The highly anticipated Serie A match this weekend will feature a clash between bitter rivals Lazio and Roma at the Stadio Olimpico. Both teams have made strong recoveries after a slow start to the season, but the big question is, which side will come out on top and claim the bragging rights?
Serie A Preview
This weekend’s Serie A fixture will witness a monumental match between the two Rome giants for the first time this season. Lazio will have the home advantage on Sunday as they aim to bounce back from their recent defeat, which saw them drop to tenth in the standings after a three-match winning streak was halted.
A victory for Lazio this weekend would propel them to sixth place in the standings. They suffered disappointment in their last Serie A match with a 1-0 loss on the road against Bologna, managing just one shot on target in that defeat. However, they bounced back with a 1-0 win over Feyenoord in the Champions League midweek.
Roma comes into this weekend with four wins in their last five matches, positioning them to potentially move within a point of the Champions League qualification spots with another win. Their resilience was on display in their previous match, securing a dramatic home comeback victory with goals in the 91st and 94th minutes.
Home wins have been the outcome in five of the previous six encounters between these two teams.
Lazio vs Roma Head to Head
In recent seasons, Lazio has had the upper hand in this fixture, winning two of their previous meetings against Roma by 1-0 scorelines and three of the last four encounters. Their only win over that period was a 3-0 success in March 2022.
Lazio vs Roma Prediction
Given Lazio’s recent strong form against Roma and their confidence from the midweek win, it seems plausible to bet on the hosts continuing their dominance in this fixture over the past few seasons.
