Lazio vs Roma preview, betting tips and prediction: Champions League on the line in the Derby della Capitale
Lazio to score 2+ goals @ 23/20 with Coral
Champions League heroes AS Roma return to league action this weekend with a derby against bitter rivals Lazio. The self-belief coursing through the veins of the likes of Edin Dzeko and co. will be incredible after pulling off one of the greatest comebacks in European history against Barcelona in midweek. 4-1 down from the Spanish leg, few people entertained the possibility of Roma clawing back but they managed it with the best performance in their recent history.

That same determination will be needed when they come up against Lazio, this being one of the biggest derbies in some time. Currently level on points, both clubs are occupying Champions League places with Inter Milan only one point behind. Defeat here could be seriously costly.

Looking at their recent meetings won’t help punters pick a winner, the two rivals swapping punches on a consistent basis. There hasn’t been a draw in the last five clashes and neither club has managed to string successive wins together in that sequence. Roma won the last meeting and Lazio – who have scored 25 goals more than Roma this season – will be keen to avenge that loss. We predict that both teams will score in another thriller in the capital.
