Lazio and Roma meet in the big capital derby of the Serie A
Everyone in Rome starts talking about football when Lazio and Roma meet in the big capital derby of the Serie A. These two rivals face each other again at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday. Let’s take a look with our football tips tonight.
Last season was really bad for Lazio. The Eagles finished 8th in the Serie A, which is totally unacceptable for a club which usually fight for a Champions League qualification. Despite of the poor finish of the season, Lazio’s board gave another chance to the manager Simone Inzaghi, who remained at helm.
Now Lazio’s season started in a terrific way because in the first round the Eagles achieved a very convincing 3-0 win during the visit to Sampdoria. Everything in Lazio’s game clicked and happened in the right way. The club’s top goalscorer Ciro Immobile scored a brace in Emil Audero’s net, while Joaquin Correa added one more for the visitors. If Lazio keep this level of performance this season could be very good for them.
In the same time Roma lost two points in their first game for the new campaign. The Wolves hosted Genoa at the Olimpico, but the match ended with a thrilling 3-3 draw. It was a debut for Roma’s new manager Paulo Fonseca, but he probably hoped for a better start.
Cengiz Under, Edin Dzeko and Aleksandar Kolarov scored for hosts, but Genoa fought well and won a point during this tough visit to the capital.
Despite of the way these two teams started the new season, you can be sure that the game between Lazio and Roma is going to be totally unpredictable. This derby always offers an enormous passion – not just on the pitch, but on the stands as well. We expect a thrilling game in our football tips tonight.
