The Lazio vs Roma will be played on Wednesday, March 1, at the Olympico stadium, Rome. This match the first leg of Coppa Italia semifinal. In the second semifinal, Juventus will face Napoli.


  • Lazio is currently in a series of 5 matches without a defeat in all competitions. Also, they recorded only one draw during that series. On the other hand, they had only one clean sheet in that period, last weekend against Udinese.
  • Roma recorded 6 victories and only one defeat in their last 7 matches in all competitions. That loss came against Villareal in Europa League, and it was completely irrelevant since Roma won the first leg by 4-0. Last week they defeated Inter on the road by 3-1.


In their previous 10 meetings, Roma recorded 5 victories, Lazio won 2 matches, while 3 games ended as a draw. Roma is currently in a series of 4 victories in a row against Lazio. Also, in 3 out of those 4 matches, Roma won by 2 or more goals margin.


Lazio is in a solid form at the moment. They are currently 5th in Serie A, and if they save their position under pressure from the teams from Milano, Lazio will qualify for Europa League. The 3rd place isn't that far away either, Napoli is only four point ahead of them. It seems that Lazio's top priority is Serie A, but we must have in mind they are in the last 4 in Coppa Italia, and they are facing their biggest rivals - they won't need a bigger motive than that.

Roma is in an excellent form in 2017. Their biggest goal is the title in Serie A, but Juventus is currently 7 points ahead of them. Therefore, Roma's priorities are similar to Lazio's, but they will certainly do their best against their biggest rivals.

12.02.2017 Seri FC Crotone AS Roma 0:2 W


In the derbies like this one everything is possible. However, Roma defeated Lazio in the last 4 matches they played against them, and everything except their victory in the forthcoming game would be a surprise.
