In one of the central matches of the next round of the Italian championship, the players of "Roma" and "Lazio"will come face to face. Which side will win this game? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this game.
"Roma" failed the season. The team of Paulo Fonseca clearly expected to compete for a ticket to the Champions League, but failed to cope with the task. The Romans are currently in seventh place in the table with 58 points in the asset, having no chance to break into the top four. Napoli have five more points. There is a possibility that Fonseca's team may be left out of the European Cup altogether if they allow Sassuolo to bypass them. In the last round of the national championship, Wolves lost to Inter Milan with a score of 1: 3.
Lazio is also having a bad season, but Simone Inzaghi's team still has a chance of qualifying for the Champions League. By the penultimate round of the championship, the Eagles are on the sixth line in the table, with 67 points in the asset. Fourth-placed Napoli are six points away, but the Romans have a game in hand. It will be almost impossible to make a leap to the fourth line, given the fact that the competitors are performing. In the last round, Lazio managed to squeeze Parma with difficulty and won with a score of 1: 0, preserving the chances of fourth position.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Veretu (muscle injury), Zagnolo (knee), Diavara (muscle injury), Calafiori (muscle injury), Lopez (shoulder), Spinazzola (muscle injury) - all Roma. Milinkovic-Savic (broken nose) - Lazio.
