Saturday night’s Derby della Capitale matchup between Serie A heavyweights Roma and Lazio at Stadio Olimpico might have a different outcome.

The two Eternal City rivals brought in new managers after a scoreless tie in November’s rematch and a subsequent Coppa Italia victory for the Biancocelesti. However, they both still aim to qualify for Europe.

Roma and Lazio: Previous Games 

In recent times, both Roma and Lazio have had upward trends. Daniele De Rossi replaced Jose Mourinho in the middle of January, and since then, the Romans have lost just once in league play. 

But recently, Roma lost its offensive spark. Across all competitions, La Lupa has scored only one in their past three games. Even Monday, in a scoreless draw with Lecce, they were fortunate to escape loss.

Lazio will enter today in good spirits despite their enormous March setbacks. A week ago at Stadio Olimpico, I Biancocelesti picked off Juventus with a 1-0 win. Their new manager, Igor Tudor, had a stunning bench debut.

We did not see any goals in last year’s November league match. In January of this year, Lazio advanced to the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia with a 1-0 win.

Lately, Lazio has had much greater success overall. They achieved three victories and one draw in their previous four meetings against Roma. La Lupa has been unable to score in four straight matches against their city rivals.

Probable Roma Lineup

Svilar; Karsdorp, Mancini, Llorente, Angelino; Cristante, Paredes, Pellegrini; Dybala, Lukaku, El Shaarawy

Probable Lazio Lineup

Mandas; Casale, Romagnoli, Gila; Marusic, Guendouzi, Cataldi, Pellegrini; Alberto, Anderson; Immobile

Betting tips: Roma x Lazio

Check out our predictions of the day for Roma vs Lazio

Prediction 1: Roma x Lazio / Roma to win

This weekend, Roma may finally break their Derby della Capitale winning streak that dates back to March of 2022, thanks to their current form and the support of club legend Daniele De Rossi. Igor Tudor is still attempting to unpick two years of ‘Sarri-ball,’ and goal-shy Lazio isn’t helping.

Prediction 2: Roma x Lazio / Under 2.5 goals

Everyone knows what to expect from the Derby della Capitale, but Roma will play with an extra drive to beat Lazio. After having their fortunes turned around by Daniele De Rossi, they are riding high despite not winning a derby since March 2022. Igor Tudor has taken over as coach of Lazio, but the club is expected to maintain a low profile while they adapt to his coaching philosophy. 

Then, the opening leg of Roma’s Europa League quarterfinal encounter versus AC Milan is scheduled to take place shortly after this. As they each want to secure a spot in Europe, the two squads would do well to avoid one other. Therefore, fewer than 2.5 goals will be scored in the Roma vs Lazio match.

Prediction 3: Roma x Lazio / Red card in match

Derby della Capitale is like any other neighbourly game—there’s a needle. The rivalry between Roma and Lazio has always been fierce. The last three head-to-head matches demonstrate this, with 23 yellow cards and 6 red cards. It’s also possible that a red card may be shown this weekend.
