A heavy bout is about to take place between two of Italy’s heavy online betting favorites, Lazio and AS Roma.
The squads are battling for the 2nd spot of the league table and are willing to fight tooth and nail in an attempt to gain the upper hand.
Lazio’s impressive run this season does not end with qualifying into the Coppa Italia final. More than anything else, it is its unprecedented rise, which caught the attention of many.
Right now, the squad threatens Roma’s grip of the 2nd spot of the table. Short by just a point, this match will decide if they will automatically qualify in the Champions League. This ambition is not so hard to achieve considering the fact that they have a better goal difference than their opponent.
The host has also dominated 2 of its last 6 matches against the capital club.
Roma currently feels the pressure of remaining as the league’s 2nd best squad.
Sporting a mere 1-point lead against Lazio, Roma cannot afford to be overconfident in terms of their fate in Serie A. A wrong move could easily destroy everything that they have worked so hard for.
Just recently, the club decided to go on retiro after suffering a series of setbacks, which have compromised their reign in Serie A.
Roma has only won once against Lazio in their last 6 encounters. This record readily put them at risk of losing and spiraling downwards.
Despite the (perceived) advantage, Lazio cannot be too complacent. Majority of their matches against the capital club ended in an even steven finish. And apparently, Roma is determined to share the spoils in this match than end up being humiliated.
Lazio 1-1 AS Roma
