[SERIE A]Lazio - Roma: Predictions

September 25, 2021

Lazio's match against AS Roma will be presented in week 6 of the Italian League or Serie A 2021/22, Sunday (26/9/2021).

This season, Lazio and Roma both have new coaches.  Lazio is managed by Maurizio Sarri, while Roma is managed by Jose Mourinho.

Both AS Roma and Lazio set three points as targets produced in this Italian League weekend match.

Sarri's Lazio has collected eight points from the five matches they have played in the league this season (W2 D2 L1).  Lazio has scored 12 goals and conceded just seven.

So far, Ciro Immobile is Lazio's top scorer with six goals, while Luis Alberto is the most assist contributor (3).

Meanwhile, Mourinho's Roma has collected 12 points from five matches (W4 D0 L1).  Roma has scored 12 goals and conceded just five.

Jordan Veretout and Lorenzo Pellegrini have scored the most goals, with three each, while Tammy Abraham and Eldor Shomurudov have both contributed two assists.  Apart from two assists, Abraham has also scored two goals for Roma in Serie A this season.

In the middle of last week, Lazio drew 1-1 with host Torino.  Lazio avoided defeat thanks to Immobile's penalty goal in the 90+1 minute.  Meanwhile, Roma came back from the defeat against Verona by beating Udinese 1-0 through Abraham's single goal despite having to lose Pellegrini who got two yellow cards.

Sarri and Mourinho have only met once, namely in the 2018/19 Premier League.  At that time, Sarri was managing Chelsea, while Mourinho was managing Manchester United.  Playing at home to Chelsea, Sarri and Mourinho's meeting ended in a 2-2 draw.
