Lazio have defeated Roma in last two outings

Last season, Lazio finished in second place, but this season, Maurizio Sarri seems to be losing his magic. Currently, they are in 10th place in the Serie A, which is a situation no one could have predicted when the season started. In the absence of Sergej Savic and Francesco Acerbi, a void is clearly visible in the squad, but considering Sarri’s reputation, a win can make things better.

AS Roma have scored the third-highest number of goals in the league but are still struggling at 7th place, they have been the most surprising yet exciting team in the league so far. As Roma’s season began, Mourinho’s men looked like it would be another complicated one, but the arrival of Romelu Lukaku in attack has provided them with the leader they needed. They have all the tools now, but they need to be consistent in their defense. Roma’s loss to Slavia Prague in last game was a perfect example of how inconsistent they have been.

Kick-Off:

Saturday, 12 November 2023 at 5:00 PM GMT (10:30 PM IST)

Location: Stadio Olimpico

Form:

Lazio (in all competitions): W-L-W-L-W

AS Roma (in all competitions): W-W-L-W-L

Player to Watch

Felipe Anderson (Lazio )

The only bright spot in Lazio’s lacklustre US attack this season has been Felipe Anderson. Players like Ciro Immobile have disappointed Sarri’s team, increasing Felipe Anderson’s burden. It has not been an extraordinary season for him, but he has scored one goal and provided four assists in 11 appearances so far.

Paulo Dybala (AS Roma)

Having been prone to injury this season, Paulo Dybala just returned to the pitch last week against Leece. He is an integral part of Roma’s team and especially in attack, where every move is stitched together through him. With Lukaku up front, Dybala has a clinical finisher in front of him who was a big miss in previous seasons. He has scored two goals and provided three assists so far in the league.

Match Facts

  • Lazio are unbeaten in last 6 home games
  • AS Roma haven’t scored in last 2 away games
  • Lazio have won last two games against Roma

Injury and Team News

There are five players on the injured table at Roma despite Dybala returning last week. They have been plagued by injuries this season. Injuries include Smalling with a muscle injury, Pellegrini with a muscle injury, Kumbulla with a cruciate ligament injury, Zalewski with an illness, and Abraham with a long-term injury to his cruciate ligaments.

Moreover, Lazio has four injured players. As a result of the ankle injury in the last game, Marusic is doubtful, and Alberto is also doubtful because of a muscle injury, and if he misses, Lazio’s attack is in big trouble. Zaccagni and Casale will not be able to play due to knee injuries.

Match Prediction for Lazio vs AS Roma
