Lazio hosts Roma in the derby of Rome, which is a match of 23 th round of Serie A. Before this match, “The Eagles” are on 9th position in the stantings with 31 points, while “The Wolves” are on 2nd position with 50 points.
In 2014, Lazio began moving in good shape and close to the four points of the places entitling participation in the Europa League. Lazio are unbeaten in their last five league games, registering three wins and two draws.
A few days ago, however, the team was leaving one of their stars – Hernanes, who joined Inter. This will definitely affect the game at Lazio, the Brazilian was as tenure holder in midfield team.
The hosts will enter the game with a slight advantage as the week Roma have a tough match against Napoli in the Coppa Italia. Team coach Eduardo Reja should take advantage of this fact and will surely wants his players to rule over the ball and towards the end of the game that affect the game, as expected in the Roma team to accumulate more fatigue.
After the defeat from Juventus on January 5, the team of AS Roma is sinless and recording four wins – three in the series and one in Coppa Italia. isit of Lazio will be the second consecutive in the league after the weekend the team of Rudy Garcia did not play as heavy rain postponed their match with Parma, but the last game for the team championship was as a guest of Verona, won with 3:1.
During this season, Roma beat Lazio 2-0, having previously had no success against “The Eagles” in five consecutive games. In the last few games between the two teams are not scored many goals, but the upcoming match Lazio must seek victory, and Roma is very dangerous on the counter-attack and I think it will be a productive match.
