Pick: Roma @ 2.00 in Unibet / Result: (1-2)
This is the big derby of the Italian capital and one of the most important games of the round 34.
The two teams are rivals and they have the curiosity to play at the same stadium. However, tomorrow besides the Rome players feel like home, the environment from the crowd will be totally different, with the Lazio fans supporting their team and whistling Rome players.
The teams face their self in opposites positions at this time. The home team, Lazio, lives very difficult times fighting to stay at the Serie A. On the other hand the team of Rome is playing for the title.
The Lazio is making a very weak season. A place safe on the board is almost assured, and tomorrow they will try at maximum to difficult their rivals life.
In the last round, they get an awesome win over Bologna by 3 – 2 after they were down by 0 – 2. The previous two rounds result in two draws, both by 1 – 1 against Napoli at home and A.C. Milan away.
Tomorrow the team will entry determinate to stop Rome from getting again at the top of the league and to get the Italian tittle. After the huge victory away from home the players are very motivated e will count with the support of the enthusiastic fans.
The team of Roma didn’t start very well the season, but with the pass of time the team has starting to get decisive wins and points and when their opponents A.C Milan and Inter lost points they took the advantage. Three rounds before the team from the capital beat the Italian champions by 2 – 1 and approach still more to the top of the classification. In the last round the Roman team achieve the leading of the league when they beat Atalanta by 2 – 1 and saw their opponents Inter losing two points when they didn’t get the victory against Fiorentina, the best they get was a draw at 2 goals.
The players celebrate a lot this last victory because that gave them the first place on the league and they will be extremely motivated to keep it on the tomorrow’s game. They will play knowing already that Inter won against Juventus by 2 – 0 and besides they know that their rival will try to stop them, only the victory matters to get back to a first place that was so difficult to achieve.
For tomorrow I expect a very disputed game, with a lot of fight from both teams. The objectives of both teams are very different, but both teams want to leave this game with the three points.
The two teams are at good shape and motivated and the winner will be decided in small details and is in this point that the quality of the players from both teams is crucial.
The Rome has the advantage on this chapter, it’s a team with more solutions and better individualities. The Rome scored 59 goals, more 23 that the rival and have the same number of goals against, 36.
In the first round, Rome beat Lazio by 1 – 0, with a goal scored in the last minutes of the game.
I expect a better game from Rome and with more goals, getting the three points. It won’t be an easy task, their opponents will do everything to stop Rome from getting another Italian tittle. I’m waiting for a strongest Rome, knowing already that Inter has won and wanting to get this game as soon as possible.
My main bet will be on Rome victory against their rival on a stadium that they know very well but that will be full by another colours. They are in a good moment and with the possibility to get the lead of the league. I will also bet that Rome will be winning on the half time because I’m counting with a very strong and determinated start from their players.
