Lazio play host to Roma, when the local rivals team up for another spicy derby in Serie A this coming Sunday at Stadio Olimpico, Rome.

Lazio are currently looking at 49 points on their account, having played 26 matches, leaving them two places off the current Serie A leaders. Meanwhile, Roma find themselves as number five in the Serie A with 47 points following 26 rounds.

The two sides seem evenly matched, but Roma can leapfrog Lazio in the Serie A table. They are no doubt highly motivated by the chance to overtake their hosts in the standings.

Lazio only average a modest 1.4 goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored 14 goals. They also conceded six for an average of 0.6 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring six times.

When it comes to goal-scoring Roma are not the most prolific side. They scored a sustainable 16 times in their previous ten matches, making it 1.6 goals per game. They conceded 11 goals for an average of 1.1 a game, achieving a clean sheet in five of these matches.

The last time the pair played each other Lazio came away as 0-1 winners, and rest assured they have a similar outcome in mind this coming Sunday.
