    The penultimate fixture of the weekend in the Italian Serie A is a huge match between Lazio and Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

    The game will take place on Sunday the 19th of March and the hosts begin the weekend in 3rd place on 49 points while the ‘visitors’ are in 5th place on 47 points.

    Lazio come into the match on the back of a disappointing 2-1 loss at AZ in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night.

    The Dutch club held a 2-1 lead from the first leg in Rome but Lazio levelled the tie with a goal in the 21st minute. AZ equalised 7 minutes later and scored a second goal in the 62nd minute to seal their place in the quarter final draw.

    That result means Lazio have failed to win any of their last 3 fixtures in all competitions. There have been 2 defeats in the Europa Conference League against AZ and a 0-0 draw away to Bologna in Serie A last weekend.

    However, form in Serie A shows Lazio are undefeated in their last 4 matches and have won 3 of those games. The wins have come over Salernitana and Napoli away plus Sampdoria at home.

    Trends show Lazio have kept a clean sheet in all of their last 4 league matches and there have been under 2.5 goals in Lazio's last 7 Serie A games.

    Roma are classed as the away team for this match but have no travelling for the fixture. They played in the Europa League on Thursday night and came away with a 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad in Spain.

    Having won the home leg of the tie 2-0, it was Roma who progressed to the quarter final stage.

    The draw in Sociedad means Roma are undefeated in 3 of their 4 most recent fixtures in all competitions.

    There have been wins over Real Sociedad and Juventus at home in addition to the draw at Real Sociedad on Thursday. The defeat was a 4-3 home loss at the hands of Sassuolo in Serie A last weekend.

    Trend show Roma have won 2 of their last 5 Serie A games and just 1 of their last 6 away league matches. There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 4 of Roma’s 6 most recent games in Serie A.

    Team news and Lazio will be without suspended midfielder Matias Vecino and injured striker Ciro Immobile.

    Roma are with defender Marash Kumbulla, who is suspended and injured forward Ola Solbakken. They also have doubts over the fitness of Ebrima Darboe.

    The Derby della Capitale is always a big game and with the added incentive of a top four finish, it is going to be a special occasion.

    Fans wanting to see a lot of goals may be left a little disappointed and we expect to see under 2.5 goals scored. However, this is going to be an intense match, with little to split the teams and the game could end level.
