers in a scoring mood. And Ciro Immobile now seems ready to add a few more goals to his name. In the match with Sampdoria, he scored twice. He could score at least once on Sunday.

They were awesome in the attack in the first round. The reason why they didn’t win the game was that they were terrible at the back.
