Lazio vs Roma Match Preview and Insights
The Derby della Capitale, or the Rome derby, is one of the popular local derbies in the world of football. It features Lazio and Roma going up against each other at the Stadio Olimpico. It is one of the oldest derbies in the world with the first meeting taking place in 1929. Since both teams have spent a major chunk of their time in the top division, this fierce intra-city derby has also taken place in more than 170 occasions. Even though most of these meetings take place in the Italian Serie A, fans have also witnessed this match being played out in the UEFA Super Cup and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup competitions.
There have been more than 170 games between Lazio and Roma with a remarkable 150+ meetings coming in the Italian Serie A. Roma have a slender advantage in the head-to-head record with 50+ wins while Lazio only managed 35+ wins. There have been more stalemates in these two clubs whenever they have met in the league. In recent meetings between the two clubs, the match has more often been a stalemate – especially when Lazio have been the home team.
Lazio have been going through a lot of trouble in the 2020-21 campaign. A fourth place finish in the previous campaign masks the problems that the club are going through at the moment. It has been difficult for manager Simone Inzaghi to do much about the defence, which has been leaking goals for fun. In fact, Lazio have been conceding too many goals for the last few seasons and it has prevented the club from finishing much higher in the league table. The club remain heavily reliant on Ciro Immobile, but Lazio have been continuously let down by a defence that has been conceding far too many goals.
Roma have been offensively solid in the 2020-21 campaign. This has helped them beat teams who have inferior quality. The ability to win comfortable games has put Roma in a strong position when it comes to the league standings. The club has incredibly shown a lot of resilience to avoid defeats. It will be difficult for other opponents to overcome Roma when they are in good form. The team has a good mix of youth and experience, while the presence of a significant goalscoring threat makes them a big threat against top teams.

Total goals over 2.5
