AS Roma is the favorite in the Serie A game that is set to take place on November 12th, but their odds aren’t significantly higher than their city rivals, Lazio. In fact, Lazio’s odds to win the 2023 Rome Derby are currently at +180, while the draw is priced at +210.
The upcoming game between Lazio and Roma is expected to be an intense battle, with both teams having a chance to come out on top. The odds don’t paint a clear picture of what to expect from this game, but it is certain that the match will be highly competitive.
The game is scheduled to take place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy on Sunday, November 12, 2023, at 12:00 PM ET. Fans can catch the action on Paramount+.
Lazio is facing injury problems ahead of the highly anticipated clash. The team is currently sitting in the middle of the Serie A table with a 5-1-5 record, which accounts for 16 points. They have suffered recent setbacks, including a loss to Bologna in their most recent Serie A game.
Lazio will be missing several key players in the Rome Derby, including Mattia Zaccagni, Adam Marusic, Luis Alberto, and Nicolo Casale. However, they managed to secure a 1-0 win over AZ Alkmaar in their recent Europa League game, even with some key players sidelined.
On the other hand, AS Roma is also facing challenges, particularly in big games. The team has only faced two title contenders so far and lost in both encounters. Their record in the Rome Derby is also poor, with just three wins in the last 10 duels with Lazio.
Despite AS Roma having a stronger squad on paper, Lazio’s recent form and the challenges they have faced could give them an edge in the upcoming Derby. The prediction for the game is a draw between Lazio and Roma, with the expectation of under 2.5 goals scored.
The game is expected to be a thrilling and closely contested encounter, with both teams vying for the victory in one of Italy’s most intense football rivalries.
