Betting tips – Lazio vs AS Roma – Serie A
Kick off: 17:00
Lazio Roma and AS Roma will be face to face in the last game of the 37th fixture in Serie A. This seems to be the game that will decide which team will finish second. Biancocelesti’s morale is not the best, considering that they are coming after a defeat in Coppa Italia final, 1-2 against Juventus after 120 minutes. They need a good result here to secure a podium place and at the same time the qualification in Champions League. The hosts are on the third position, with 66 points and an impressive goal difference of 66-34. A victory will put them on the second place with the first chance to qualify in UCL group stage, avoiding the play-off.
- Lazio have the third attack in the league (66) after Juventus (70) and Napoli (68).
- The home side scored more than two goals per game in front of their own fans.
- Lazio also have the third defence in Serie A (34) after Juventus (22) and AS Roma (28).
Stefano Pioli lost Stefan Radu (injured) few days ago in Coppa Italia final, but he recovered some players. Radu will probably miss the game, same as Ederson and Biglia, also injured for Monday.
Lazio probable lineup (4-2-3-1): Marchetti – Basta, Vrij, Gentiletti, Lulic – Cataldi, Parolo – Anderson, Mauri, Candreva – Klose.
If we take a lood at the odds, it is very clear that the guests are the underdogs here. AS Roma struggled in the second part of this season, losing the title race with Juventus. Anyway, they still have a good chance to finish second, but for this they need at least a draw against their local rivals from Lazio. Totti and his teammates are getting better and better, proof that their form increased in the last couple of weeks, with three wins in the past four league matches. It’s always very interesting to watch Lazio vs AS Roma, but Monday will be more special, since this game could decide which team will play in UCL group stage and which one will have to face the play-off.
- AS Roma showed a very good game away from Olimpico, but this happened in the first part of the season.
- Now they are coming after four trips in a row with only one victory.
- Roma is undefeated in the past three meetings with Lazio in Serie A (two draws and a victory).
Rudi Garcia will have Florenzi available for this game and he will probably start the game. Francesco Totti is also expected to be in the starting eleven, with Doumbia missing. Gervinho, Strootman and Castan are injured and they won’t be even on the bench.
AS Roma probable lineup (4-3-3): Sanctis – Florenzi, Astori, Manolas, Holebas – Pjanic, Rossi, Nainggolan – Iturbe, Totti, Ibarbo.
