Lazio look a great bet to win the Rome derby on Sunday, live on BT Sport at 14:00.
Lazio v Roma – Sunday 14:00, BT Sport 2
In a weekend of huge matches this could well be the feistiest of the lot as Lazio and Roma clash in the Derby Della Capitale. Both teams come into this match in great goal scoring form and bookmakers are well-aware as Over 2.5 Goals is as short as 1.61 with Ladbrokes. That’s a little too skinny for us to get involved with given four of their last seven Serie A head-to-heads have featured no more than a brace of scores.
Worryingly for Roma, they are without the services of Mohamed Salah here. The Egyptian has been on fire this term. He’s started all 14 of Roma’s league games and netted eight times. When he’s previously been absent, the Wolves have struggled. Roma have won just one of the last six league games that Salah has missed which included two defeats against Atalanta and draws with Bologna and Torino.
Lazio look the real deal this season. They are unbeaten in nine with 13 points from their last five. Given all the above we can’t have the ‘away’ side as favs here. With Salah out for their fierce rivals they can take pride of the city once more and leapfrog Roma in the table.
