Tip Lazio - Roma
AS Roma have the chance to draw level on points with second placed Inter if winning this game. They are currently third in Serie A, five places and six points above hosts Lazio. Roma come into this match with only one loss in their last eight league games. That was a 4-1 defeat at Atalanta, the week before Christmas. That was the second time they have conceded four goals in an away league game this season, also letting in four at Napoli. Roma have won four away league fixtures though and they do score regularly on their travels though. Recent wins at Bologna and Crotone, were achieved with eight goals scored. Eight away league games this season have seen 33 goals scored and a few more are likely in this game. Their most recent game saw them draw 2-2 at home to Inter. They led in that game but needed a late goal to rescue a point. Both teams have scored in six of their last seven league matches and eight of the last 11 on the road.
Lazio are only three points behind the final Europa League place but have played a game more. They may be in the last sixteen of the Champions League this season but a loss here won't help their hopes of European football next season. They have won their last two league games though beating Fiorentina at home and winning at Parma. Only one of their last six league games have been lost, a 3-2 defeat at Milan thanks to a 90th minute winner. Home form for Lazio didn't start too well this season with only one win in their first six league fixtures. It was a tough schedule though with games against Atalanta, Inter and Juventus. Form has improved though with two wins over Napoli and Fiorentina to boost their European qualification hopes. Both teams have scored in seven of their last nine league games and seven out of eight at home. Go for both teams to score in this match.
