AS Roma vs. Lazio: One of Football’s Fiercest Rivalries Rekindles This Weekend

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Hostilities resume in the Serie A this weekend as Roma take on Lazio in the Derby Della Capitale on the 20th of March. The match kicks off by 22:30 IST and promises to be a cracker of a game, as it is yet another round of a rivalry that is over 90 years old.

AS Roma and Lazio are in the running for European qualification, with just one point between them, further underlining the importance of this match. As both teams step out onto the pitch of the 70,000 capacity Stadio Olimpico, there is only one goal on the minds of both players, managers, and fans— winning. The derby also pits two of Italy’s finest managers, Jose Mourinho and Maurizio Sarri, against one another. With these two at the helms, there is no telling what can happen in this encounter.

Teams Status

Take a look at the latest form and team news from AS Roma and Lazio:

AS Roma Form and Team News

Jose Mourinho’s men started 2022 with 2 straight losses but have only lost once since then, winning 6 and drawing 4 in 11 matches since January. They have deservedly risen to 6th in the league, occupying the last European spot, although they have played a game more than Atalanta, who are in 7th place.

Before they clash with Lazio, they will host Vitesse in the Europa Conference League playoffs, where they already hold a 1-0 advantage. In 29 Serie A matches this season, Roma have 14 wins, 6 draws, and 9 losses and remain in the running for Champions League qualification. However, the latter is looking more unlikely with Juve’s recent form. Tammy Abraham is Roma’s highest goal scorer with 13 goals and 3 assists.

For their team news, AS Roma are still without Leonardo Spinazzola, who is expected to return in April after a lengthy stay on the sidelines.

Lazio Form and Team News

Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio may have failed to hit the heights of his Napoli team in terms of the excellent footballing displays they were known for, but they are already setting themselves up for a great end to the season. 5th in the league with 49 points from 29 matches, they have won 2 matches on the bounce after falling to defeat in Europe and at Napoli.

In all competitions, Lazio’s form has been shaky of late. With 4 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses in their last 10 matches in all competitions, they have not been entirely convincing. In the league, however, they have 3 wins, 1 loss, and 1 draw in their last 5, and recently, captain Ciro Immobile became Lazio’s all-time leading goalscorer, having hit the 21 goal mark this season.

For injuries and suspensions, Lazio will be without Patrick Dziczek, who is both suspended and diagnosed with a heart condition. Danilo Cataldi and Stefan Radu will likely miss the derby as they are sidelined with varying injuries.

Tipster’s Angle

Local derbies are feisty matches, and a fully packed Stadio Olimpico is an excellent atmosphere, undoubtedly. Roma is in better form than Lazio at the moment, although on the head-to-head record over the last 10 games, Lazio have the upper hand.

Lazio have won 4, Roma have 3 wins, and the other 3 games ended in draws, and only once in the last 10 games did an encounter between these two end in a goalless result. Here are our thoughts on the possible outcomes for the Roman derby:

Tip: Both Teams To Score @ 1.66

We expect a tough encounter, with both sides piling on the pressure in the early stages. In their last 10 meetings, Roma and Lazio have scored at least 1 goal apiece in 6 of those matches. We expect a similar result this time, and with Abraham and Immobile in such fine form, it is a likely outcome. Both teams to score is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.66 odds.

Tip: Roma To Win or Draw @ 1.445

Although we expect a tight affair, Roma are arguably in better form at the moment and have been able to grind out 1-0 wins in their last 3 victories. They will be highly motivated to go above their city rivals and have not lost a match since February. Roma to win or draw is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.445 odds.


The Derby Della Capitale is upon us, and with two feisty managers at the helm of both clubs, the stage is set for a match where emotions are expected to run high. Both teams are in the mix for European qualification as the league winds down, and every point is precious.
