It is time for the first Derby della Capitale of the season, and these Lazio vs Roma betting picks suggest that a high-scoring affair is expected at the Stadio Olimpico. Our sportsbook offers the best markets in Italian top-flight soccer today.
Lazio Struggling for Goals
Lazio continues to perform well in the Champions League, navigating a tricky-looking group. But the team has struggled in Serie A and lost to Bologna last weekend to leave them in midtable.
Maurizio Sarri will also be sweating on several injury concerns to some of his most important players after the midweek clash with Feyenoord. Just getting through this one with a point will probably be seen as a good result.
Lazio ended their three-win run with a disappointing performance in a 0-1 loss to Bologna last Friday at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. Lazio failed to register more than one shot on goal in the 90 minutes of action.
Sarri will wait to hear whether Luis Alberto and Mattia Zaccagni are deemed fit enough to play in this one, after picking up injuries in the week. But otherwise, Lazio should be at full strength for their biggest game of the season.
AS Roma Struggling on the Road
AS Roma recorded a come-from-behind win over Lecce in their last league match, with the team moving closer to the Europa League berth.
Jose Mourinho has never been too opposed to frustrating opponents in an attempt to grind them down, and we expect more of the same this weekend. Roma plays in the Czech Republic on Thursday, and his players may be a little tired for this game.
If Mourinho can field both Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala, he will feel as though the visitors have a chance to return home with at least one point. The Belgian striker could be the one to find the net for Roma, too, so if you love your Serie A props he is the player to back.
Jose Mourinho can’t count on Tammy Abraham, Marash Kumbulla, and Lorenzo Pellegrini for Sunday’s showdown as the trio remains in the treatment room.
Lazio Has Clear Edge Over AS Roma
Last season’s encounters between the fierce Roman rivals point towards a low-scoring scenario on Sunday as both ended in Lazio narrow 1-0 wins. Both teams scored just once in the previous six editions of the Derby della Capitale.
Five of the last six mutual encounters saw only one side score. Lazio has three wins in the last four encounters with Roma. The hosts lost just one home game this season, while AS Roma won just one of the road, conceding nine goals.
Lazio vs AS Roma Betting Lines
Lazio vs AS Roma Betting Picks for Nov. 12
The visitors enter this clash as slight favorites, priced at +160 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Serie A odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
Although the Derby della Capitale always promises to be a passionate and dramatic occasion, the actual game might not be one of the most exciting.
Expect a hard-fought clash and the honors to be even at the end of 90 minutes, a close fixture with both teams determined to cancel each other in the middle of the pitch.
