AS Roma may be seen as the favorite in the upcoming Serie A game against Lazio on November 12, but the odds are not significantly in their favor. Lazio’s odds to win the 2023 Rome Derby are sitting at +180, while the draw is priced at +210.
Despite the odds, it’s anticipated that the game will be thrilling and highly competitive.
The match will 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+.
SS Lazio, currently sitting in the middle of the 2023-24 Serie A table, is facing injury problems, with key players such as Mattia Zaccagni, Adam Marusic, Luis Alberto, and Nicolo Casale set to miss the upcoming Rome Derby against AS Roma. The team’s aim for this season is to secure a spot in the Champions League or Europa League.
In their most recent Serie A game, Lazio suffered a 1-0 defeat to Bologna, with several key players absent due to injury. However, they managed to secure a 1-0 win over AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League despite the absences.
On the other hand, AS Roma has a slightly better position in the Serie A standings, but they have struggled in big games, losing to AC Milan and Inter Milan. Their record in the Rome Derby is also not impressive, often struggling to secure wins, especially when playing as the visiting team.
Based on the current form and the circumstances surrounding both teams, the prediction for the upcoming Rome Derby leans towards a draw and under 2.5 goals.
Despite having a stronger squad, AS Roma may face a tough challenge from a determined Lazio side, who will be looking to overcome their injury setbacks and secure a positive result in the highly-anticipated derby.
