Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Ground at Stadio Olimpico will be shaking when Lazio and Roma go head to head in the Derby della Capitale on Sunday. The Biancocelesti must be high on confidence following the Champions League win over Feyenoord and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home ground. Ciro Immobile, who scored the winner against the Rotterdammers, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts, while both Adam Marusic and Nicolo Casale should miss out with injuries.
The Giallorossi, on the other hand, recorded a come-from-behind win over Lecce in their last league match, with the team moving closer to the Europa League berth. Paulo Dybala’s return to the starting XI should help the team improve offensively and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Leandro Paredes misses the Rome derby through suspension, while Leonardo Spinazzola should recover in time to face Maurizio Sarri’s troops. Jose Mourinho can’t count on Abraham, Kumbulla, and Pellegrini for Sunday’s showdown as the trio remains in the treatment room.
