Match Preview

  • Lazio (W8, D4, L5) enter this clash six points behind their capital city enemies. However, a long-awaited run of two consecutive Serie A (SA) wins for the first time this season has inspired them. So too has that mini-run seen them register their fourth SA clean sheet, with Lazio winning precisely ‘2-0’ on all four occasions.
  • A strong start may be crucial here, as four of the last five league H2Hs to produce a HT leader have seen the team in question eventually win by over 1.5 goals. Additionally, the winner on the day has led ‘to-nil’ at HT in each of Lazio’s last four home SA outings (W2, L2).
  • In addition to boasting the all-time SA H2H advantage (W55, D60, L39), Roma have lost just once across their last eight league outings this season (W5, D2), with six of the last seven producing over 3.5 match goals. However, a clear area of weakness is evident, as Roma conceded all ten ‘goals against’ in the last six matches after the break.
  • Roma have scored at least three goals in four of their last seven league fixtures. Strong starts are the common theme, with Roma opening the scoring in all seven of those matches, and conceding just one goal before the break for six HT leads.
  • Players to watch: A scorer in five of Lazio’s last six outings, Ciro Immobile has registered five competitive goals for ‘I Biancocelesti’ against Roma, with all arriving beyond the 55th minute. Another renowned scorer of derby goals, namely Roma forward Edin Džeko, has netted two of his previous three H2H goals inside the opening half-hour of play.
  • Hot stat: “Si vis pacem, para bellum” – five of the previous six H2Hs have seen at least six yellow cards!
