Lazio vs Roma Match Preview
The Derby della Capitale kicks off the action on Sunday in Serie A and this is sure to be a tasty one. Both teams would love nothing more than to get one over on their rivals this early in the season, and it would certainly be a big boost to confidence going into the new campaign.
Lazio come here on the back of a great victory, beating Sampdoria away from home 3-0 last weekend. They looked like a team that had been together for a long time, not a team playing their first competitive game of the season, so fans will no doubt be thrilled with how they started.
Roma on the other hand were held at home by Genoa in what turned out to be a six goal thriller. Although they took a point, and although they scored three goals there was plenty to be concerned about for their fans, they looked a little shaky at the back and if Roma are to climb up to where fans expect them to be, Genoa is a team they should be beating. This game gives them a tough one, but the ideal opportunity to redeem themselves and turn things around.
However, that will not be easy. There is little to choose between these two teams but based on their performances last weekend, there is quite a gap between them at the moment, which favours Lazio. On top of that, being their home game here they will have the majority of the fans inside the Stadio Olimpico, with the atmosphere sure to be intense. That all tips the balance in their favour, and while we see this being an entertaining game, eventually we think Lazio are going to come out on top.
