On Sunday, November 6, in Rome, at the Stadio Olimpico stadium, the match of the thirteenth round of the Italian football championship will take place, in which the Roman Roma and Lazio will play. The starting whistle of referee Daniele Orsato from Chio will sound at 19:00 Kyiv time.
Recently, the eccentric Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho has somehow subsided, which is why we do not see his statements with enviable regularity in the news feed. Probably, an experienced mentor is preparing something serious, as the latest results of his team indicate that Roma have gradually begun to return to their former condition. The recent match against the absolute leader of the championship race, the Neapolitan “Napoli”, was very close in the performance of the “wolves”, who, despite the defeat (0:1), pretty much drove the favorites.
On the back of this result, the Giallorossi gained a little extra confidence and finally managed to solve the necessary issues in the UEFA Europa League group. In the middle of the current week, Roma played the decisive match for reaching the play-offs against the Bulgarian Ludogorets, and managed to take revenge for the away defeat in the play-off. As much as Mourinho boasts of winning the Conference League trophy last year, he would not want to return to the matches of this tournament next spring. Separately, we note the effectiveness of the “wolves”, because in the conditions of the injury of the top scorer, Paulo Dybala, they still demonstrate attractive football in attack.
The upcoming Rome derby will be the 180th in the history of relations between the two metropolitan teams, but once again Jose Mourinho will worry about his own image in this confrontation, as the no less charismatic Eagles head coach Maurizio Sarri will play opposite him. Biancocelesti are again slightly behind their principal rivals in the standings, but last season such close relations between the teams – one point difference – remained until the final matches of the championship. Roma then lost in a situational race, so now Lazio will try to win back the lost positions.
The notorious “sarriball” and an excellent defense game will help the “eagles” in this. Only Turin’s Juventus (7 goals) and Atalanta Bergamas (8) conceded fewer or as many goals as Lazio, but Sarri’s players also score on par with Inter and Milan – 24 against 25 goals for both, respectively. However, in the last week, something broke for the Sky Blues – a defeat from the Dutch Feyenoord (0: 1) in the unique Europa League group, where each team scored eight points, turned into Lazio’s relegation to the Conference League. And the previous failure in the game against Salernitana (1:3) now looks almost like a harbinger of disaster.
“Roma”: Patricio – Ibanez, Smalling, Mancini – Zalewski, Matic, Cristante, Karsdorp – Pellegrini, Zaniolo – Abraham.
“Lazio”: Scored – Marušić, Romagnoli, Casale, Laccari – Luis Alberto, Cataldi, Vesino – Dzaccagni, Andresson, Pedro.
Out: Darbo, Wijnaldum, Dybala, Spinazzola-Bertini, Milinkovic-Savic, Fares.
Forecast for confrontation
We believe that in the upcoming game we will have a tough fight with a scoring outcome. Our bet will be the position – TB 3.0 with a coefficient of 2.75 on the Parimatch line.
